KINGSVILLE, Texas — A mother of Ricardo received an unexpected notification Monday that left her confused.
Kelsey Golden read a message from DoorDash saying her order was going to take a little longer than usual due to the size of the order.
She later discovered that the reason was that her youngest son, Barrett, had placed an order through McDonalds…for a total of 31 cheeseburgers.
The shocked mother-of-three said she was working on her computer and didn’t realize her 2-year-old son was holding his phone unlocked.
“He usually likes to take pictures of himself, and so he was doing this (…) I thought I had locked the phone, but apparently I didn’t because DoorDash came with 31 cheeseburgers” , said Golden.
Golden and her family are in the process of moving, so she’s been extremely busy juggling work and the kids.
She once ordered lunch for her kids through DoorDash, however, she had it sent to their school, not their home.
The nearest McDonalds is about six miles away.
So she was surprised when she heard a knock on the door, and the delivery driver handed her what Barrett had ordered.
With 31 cheeseburgers in hand, Golden didn’t know what to do with the rest of the food.
“I didn’t know what to do with it, he only ate half of it,” Golden said. “So I posted on a community page on Facebook here in Kingsville and asked if anyone wanted some.”
People on Facebook reached out to stop and grab some cheeseburgers, while others tried to give her advice on how to store the food or donate it.
The total order amount was $61.58.
But the little guy felt generous and didn’t forget to tip DoorDasher $16.
After shipping, the total for the entire order was $91.70.
And Golden has a priceless story to tell about his cheeseburger-loving son, for years to come.
