What?! Pennsylvania woman gets $284 billion electric bill

An error left Mary Horomanski of Erire Pa. with a $284 billion electric bill

It was an awkward and confusing moment for 58-year-old Mary Horomanski when she went online this month to check her electric bill and found that she owed $284,460,000,000. Can you blame her? Mark Durbin, who is a spokesperson for Penelec's parent company, FirstEnergy, told the Erie News-Times, a decimal point was accidentally moved.

"We had Christmas lights outside, but we don't have the Christmas Vacation lights", Horomanski said. Not even Clark Griswold could rack up such a bill with Christmas lights, so it was obviously a mistake.

The bill had to be paid in full by November 2018 and the first payment for December 2017 was $28,156.

Former Steelers LB James Harrison expected to sign with Patriots
Both the Steelers and Patriots have earned a playoff berth and a bye-week in the upcoming National Football League playoffs. Pittsburgh and New England are playing for home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs in Week 17.

Horomanski says after getting the $284 billion bill, she told her son she wanted a heart monitor for Christmas.

That's a pretty big difference.

Penelec, Horomanski's provider, later confirmed that an error had been made after the family contacted the utility company.

After speaking with her son, who promptly contacted the utility company, she learned that the entire episode had thankfully been nothing more than a freakish error. "We appreciate the customer's willingness to reach out to us about the mistake", Durbin told the newspaper.
