arise, shine, for your light has come
Yeah, that's kinda petty. A former boss of mine--a guy I liked, by the way--was pretty careful with his money. As an old friend of his once said to me, "I love him, but he could squeeze the eagle off a quarter!"
In college, I did bookkeeping for the various entertainers (concerts, comedians, plays, etc.) that came to campus. One comedian asked to be reimbursed for the jumbo box of condoms he bought while in town.
I can just imagine what the response from our accounting department would be: Dear Mr. Comedian, per our company policy, we are only authorized to reimburse for condoms at a per diem rate of 2 a day. Additionally, we can only reimburse for the cost of regular-size condoms unless you can provide documentation that they were insufficient for your needs. We will require additional approval from your supervisor in order to reimburse the higher cost.
Holy Cow Andy -- it sounds like you could become an accountant without any problem! You're a natural at "accountant-speak."JF
