At AOL Jobs, we hear many stories about bad bosses and unhappy employees. So we are delighted when we hear about happy ones. Especially when the tale centers on a subject that typically draws headlines for controversial reasons.

Last Friday when a Federal Judge lifted the ban on same sex marriage in Wisconsin, celebrations -- and weddings -- sprung up throughout the state. But some saluted the day with more than cheers, especially a local pizzeria. Melissa Tashjian, the waitress who served the "historic" newlyweds, asked her boss whether the restaurant, Transfer Pizzeria & Cafe, would give the couple a free dessert. Her generous boss picked up the whole tab instead.

Christopher Graham, who married Andrew Cappelle at the Milwaukee County Courthouse last Friday, posted a picture of his receipt on the restaurant's Facebook page, which quickly went viral.

"They were just such a cute and happy couple," Tashjian told WTMJ-TV. "Their excitement was contagious. They told me how the ban was lifted, and they had just gotten married. They said they were the 12th same-sex couple to get married and make history."
