    Obviously I was crazy for doing this, cause I just got my rear chewed off yesterday for this. I am doing inventory for the company (we sell and lease modular buildings) so, me being the intelligent geek that I am, decided to use my iPad. Now of course, I do not want to drop it, or ruin it in these biblical rains we have been having, so I purchased an otterbox for it and expensed.

    Apparently it was crazy, cause I got yelled at and denied for my expense. Now I am out $90 bucks and scraping to make rent.

    I have seen employees here expense purses, louis vitton purses. The company quickly put the stop to that transaction.

    I had to buy 8 rolls wrapping paper to wrap up empty pizza boxes and old shoe boxes to make fake Christmas presents for under our lobby tree.

    A general rule-of-thumb in the corporate world that I work in is this: if a group of you and fellow employees goes out to eat or drink while on an off-site convention or summit, the highest-up expenses everything. Well, most recently, the group I was in included 8 directors, 2 managers, 2 senior analysts, and me: the only analyst, the lowest of the low. And we were in South Beach Miami... the prices down there aren't very good, but nevertheless, the group went to a bar afterwards and I ended buying 3 rounds of drinks... $425 dollars later, my corporate AMEX is charged for the drinks due to my generosity!!!

    Needless to say, when I expensed it out, I had a nice talk with my manager and that's when I learned about how the highest up always expenses outings like that... guess I won't be going to conferences any time soon, but if I do, I'd like to show off a nice white iPhone 4!

    So, I was on a trip to a customer location for 2 weeks. Sitting at the airport waiting for my flight home when the work crackberry goes off -
    The man: "James, you still in Utah?"
    Me: "Yeah..."
    The man: "Good, we need you to stay for another week and wrap this up"
    Me: "..."
    The man: "thanks again ::click::"

    So, since I had already returned my rental car - I proceeded to the rental counter to get a new car. The lady asked if I wanted my compact back - I said sure then quickly told her to wait - "What do you have in the luxury category?"

    Needless to say, I spent the next week driving around in an SLK500 Mercedes... and EXPENSED it! Told the man that the car was so expensive because of the last minute reservation in prime ski season. He signed off on the report... $1500 for a week rental.

    Never again was I extended at the last minute. Victory!

    I'm a stand-up comedian and I used to do some jokes about the Nintendo Wii, so I wrote off a Wii & some games on my IRS tax return. Research! I'm working on a bit about hookers and champagne right now.

    While on a trip to Panama, my collegue had a 7am conference call one day 1/2 way through the project. While on this conference call (With London), he got fired. We then headed back to the hotel and proceeded to use his company credit card to it's max. The day started off at the hotel bar, where we ran up a $3,000 bar tab consisting of Cuban Cigars, top shelf liquor, lunch AND dinner. We then proceeded to a nice "gentlemen's club". We arrived back at the hotel sometime the next morning, not knowing what room we were in. Needless to say, the $15,000 bill from that night was priceless. Thanks for the good times Jon!

    24 cases of beer, 15 bottles of vodka, 6 kg of chicken meatballs and 1kg of dip sauce. Not for my personal use, of course - I was just in charge of arranging drinks and snacks for a party. It was quite a lengthy invoice, though.

    I'm keeping fingers crossed for the iPhone

    600 crab cakes and overnight FedEx shipping from Monterey California to the corporate office in Redmond Washington.

    Close to 3 grand. On the up side, everyone back home loved the crab cakes.

    A keg of beer. Granted it was for an employee party, but it was just weird to see it on the expense report.

    Three live goldfish

    There was a movie being filmed in my area and one scene of the film called for a fish scene where the child of some guy was feeding three goldfish.

    I was in charge of getting the fish and "keeping them happy and alive" while on set!

    Ordered 40k in medical supplies for the area of the hospital I was working in, had to go explain to my NCO why I was replacing 3/4 of the supplies on the floor. I wasn't allowed to order supplies after that, but we did have all up to date supplies.
