Changing change

It is funny with the cash box of the TeamBank. This year there are 123.628 euro. And 61 cents. Last year there was only 53. I was puzzled. And then learned: left side euro, right side thousand euro. I don’t like it. Left side precisely. Right side roughly. And both different. Doesn’t help. Does only distract. Particularly here: the longer number is often the smaller one. For example the cash reserve. Look, how long do you need to understand it?
