Slight Overpayment

Did you know that if you’re paying a bill online and, because you’re not paying attention, you enter the date in the payment box, you end up trying to pay Meteor €23, 022, 010?

Luckily I didn’t have quite that much money in my account, so the transaction didn’t go through (and I think I may have melted my bank’s website). If it had, I’d now have enough phone credit to be able to phone Liechtenstein for ten minutes every day for the next nineteen thousand seven hundred and ten years (yes, I am bored at work, and yes, I do have a calculator).

Which isn’t much use, since (a) I don’t know anyone in Liechtenstein and (b) even if I did, I’m sure the conversation would flag after the first couple of hundred years.

    I know someone FROM Liechtenstein. Maybe you could start with her mum and then move around her family. Might work for the first few centuries.
