When a member of an emergency service (Fire, Police, EMS) gets a photo or quote on TV or in a newspaper, they pay the "hero tax" to their coworkers. generally coffee/donuts brought to the station.
Hey Harley, this you in the paper? looks like you, Mr hero over here, did you really have to flex for the camera? Looks like someone owes a hero tax!
