    Texas man receives $7.7 million water bill

    CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — When Chuck Richison received a water bill in the mail last week, he had a hunch it wouldn't float. Richison's bill normally runs about $55, but the new one was for $7,714,510.21.

    "It was the 21 cents that got me," he said. "You're not too worried about it because you know even if it is real, you can't afford to pay it."

    Richison, whose meter had been recently replaced, called the Utility Business Office for help — only to be told the meter hadn't been misread. The city later adjusted the bill, acknowledging he was overcharged.
