This three-year-old boy has managed to use his mum’s mobile phone to order a huge McDonald’s feast delivered in 10 bags during lockdown.
Mum Raissa Andrade, 32, had left her phone lying around and it was spotted by her four-year-old son Tom who used it to order food to be delivered directly to their address in the city of Recife in Brazil.
She said that because of the pandemic, they have been making a lot of takeaway calls and her son had clearly seen what she was doing and decided to copy her.
He apparently asked the mobile phone about ordering McDonald’s and then took advantage of the promotional offers to request a feast, apparently even managing to confirm the address for delivery.
Among the food ordered were six promotional meals, six happy meals, eight special offer toys, 10 milkshakes, eight bottles of water and 2 McSundaes.
However, the youngster was far from impressed, complaining to his mum after rummaging through the bags of food that the “yellow minion” he had requested had not been delivered, and they had also forgotten an apple pie.
She said she had been to the doctor’s and had not dealt with her hungry son straight away because she wanted to shower in order to follow coronavirus health procedures.
Unwilling to wait, the boy grabbed the phone she had put on the side and managed to order the food costing BRL 400 (GBP 55) which ended up not going to waste as she shared it with family members living in the same building.
She said: “I got a call from reception saying there had been a delivery.”
When she realised that her son had ordered the 10 bags of food she said she could not stop laughing and was not cross with him.
She said she had been feeling a bit down over an unspecified health issue which prompted a doctor’s visit, and that the antics of her son had been the perfect tonic to put her back in a good mood.
