Every single one of us once had the desire to steal our parents car and head straight to McDonalds for some tasty goodness when we were kids. The only problem was we didn’t have the balls or the know-how to pull off such a Mission: Impossible-type of heist. That’s where this 8-year-old boy comes in and puts all of our childhood shenanigans to shame.
This young boy from Ohio was Jonesing for a cheeseburger real bad, so he grabbed his four-year-old sister and took his father’s fan from his home to a McDonalds in East Palestine over the weekend. This little dude is making pure power moves and is obviously a future Fortune 500 CEO.
The Weirton Daily Times reports that the kid’s parents were sleeping at the time (classic old people).
Naturally, McDonalds employees thought it was a joke at first when this 8-year-old kid rolled up to the Drive-Through window after ordering a cheeseburger. The cutest thing about his secret mission: he planned to use his piggy bank money to buy the food. What a baller.
East Palestine Patrolman Jacob Koehler responded to the McDonalds call. He said, “The workers thought that the parents were in the back, but obviously they weren’t.”
“I think there is a good teaching point here. With the way technology is anymore kids will learn how to do anything and everything.
“This kid learned how to drive on YouTube. He probably looked it up for five minutes and then said it was time to go.”
Koehler told the paper that witnesses said the boy obeyed all traffic laws (every criminal mastermind knows you don’t blow the heist of the century because you forgot to use your signal).
“He didn’t hit a single thing on the way there. It was unreal.”
The boy started crying when he was told that he had done something wrong. Cheer up, little buddy. You’re easily the coolest kid in the entire world right now. How good are those fries, dude?
The children got to eat their precious McDonalds while they waited for their parents and grandparents.
No charges have been filed.
