(Newser) – 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.

"Hey! Leave the free market alone. If they want to charge that much why shouldnt they be able to? So what if not everyone can afford it? Can everyone afford a yacht? Or a jet? No! Maybe only the super rich should be allowed to have cell phones. After all they only have to get one person to pay their bill to be set for life! " Sincerely, Mitt Romney
