Woman surprised with ‘hospital potato’ as Christmas bonus sparks viral reaction



Employee’s unusual Christmas bonus raises eyebrows and laughter online

A woman named Amanda shared her unusual Christmas bonus on social media, igniting both sympathy and laughter among online users. In a tweet posted on December 12, Amanda revealed that her workplace was gifting a potato bar as their Christmas bonus.

Expressing her disbelief, Amanda wrote, “I’m literally getting a hospital [cafeteria] potato as a bonus. They also said it has a $15 value, so it will be taxed on our next check.” She humorously added, “Does anyone need an assistant so I can just quit right now?” and concluded with a reference to her “Charlie Brown villain origin story.”

The tweet quickly went viral, accumulating nearly three million views. Amanda continued to share the amusing side of her predicament, asking if she should bring stacks of Tupperware to maximize her potato bonus.
