New Jen's Horde

Oh yeah, the check's in the mail!

 
I've had some fabulously high phone bills, but never $218 Trillion!

Yahaya Wahab said he disconnected his late father's phone line in January after he died and settled the 84-ringgit (U.S. $23) bill, the New Straits Times reported.

But Telekom Malaysia later sent him a 806,400,000,000,000.01-ringgit (U.S. $218 trillion) bill for recent telephone calls along with orders to settle within 10 days or face legal proceedings, the newspaper reported.
Maybe his dad's been making calls from the afterlife? I bet that probably does add up fast...

By the way, this is my 700th post! I just happened to notice that when I signed in this morning, and I thought I'd share.

Isn't that ridiculous. It has to be a bill for the entire country. I can't imagine!
