A couple of days ago, I wasn't particularly surprised when a taxi driver in Rome offered to take me to a special night club. I was surprised, though, when I examined my taxi receipts from this business trip in detail. A different taxi driver gave me the receipt below. I promise you, it IS a taxi receipt, and indeed you can see the word Taxi in the upper right hand corner. However, I bet that it was the large advert stretching from the upper left hand corner and into the middle of the receipt that caught your eye! Somehow, I don't think I can submit it as part of my expenses for the trip, so I guess I'll have to pay for it myself. I certainly don't want to suffer the humiliation of having the receipt refused, perhaps accompanied by an accusation that I'm trying to claim wholly inapprpriate business expenses!
