Back in the day (early 80's) when the oilfield in South Louisiana and Texas was rocking and rolling, I processed expense reports for a service company. There were regular submissions for entertainment that took place at local strip clubs, sometimes to the tune of several thousand dollars for an evening. Whatever the customer wanted, he got. Those days are long gone ....

The GM of a dealership I used to work for expensed a 5 day golf trip on the other side of the country so he can play beach side. The trip cost as much as operating expenses for his whole staff for a month

I tried to be honest and write times in/out to personal appt. while on a road trip--it was so confusing, the boss couldn't understand it and then for home business, I added play dough as an expense for daycare. Thanks for the contest.

After finishing my expense report I left it on the table and my brother wiped his chocolate infested hand over the statement number and all over the sides including my signature. I sent it in without knowing. I didn't mind the phone call that proceeded the next day.

The funniest thing that I have ever seen on an expense report would have to be what Congress listed on their reports a couple of years back. What was more shocking was the fact that they placed a value next to those items. An example of this would be how a toilet seat cost $2,000 while a hammer was listed at $1,750. What makes this story even better is the fact that a disgruntled tax payer found that this expense report was truly a wast of tax payers money, so he decided when it was time for him to pay his large tax bill, he visited his local hardware store, purchased the necessary items and marked them in care of US Congress.
It however is a shame that the IRS didn't have the same level of humor as this American citizen and sent him a polite reminder that his tax bill was still owed in full.

Specialty cheese while on a business trip. It couldn't be bought in my hometown, and I (happily) freaked out when I saw it at the market. I made so much of a scene that I think I scared the manager away - hopefully I made it up by buying a ton of the cheese!
My coworker and traveling partner got a laugh out of it.

I've convinced a client to switch reservations for an expensive business luncheon so that the restaurant a friend of mine owns could get the extra business.
Not sure that counts as padding the books, but my friend sure appreciated the additional business and we ended up signing the client after all.
Everybody wins! :-)

I'm a grad student working in a university lab. I was asked by my boss how to fill out an expense report, the sort of thing you might put a hundred dollars worth of solvent or gloves or other supplies on. He was apparently trying to write a common expense report for a six million dollar prototype electron microscope. I was too flabbergasted to do any work for the rest of the day.
