Your boss wants you to do what? CareerBuilder lists some of more wacky requests

Has your boss ever asked you to do something a little...odd?

A new survey from CareerBuilder.com uncovered some strange things that bosses have asked of their employees. Some of our favorites include:

* Boss asked employee if she knew of anyone who could "hook him up" with illegal substances
* Boss asked employee to go online and post false good comments about him
* Boss asked employee to come up with a science fair project for her daughter
* Boss asked employee to clip her dog's nails
* Boss asked employee to bail another coworker out of jail

Despite these crazy requests, most people give their bosses a good grade. Nearly 65% of those surveyed said they would give their bosses a "B" or better.

SOUND OFF: What's the weirdest request you ever received from a boss?
