The Birmingham Water Works messed up on my bill and about 15,000 others.  But it was kind of shocking when you open the mail and the bill is $6,192 instead of around $100.  The billing date was 05-19-1920 and the due date was 06-02-1920.  This event made the news and the official said “it was a computer problem”.  Really?  I thought they were hand written.
