I Bet Not

A computer glitch in the Norwegian city of Trondheim catastrophically overcharged people who pre-paid for municipal parking spots. In some cases, it attempted to drain their bank accounts of up to $148,000, which of course they didn't have. They discovered the overdraft when they went to buy food or Christmas presents and found their accounts frozen.

City parking official Steinar Myhr said, "I'm sure some saw the humor in it."
