Expense Report Craziness!
Once, while on the road for a TV station I worked for, I needed to buy music for a music bed from the iTunes store. I needed "Whoomp, There It Is" so I had to explain to a supervisor why they needed to reimburse me for "Whoomp, There It Is".

craziest expense experience
when i was working for a large software company
they consistently would deny my attempts to expense a snickers bar when i was on a trip, because it was not a meal, but without would hesitation allow me to expense $20 desserts at the fanciest restaurants.

Back in October, I was told bring a laptop to the American Criminal Justice Association National Conference, in Memphis, TN. Seeing how my work didn't provide me with one, I figured they must mean go buy one. Right? So, I purchased a MacBook Pro 13" w/ Intel Core i7. Upon my return, I submitted my expense reports (receipts attached) and went about my day. A week had passed and I thought I had gotten away with it, but I was terribly mistaken. After leaving my bosses office with my tail tucked between my legs, I faced the reality that I had just purchased a new MacBook Pro (taken out of my check for the next 8 weeks).

Expensive Best Buy
I was in a very unfortunate situation working on a computer for a client in the middle of nowhere. I needed a SATA cable, but realized I didn't have one with me (I forgot it back at the office. Whoops!).
One trip to Best Buy and $50 out of my pocket later, I was filling out an expense report for a $50 SATA cable no thanks to Best Buy's insane price markups.
For those that don't know, SATA cables usually run for $1.

Ok, that was not easy, but some day lat at the office, bored of ordering pizza and gourmet food (I was on a large R&D project, and close to delivery date, so we getting current doing overtime for 2 weeks, as agreement the customer paid our food, taxi etc), some guy suggest we ordered some kind of taco sold close to our office (a thing that we use to eat on parties only), very cheap (1/4 of the usual bill), our Chief (the one authorized with the company Credit Card), can't believe we will to eat this, we insist, but he told us, that he will report the expense as "Caloric & Entertainment Stuff From Mary's for XX$$ for the crew", instead "Mary's tequeños for XX$ for the crew" as must be.
We Laugh a day on this.

Last Act of Goodwill
Most popular supervisor in my office was leaving for a better offer, and as his last great hurrah, he used his company card, and invoiced our not so friendly boss for an office dinner at an exclusive steakhouse nearby. The damage? $12,000.

I was at a trade show in DC last month. I had a presentation that I prepared on my Macbook. My iPad was stolen from the hotel (I was to use the iPad at the my trades how booth). I went out and purchased one and expensed it. Little did they know the hotel also replaced it - so in the end I had two iPads. That same night I ended up expensing $400.00 worth the drinks and delivery at 3am. I <3 my job.
