I have a day job that pays the bills. I did some work for a company that I work for a lot, whose invoice for that particular afternoon would have run about 200 bucks. While at lunch with the owner, he decided that he wanted a surface pro. (I do tech-ish project oriented work, and it was a business lunch.)
We go into the MS store, and he says 'How about instead of invoicing me for today, I just get you one of these.'
It was a no brainer.
