Here's What $300 Worth Of Toys Sneakily Ordered From Amazon Looks Like
The toys may be going back but her story will last forever
Everyone loves shopping on Amazon. It’s easy, hassle-free, and if you have Prime, you get your goods faster than my mother pointing out my flaws. Typically, however, you only order items you need (and by need I mean a shower curtain featuring Jeff Goldblum riding a tiger, obviously). Unless you’re six-year-old Caitlin, then you order a whole bunch of shit real quick-like before your parents notice anything’s amiss.
Ria Diyaolu posted the hilarious story on Twitter saying, “My badass little cousin ordered $300 worth of toys w/o my aunt & uncle knowing. This is a picture of how everyone found out.” According to Buzzfeed, little Caitlin was allowed to order a Barbie off Amazon for her birthday and then asked to go back on her mom’s phone to see if it had shipped.
At some point though, Caitlin decided she’d add a couple other items to her birthday list and ordered $350 worth of toys, video games, and board games. Caitlin is me after three wines, pretty much.
“They just started unloading box after box after box,” Diyaolu said. “Her mom went on her Amazon account and saw three pages of things she had ordered. She knew exactly what she was doing when she did it. I was so surprised that a six-year-old knew how to do one-click, next-day shipping.”
Obviously, Twitter exploded with a mixture of admiration and shared experiences because Caitlin is a boss:
In Caitlin’s defense it’s super easy to just click on the “add to cart” button and equally convenient to tap the “one-day delivery” (at least that’s what I tell my husband). And if her mom had the “Buy with 1 click” enabled then really, whose fault is it?
When my son was eight, he ordered $250 worth of gems for some game I’ve chosen to forget and when we saw our bank statement he just shrugged and told me his friend told him they were free. He now has one less friend and I have my apps password protected.
Although Caitlin looks pretty smug and pleased with herself in the photo above, Diyaolu said her mom’s not letting her keep her enviable haul. Everything but the Barbie is being returned, and she’s being punished for her online shopping spree.
“She did not get grounded, but she does not have access to the internet for a month,” she said.
Hopefully she grows up to be a successful, financially independent woman who can buy all of the things on Amazon without anyone raining on her present parade.
