What’s the worst bill you’ve ever received?

Because we’re guessing Solenne San Jose has you beat. San Jose, a French woman, recently received a bill for 11.7 quadrillion euro, or $15 quadrillion, reports Mashable.

That’s more than $15,000,000,000,000,000 for those of you having trouble picturing it. “There were so many zeros I couldn’t even work out how much it was,” San Jose said.

And it actually took some tussling with the phone company, Bouygues Telecom, to get them to admit they’d made a mistake. The actual bill: 117.21 euro, or about $151.

    It took some tussling with the phone company!? What kind of idiots are working at that phone company that they didn’t immediately say “yes, there seems to be an error”!?!?
