DES PLAINES, IL - APRIL 14: A wrapped cheeseburger and hamburger display sits inside the McDonald's USA First Store Museum April 14, 2005 in Des Plaines, Illinois. The McDonald's museum is a recreation of the first McDonald's restaurant opened at this location by founder Ray Kroc on April 15, 1955. The original red and white tiled restaurant was finally torn down in 1984 and the present facility was built according to the original blueprints with some modifications to accommodate visitors and staff. The customer service and food preparation areas contain original equipment and the all male crew is represented by mannequins dressed in the 1955 uniform of dark trousers, white shirts, aprons and paper hats. McDonald's will mark their 50th anniversary with an opening of a new restaurant in Chicago. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)

Looks like mom needs to fix those privacy settings on her phone asap. Kelsey Burkhalter Golden’s son Barrett took her unlocked phone and used it to order 31 McDonald’s cheeseburgers totaling  $61.58. After tip the order ended up being a little under $100. “He was really just flicking it around and making like roller coaster moves with his arms and fingers,” she laughed. “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.” The food came and Kelsey realized the order had been made at the exact time Barrett was playing with the phone.  Apparently the app doesn’t require facial recognition or any other security setting to order 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.” She ended up putting the burgers on Facebook asking if anyone wanted one. A pregnant woman took 6!
