A Michigan dad claims he was slapped with a $1,000 bill after his 6-year-old son ordered a veritable smorgasbord of food from multiple restaurants over the weekend, resulting in a series of unexpected deliveries and possibly a starring position in an ad campaign.
After letting his son, Mason, play a game on his phone before bed on Saturday night, Keith Stonehouse claimed the food quickly piled up at their home outside Detroit. Instead, he added, the boy had been using his dad’s Grubhub account to place order after order from local eateries.
Kristin Stonehouse, the boy’s mother, said Thursday to The Associated Press that Grubhub has provided the family with a $1,000 gift card. She also revealed that the corporation might use the family in a digital ad campaign. The AP’s request for a response from Grubhub was met with silence.
According to his father, Keith, Mason Stonehouse ordered various Grubhub foods while his mother was out at the movies. The Stonehouses’ Chesterfield Township home was visited by several Grubhub drivers who brought them jumbo shrimp, salads, shawarma and chicken pita sandwiches, chili cheese fries, and other items.
“I don’t find it humorous yet, but I can laugh with people a little bit,” he continued. That’s a ton of cash that seemingly appeared out of thin air. When Keith Stonehouse’s kid placed an order with Happy’s Pizza for $439, the bank sent a fraud notice because his son had placed many orders from many restaurants.
However, Mason’s $183 jumbo shrimp order from the same restaurant was fulfilled and delivered to the home. According to Stonehouse, it took a few meal deliveries for him to figure out what was happening. At that point, he was powerless to stop the instructions from being issued.
Mason’s mom, Kristin Stonehouse, told the AP that he’s incredibly bright and has been reading independently since he was two and a half. Her assessment of him was that he has remarkable intelligence. They say, “He’s not your typical 6-year-old.”
She said that her husband had ordered food through the Grubhub app on his phone moments before she left for work and just left it open. She claimed her kid had hidden in the basement with the phone and ordered a meal for the family.
She and her husband reportedly conversed with Mason on Sunday morning, telling him his actions were the same as theft. Initially, “I don’t think he got that concept,” she added. To further emphasize the point, she and her husband stole $115 from Mason’s piggy bank, which they had told him would be used to restock their accounts after their recent vacation had depleted them.
The youngster seems unfazed. Then he picked up a cent from the floor and stated he had a clean slate, she recalled. Keith Stonehouse noted that his family stored most of the food in their refrigerators. He claimed he fed several of his neighbors, too.
He claims to have heard of similar incidents occurring to other parents, though never to the extent he faced last weekend. He suggests hiding the app drawer so children can’t accidentally open severe programs on their parents’ phones. He’s going through the motions of changing his password, he claimed.
I knew it was possible, but you still never expected your baby to act in such a way. “He’s certainly clever enough; I just didn’t expect it,” Keith Stonehouse remarked.
