Certify, a business expense software provider, has released its annual list of the top 10 craziest business expenses of 2017, and they include some doozies.

Among them is a $6,500 charge for a helicopter ride to work to make it to a client meeting in time, along with a $50 charge for a massage in lieu of dinner on a trip to Central America. Those two expenses didn’t get approved, but surprisingly one expense that was approved was a $2,000 charge for a hang glider “to avoid a divorce.” There must be an interesting story behind that one.

Other bizarre expenses that got approved were an $885 charge to buy leather trousers after another pair got damaged on a desk at work, and a $30 charge to pay for boarding a pet snake.

To check out the rest of them, see the infographic below.
