    You can use either of both. I could not decide which one I liked better?

    First off, in the hay days of Silicon Valley, 4 of our Semiconductor Sales and Marketing guys when to lunch and after a couple of drinks, decided to see if they could run up a luncheon bill to $10,000, so they switched to wine, expensive wine that is. They finally became very drunk and gave up reaching $10K, but accounting paid the very large bill. The expense report included a long list of names of the non-involved. That company is now out of business.

    If you include an iPad, I can give some names.

    Secondly, a few years ago my neighbor took a new job as head of the IT department for a major Midwest University. Her first day at work on January 2nd had a big supprise waiting for her. After settling into her new office, campus security arrived asking to talk to one of her employees. That employee had gone to Los Vegas over the Xmas holiday and using the company credit card, charged $5,000 to get cash for gambling. After losing all $5K, he decided to charge more to win back what he lost. and then more, and more, and etc...and, Yes, he ran up the card to the unbelievable limit of $100,000. He lost it all was fired and there is a now new credit card policy in place.

    By the way, if I win the iPhone, it will be put to good use as I currently use an Android Phone and Tablet to teach Smart Devices for a college in Florida during the Winters as I am a Snowbird. I also formed a club which has grown to 57 members and I get a lot of questions on iDevices, but have limited experience with them. I have been borrowing carrier equipment and staff to fill in the void as needed.

    Respectfully Submitted, Frank Thorley

    It wasn't me (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it), but I once saw a live white bengal tiger on an expense report. Seriously. There was an expense report on my boss's desk, and on top of it was a white Bengal tiger. I couldn't get away fast enough...

    The Craziest thing I have ever seen on an expense report.

    Disclaimer: This was on a financial report from my college fraternity days - keep that in mind.

    The notable items on the expense report were.

    45 jars of pear baby food $51.75
    12 bottles of pepto bismol - $46.20
    4 Cases of Natural Light Beer - $51.60
    1 deck of playing cards - $2.00
    1 pair of furry handcuffs - $4.98

    Total= $156.53

    When our treasure had to document the purchases in our expense report. He marked it down as a necessary expense for the volleyball team. While this is dishonest, our volleyball team did excel! Yet the ingredients we purchased were for a "new member activity."

    I loved College.

    I once reviewed an expense claim for damaged clothing. I thought to myself there is no way this person can claim for damaged clothing on a business trip so I had to get more information before I could approve it.

    It turns out that on the flight they ran into some heavy turbulence and the person soiled their underwear. Having packed only the right number they had to go out and buy an extra pair.

    I still didn't approve the expense as they should have packed extra 'just in case'

    i saw someone put a pack of bubbalicious on an expense report once. had it been like cinnamon or spearmint or the like it would hve been more understandable, but a pack of bubbalicious seemed odd.

    Once, when I was the Assistant Manager at a retail store we had to expense a jar of vasoline to put on glass for some window display, to make it look rainy...or something. Our directions from the corporate office told us to specifically go buy it and expense it. Guess I was the first person to submit the expense report...cause accounting called me up laughing so hard they could barely talk. On their end the transaction it read: "Card Number, Last Name, First Name, ***, Man, Lubricant"...they screen shot it and sent it all over the company...it was funny, just wished it would have happened to someone else!

    Tickets to NHRA Drag Racing event.

    I was visiting a potential client, who happened to be going to the event the next day. And since I love automotive racing, I couldn't resist.

    I filled out an invoice for a M-198 Howitzer (155mm artillery piece) on my personal report after one was dropped from a helicopter in a training exercise.
    (approx. $520,000.00 replacement cost)

    I don't yet have an iPhone at all and came here for research...this would be a great way to grab one!
