Over here were taught to use points for 8.124 and comma for decimals.

According to this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiplication_sign he is correct, some countries really do use a fucking period as a multiplication symbol.
"In some languages (especially Bulgarian[citation needed]) and French[citation needed] the use of full stop as a multiplication symbol, such as a.b, is common."
