We let our kids borrow our phones, and it’s not uncommon.

After all, sometimes, we are too busy, and letting them play or watch a game can really help.

No one is judging here. Most of us do it, and as long as we supervise then, it should be okay.

However, there is one viral story that ended up differently than a toddler downloading another game.

In Kingsville, Texas, a toddler named Barrett borrowed his mom’s phone.

For Kelsey Burkhalter Golden, that was okay. She gave her phone to her son and allowed him to play with it.

It even looked like he was taking photos.

“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,” Golden said to 11 Alive.

Her son was tapping the screen many times, so the mom initially thought her toddler was taking photos.

Instead, the little boy was adding cheeseburgers to his DoorDash cart.

Apparently, little Barrett was not busy taking photos. He was busy placing his very first order with DoorDash.

Barrett didn’t order a “Happy Meal”, he ordered 31 cheeseburgers from McDonald’s and it cost his mom more than $90.

There is one more surprise from Barrett.

When Golden checked the order history, he saw her little boy give a $16 tip! This little guy is a big tipper, don’t you think so?

Oh, no! That’s really expensive, and according to Barrett’s mom, her son didn’t even finish one burger.

Golden kept her cool and didn’t get angry.

Instead of scolding her little boy, Golden used this opportunity to help other people. After all, Barrett won’t be able to finish all of those sandwiches.

Using her social media, Golden posted on her Facebook account asking if anyone wanted some cheeseburgers.

“I have 31 free cheeseburgers from McDonald’s if anyone is interested. Apparently my 2 yr old knows how to order doordash,” Golden posted on Facebook last May 17.

Golden said one woman picked up 6 cheeseburgers and then others started messaging her as well.

Instead of being sad because of the money she lost, she used the opportunity to help.

Soon, all the cheeseburgers were distributed to the people who needed them. Now, that is a good cause.

Golden was, of course, happy about the outcome of her son’s fast-food adventure, but she learned her lesson.

From now on, Golden intends to be stricter with locking her apps. This way, Barrett won’t be able to order online again.

Good thing he only ordered cheeseburgers. Can you imagine if Barrett ordered something else?

“I guess I need to hide the app or something because Door Dash is not protected,” Golden said.

Do you have a similar experience? What did your child order?

What would you do if your child orders like Barrett? Would you get angry and frustrated, or treat it as a lesson?
