    I once had to expense a Pashmina shawl because one of our board of directors got cold during a meeting and didn't have hers.

    I worked with a guy who had an expense report that included dinner, drinks, "exotic dances", a tow truck fee, 2 parking tickets, and a pet grooming! When he turned it in the initially turned it down, but he went back and told them he was authorized by the CEO to do whatever it took to make the customer he was out with happy. They paid 95% of it!

    When I was managing a frame shop, I had to find and expense anything that was damaged while being framed - a UNC Jordan jersey, a NASCAR jacket, a signed Hippie-inspired Victorian print and a Japanese My Neighbor Totoro puzzle.

    It wasn't my expense report, but I did see "adult entertainment - private lounge & drinks." Needless to say, that was approved, but those partying days are long gone at my company.

    The company "accidentally" switched our cell phone plans so that we each had to pay for our own usage. I ended up with a 5,000 dollar bill because they also decided to "accidentally" cut out texting and data. The write-up was "I ain't payin' for this."

    Our clients (surgeons) ordered three $170 bottles of wine and the sales consultant I was with conveniently left before the check came. As the only corporate representative left, I was stuck with the check (~$1000) and had to do some 'splainin to our expense department to get reimbursed. And to top it off, the lead surgeon spent the entire dinner on his cell phone.

    On a side note, our expense rules were 17.5% max tip. A colleague used to calculate this and then add ~50 cents just to **** them off.

    I used to be Administrative Support for a team of salesmen and they would submit their expense reports to me after their trips. One gentleman tried to expense a new wedding ring when he left his old one in the bathroom of his "one night stand"'s hotel room. He tried to tell me it was loss of personal property on company business. Needless to say, it wasn't covered.

    The best expense report I've seen was for a company convention in Las Vegas. A vendor (who shall remain nameless) took us out to the top clubs (including Tao) five nights in a row. 20+ people all in VIP with bottle service was awesome, but the expense report (in excess of $200K) got him a call from the CFO. Good times, good times!!

    Pillows. I once had to stay in one of those overnight hotels with no front desk coverage during late hours and when I went to bed, I realized there were no pillows, so i went to the local walmart, bought some really good ones and expensed them.

    I one time put a $1500 for an executive desk chair which in comparison to my expensive 300$ one it must have been really good! Lol

    Hope I won!!

    While working at a hotel, I had a guest seek reimbursement for rainy weather. I wonder if they expensed it after we refused reimbursement.
