    ... The old saying is true, they grow em big in Texas, even the electric bills, ROFL:



    Texas woman hit with $1.3 million-plus electric bill

    We all dread opening an electric bill, especially when air-conditioning drives up costs and maxes out a family budget.
    But Kristin Harriger's recent electric bill was beyond shocking. Rather than a bill for $100 or so that the single mom from Abilene, Texas, was expecting, she was billed for $1,381,783.92, according to the Business Insider.
    "I opened it. I read it. Then just went, 'Oh, my gosh. That's a lot of money," Harriger told the Abilene Reporter News.
    She thought it was a joke at first, and even shared photos of the bill with her friends.
