A Pennsylvania woman knew her electric bill would be a little more this month because of the Christmas lights on her house, but was shocked to see how much more it was.

Mary went online to check her bill and said she almost had to ask Santa to bring her a heart monitor for Christmas after seeing a balance of more than $284 billion dollars, with a minimum payment of $28,000 due by the end of this month.

Her first thought was that her family must have installed their Christmas lights wrong, but her son called the electric company and found out that the decimal point was misplaced. Waaaaaaaaaaaay misplaced. She actually only owed $284 dollars.
