atta-boy
 n.— «“I like doing this sort of thing. I like helping people, and I’ve often said that this is probably one of the most enjoyable jobs I’ve ever had because we aren’t paid with money,” said Debra Sauerbier, Red Cross Volunteer. “We always refer to it as our atta-boys.”» —“A Holiday Without Pay” by Shari Small KSBY-TV (San Luis Obispo, California) Sept. 5, 2005.
