BBC – A woman in south-west France, who received a telephone bill of nearly 12 quadrillion euros, has had the real amount she owed waived – after the company admitted its mistake. Solenne San Jose, from Pessac outside Bordeaux, said she received a huge shock when she opened the bill for 11,721,000,000,000,000 euros (£9.4qn). This is nearly 6,000 times France’s annual economic output. She had requested her account be closed after losing her job last month. The former teaching assistant said she “almost had a heart attack. There were so many zeroes I couldn’t even work out how much it was”. The phone company, Bouygues Telecom, initially told her there was nothing they could do to amend the computer-generated statement and later offered to set up instalments to pay off the bill.
First of all if anybody could rack up an 11.7 quadrillion Euro cell phone bill a chick could. I mean I’m not exactly sure how much a quadrillion is or if that’s just a made up number or what, but if it’s a real a chick could do it. No question. That entire sex just lives to talk on the phone. Lives for it. Cook, clean, make babies, nag, talk on the phone. The Five Tool woman. Not trying to stereotype that’s just true across the board I think. Like I can’t talk to my own mother for more than 2 minutes without wanting to blow my brains out. But put your girlfriend on the phone with them and 45 minutes later they’ll still be shooting the shit about last night’s Bravo finale or something. Uncanny chat ability. But assuming that maybe just maybe there was a glitch in this bill you’ve got to respect the power move by the cell phone company saying she could pay off in billion or trillion dollar installments. They will literally explode and die before they admit they made a mistake.
