Pennsylvania woman gets $284 billion electric bill

Mary Horomanski of Erie Pennsylvania briefly questioned her Christmas light display after receiving a $284 billion electric bill from her local utility

She thought maybe her Christmas lights had done something wacky because her bill was more than $284 billion.

The Erie Times-News reports that Mary Horomanski said her eyes "just about popped out" of her head when she saw the number.

"We had put up Christmas lights, and I wondered if we had put them up wrong", she said.

Tiger Zinda Hai Monday Collections Early Estimates: It's A Merry Christmas!
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest figures. "#TigerZindaHai #TZH is Salman Khan's 12th film to cross ₹ 100 cr mark". Made at an approximate budget of Rs 150 crore, the film must earn Rs 300 crore to post a profit.

The bill had to be paid in full by November 2018 and the first payment for December 2017 was $28,156. That was pretty bad, but not quite as bad as the bill for $284 billion one Pennsylvania woman ended up getting from her electricity provider this month.

Horomanski said she is keeping a sense of humor about the situation.

Horomanski's husband and one of her sons were home with her when she checked her bill online, and they began asking if she was okay. A spokesperson for Penelec said the company was investigating the error and that it involved moving a decimal point by mistake.

"My son Mike and I were both saying, nearly simultaneously, 'Holy bologna, could you imagine if I had that automatic payment and it just came out of the account?' " she said.

Horomanski told the Erie Times-News the $284 billion bill also caused her to ask her son for a different Christmas present this year. "We appreciate the customer's willingness to reach out to us about the mistake".
