A New York man got the shock of a lifetime when he went to pay his electric bill and saw he owed almost $38 million! Tommy Straub tweeted a photo of his Con Edison bill and noted that he owns a 600 square foot apartment in Astoria, Queens, not "the entirety of Manhattan Island."

When Con Edison reached out to Straub on Twitter and asked how they can help, he replied "My bill is not $37 million?"

Luckily the company was able to fix the glitch and Straub's bill was reduced to a reasonable $77.
