Did someone call Gerber Eats? This past Monday a two-year-old in Kingsville, Texas, was able to successfully order a #31 at McDonalds – no, wait… *checks notes”– 31 McDonalds hamburgers off the phone of his unwitting mother.
Beyond the folks over in Silicon Valley, no one is more technologically savvy than our youth. Before they can even walk, infants, toddlers, and other young ones becomes masters of the iPad, burning through incalculable Youtube videos, cracking into their college funds with micro-transactions in online games, and in at least one instance, ordering their body weight three times over in McDonalds hamburgers.
That’s what little Barrett Golden did in Kingsville. On Monday, his mother Kelsey left him with her phone, assuming the toddler would snap some selfies as he was prone to do.
“He usually likes to take pictures of himself, and so he was doing that,” Golden said.
A short time later, however, the mother was surprised to find a delivery driver at her door. Even more to her surprise – given that she hadn’t called DoorDash – was the driver’s delivery – an order of 31 McDonalds cheeseburgers.
Evidently, her youngest son had managed to order $91.70 worth of cheeseburgers.
“I thought I’d locked the phone, but apparently I didn’t because then DoorDash came with 31 cheeseburgers,” said Golden.
Before any of you readers start to question Golden’s parenting, know that her son gave the driver a generous tip of $16 for their services – so you know the kid’s going to be a-okay.
Ultimately, Golden shared the laugh with friends and even offered the extra cheeseburgers up on her Facebook page.
