The story of a 2-year-old Texas boy who used his mother’s phone to order 31 Mcdonald’s cheeseburgers is blowing up all over social media.
The woman got to know about the act after she checked her phone.
Kelsey Burkhalter Golden told local Houston affiliate, KHOU11 that her son Barrett placed the order on the food delivery platform DoorDash without her knowledge.
“My son was playing with my phone, I thought he was taking pictures, but when I looked back on my thing, it was ordered at the time he was playing with my phone,” the Kingsville resident told the publication.
Speaking to another station, KRIS-TV, Ms. Golden said she was surprised to see a message from DoorDash that her order will take longer than usual “because of the size of the order” – 31 cheeseburgers!
The mother of three was working on the computer when her son got hold of her unlocked phone and placed the order.
The total amount of the bill was $61.58, according to KRIS-TV and the little one even added a tip of $16.
But instead of scolding the child or getting upset, the woman decided to donate the burgers to those who wanted them.
“I have 31 free cheeseburgers from McDonald’s if anyone is interested. Apparently, my 2 yr. old knows how to order DoorDash,” she posted on Facebook.
Within minutes, Golden started receiving responses. While some of the locals picked up the cheeseburgers, others gave Golden advice on how to store them.
She later told KHOU11 that despite having offers to take some of the cheeseburgers off her hands, she intends to take preventive measures to make sure the situation never happens again.
“I guess I need to hide the app or something because DoorDash is not protected,” Golden said.
