    • I was recently helping a friend’s daughter fill out paperwork for a new job with a hotel and I was surprised to learn that one of the perks for hourly employees is pet insurance. I don’t know if it was just a thing done by that one hotel, or if it was true for the entire chain, but it got a smile from me when I saw this.

      Another example. I worked for a high tech company for several years and when I flew out to one of the design centers for a three week project, I was sworn to secrecy regarding their weekly Donut Fridays.


    • Not weird, but unexpectedly impactful:

      When I worked for SmugMug, they used to send me and my husband out for a special dinner to celebrate on occasion. We celebrated the news of our first pregnancy with fondue. Our server brought out dessert with a blue candle and a pink candle since we didn’t yet know the gender of our baby.

      I miscarried a few weeks later and I’m still grateful we truly celebrated that life, however fleeting.
