A Pennsylvania utility customer got the shock of her life after checking on her monthly electric bill and seeing that she owed $284 billion. "My eyes just about popped out of my head," Erie homeowner Mary Horomanski, 58, told the Erie Times-News. "We had put up Christmas lights and I wondered if we had put them up wrong."

Thanks goodness for that Clean Coal--otherwise her bill would have been much bigger...

I got a $5,000.00 electric bill once. I called the power company. They laughed and said they'd send me a new bill. Then they did; for $7,000.00.

You know those outside Christmas light displays can really suck up the power!

He was mining bit coins!!

I deal with numbers all the time and sometimes you get junk results. It's just part of life, you're supposed to know when you get one.

I had someone call me in a panic this month. Her sisters Wells Fargo statement said she lost 57 million. Thing was, it was a 1600 dollar mutual fund position. Somehow a computer miscalculated a capital gain distribution. I said calm down and give it a day to correct.

When you get junk numbers I've been trained to recognize that, and taught you don't 'get' the bad number. Even if it's published in an official source
