Many workers across the U.S. have been asked to do some pretty crazy — and at times potentially dangerous — things for their bosses. According to a new CareerBuilder study, 23 percent of workers reported that their bosses have asked them to perform tasks that are not related to their jobs.

You may get annoyed when your boss asks you to grab lunch for her while she’s in back-to-back meetings, but that pales in comparison to what other workers have had to endure. According to the survey, their bosses asked them:

To be prepared to delete all emails and computer files at a moment’s notice

To be a surrogate mother for her

To spy on senior management

To go online and post false good comments about him

To come up with a science-fair project for her daughter

To lend him $400 for a down payment on a car

To scour an abandoned office building for furniture and supplies they could use

To bail another co-worker out of jail

To clip her dog’s nails

Craziest thing your boss has ever asked you to do?
