KINGSWIL, Texas – On Monday, the mother received an unexpected notice that confused her.
Kelsey Golden has read a message from DoorDash stating that her order will take a little longer than usual due to the size of the order.
She later found out that the reason was that her youngest son Barrett had ordered through McDonalds … a total of 31 cheeseburgers.
The shocked mother of three said she worked at a computer and had no idea her 2-year-old son was holding her unlocked phone.
“He usually likes to take pictures of himself, and that’s why he did it (…) I thought he locked the phone, but apparently didn’t, because then DoorDash came with 31 cheeseburgers,” Golden said.
Golden and her family are in the process of moving, so she has been very busy juggling work and children.
She used to order lunch for her kids through DoorDash, but she sent it to school, not home.
The nearest McDonald’s is about six miles away.
So she was surprised to hear a knock on the door, and the 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 them, he only ate half of one,” Golden said. “So I posted on the community’s Facebook page here in Kingsville and asked if anyone wanted to.”
People on Facebook reached out to go and pick up cheeseburgers, while others tried to give her some advice on how to store food or give it away.
The total amount of the order was $ 61.58.
But the little guy felt generous and didn’t forget to tip DoorDasher for $ 16.
After payment, the total for the entire order was $ 91.70.
And Golden has a priceless story about his son who loves cheeseburgers, for years to come.
