    The craziest/oddest thing that I have found on an expense report is.......a $747.23 bill at a gay bar/massage parlor in Sacramento, CA. Normally you would think that it would be listed as Client Entertainment or Meeting Expenses, but it was listed as "Stress Relief" due to "over-working". The worker is married with 3 children, explain that one...

    I have 2 great ones that I have seen on invoices, both were written by my boss:

    Stupid Tax - 10%

    This was on an internal note for having to argue with a client about his network. He had argued that he had wireless in his office and he didn't need an access point (he was stealing someone else's wireless signal and was wondering why he couldn't access his network shares or network printers form the next door's wireless network...). The prices were just jacked up 10% at the end of the day but the internal note still says rates are adjusted 10% higher because of stupidity.



    Rat Removal - $25.00

    A PC came in that no longer turned on - first assumed power supply since it didn't even try to turn on, open the case to find a dead rat inside the case. I was the one that had to remove him - he was harder than a rock and must have been in there for weeks. All the backplates for the add-in cards were off and it looked like he rubbed up along the motherboard or something while it was on. Wore the thickest gloves I could find and the least we literally charged him $25.00 for rat removal - it was on the invoice.

    The craziest thing I've ever seen on an expense report(ok I didn't really see the actual report) was the tab from the strip club while at Interop a couple years ago I just can't imagine how that would fly

    When working in Asia Pacific, I once saw an expense report from a colleague in one of the regional centers put through an expense report for hiring prostitutes for himself, another employee, and two clients. Apparently the behaviour was common in that country, but most employees were lucid enough to call it 'entertainment'. Needless to say, they and their manager were fired (he approved it and sent it up the chain).

    When I worked for a HVAC distributor, we had a training session where several of my customers were in attendance. After the meeting, we all hit the bar. By the end of the night, there was a $900 bar tab. I was really sweating that one, but it finally got approved.

    What cha think? I believe that one deserves the iPhone!!

    I don't know how crazy it is, but my entire department got laid off and the whole last two weeks we were there, we had to show up to work, but didn't have any work to do. So we ha a string of pizza parties and it all got expensed.

    My brother-in-law is routinely seeing outrageous expense reports submitted by his superiors, where there are late night drinking sessions with clients that easily climb into four digits. And I emphasize the word ROUTINELY.
