Viagra is known to give a pick-me-up, but this one might outlast them all.

Janet Rodriguez had been an employee in the sales division at the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, the maker of Viagra among other drugs, for 16 years before she was let go amid a round of layoffs in 2009. The 54-year old received her formal severance package in March of the following year, and was surprised to see it marked up roughly 400 percent from the amount she thought she was due.
