If that were an Apple run company, they would have added 10% for questioning its validity.

"caused 12 zeros to be added"
"€11,721,000,000,000,000. "
so 11,721,000,000,000,000 - 000 000 000 000 = €11 721
see the mistake?
it's still more than 11 thousand
"which was merely 117,21 euro"

true that! 11,721 euro is so damn high. Maybe, it's around 11.721 euro for a phone fee or 117.21 euro :D

It is common to use the comma instead of a period for the decimal point in Europe, so 17,02 Euros is 17.02 Euros as we would write it in the US.

"which was merely 117,21 euro. A lot more bearable."

WHAT?!! That's still ridicolous for a phone bill. You can buy a house with that money.

I just noticed it's 117.21 Euros. Those commas instead of periods confuse me sometimes.

In some places I believe a comma is used instead of a decimal so it's really just over 117 euros, not 11 thousand.
