Looking for a little extra cash? Maybe your expense report isn’t the best place to find it.

Employers say people are getting very creative with their expense reports. And in some cases the items people are trying to get reimbursed aren’t 9 to 5 related; such as lottery tickets or pet food.

To see how extravagant some requests can get MSN Business Insider asked staffing firm Robert International to share what it has received over the years. So it handed over the latest expense report survey which randomly polled 1,600 companies with at least 20 employees. A Robert Half executive says the examples are entertaining but highlight a serious problem. If you aren't sure if something will fly don't submit it; expensing everything can affect the company’s bottom line.

Other examples that people have tried to expense include a speeding ticket, fine for crashing into a movie ticket booth and a teepee. To see the full list including the extravagant expense that landed at number one click the link below. Spending is a lot more fun when it's not your money.
