You just can’t trust toddlers. Texas mom Kelsey Burkhalter Golden learned this the hard way. The young mother was working on the computer when her 2-year-old son, Barrett, grabbed her phone to take pictures — she assumed.
She was wrong, and it cost her. It cost her $91.70.
Instead of taking pictures, Barrett was ordering 31 cheeseburgers through DoorDash. On top of this, the little “cheese burglar” included a generous $16 tip for the DoorDash driver.
Golden had no idea until a mountain of cheeseburgers were delivered on her doorstep.

She was going to have to find something to do with 31 cheeseburgers. Barrett ate only half a burger, so she knew she could not count on him to rally and eat the other 30 and a half. This would not be an easy task at the best of times, but Golden had an idea.
So, the young mom took to Facebook and posted her “used – nearly new” cheeseburgers.
“31 free cheeseburgers from McDonald’s if anyone is interested,” the mom from Kingsville wrote.
Just so people would understand the dire situation, she posted a picture of the adorable over-orderer nibbling on one cheeseburger next to the mountainous pile.
“He usually likes to take pictures of himself, and so he was doing that. I thought I’d locked the phone but apparently, I didn’t, because then DoorDash came with 31 cheeseburgers,” Golden explained to local news station KRIS.
Did people want to get into their cars and drive for cold used cheeseburgers?
We don’t know. But we can be absolutely certain that Golden will remember to lock her phone next time to avoid more cheesy surprises.
