One toddler did what many of us have thought about at least once in our lives—he ordered not 30 but 31 McDonald’s cheeseburgers through the DoorDash app, which showed up on his doorstep less than an hour later.
Kelsey Burkhalter Golden thought her son, Barrett, was using her phone to take pictures of himself. Turns out, he was actually putting in a pretty big lunch order at the local McDonalds. She posted about the hilarious mishap on Facebook, writing, “I have 31 free cheeseburgers from McDonald’s if anyone is interested. Apparently my 2 yr old knows how to order doordash.”

“He was really just flicking it around and making like roller-coaster moves with his arms and fingers,” Golden told TODAY. “I thought he was just looking at his reflection and carrying the phone around and about 30 minutes later, I got a text from the DoorDash company that was like, hey, it’s gonna take a little bit longer than usual to take your order.”
She didn’t think much of it at the time. That is, until the delivery driver showed up on her doorstep with 31 cheeseburgers. The order total was $61.58, but little Barrett thought of everything and also tipped the driver $16. In total after fees, the toddler spent a whopping $91.70 on his lunch.
“So I go and open the door and there’s this girl standing there and she’s like, ‘Your 31 cheeseburgers?'” Golden explained. “I just stared at her awkwardly for like 15 seconds but then I just took them, like, ‘Oh, thank you!'”
The most hilarious part of the story is that her son isn’t really a fan of the food. “He actually doesn’t even like cheeseburgers. He ate half of one,” she said. “We had about 30 and a half cheeseburgers on our hands.” Leave it to a toddler to work that one out.
For her part, mom took it in stride. She posted in a local Facebook group to see if anyone was hungry for a free burger (or 12) and ended up giving them all away to a local family, her neighbors, and an expecting mom.
“One was a pregnant woman and she wanted six, no judgment, you know? I was pregnant three times,” Golden laughed.
No judgment at all.
