6-year-old uses dad’s phone to order nearly $1,000 of Grubhub across Michigan town

As the food deliveries piled up outside a Michigan home, a 6-year-old boy was determined to be the unlikely hungry culprit.

It started on Saturday, Jan. 28, when Keith Stonehouse let his son Mason play with his phone before bed. That would set Stonehouse back hundreds of dollars, as Mason used his father’s Grubhub account to order from various restaurants.

“Imagine my shock when delivery driver after delivery driver show up last night dropping off food at my doorstep,” Stonehouse, of Chesterfield Township, said in a Facebook post.

Mason ordered five orders of jumbo shrimp, three hanis, salad, grape leaves, chicken shawarma sandwiches and several orders each of chili cheese fries and ice cream, the father said.

Mason wasn’t done even after ordering $322 of food. He also ordered $439 worth of pepperoni pizza, but the transaction was flagged and canceled by Chase Bank.

“When I put two and two together that it was Mason, I had a little talk with him about it,” Stonehouse said. “By this time he was in bed listening to the doorbell ring repeatedly and me expressing my frustration from downstairs. He had the audacity to ask me if the pepperoni pizza had come yet!!!!???? almost lost my mind.”

Stonehouse told MLive that the entire night played out like a skit from “Saturday Night Live.” He said they kept the food in refrigerators and asked neighbors to help eat some of it.

“I knew this could happen, but you just don’t think your kid is going to do something like this,” Stonehouse told MLive. “He’s definitely smart enough, I just didn’t expect it.”
