Dad shocked after young son borrows phone to order food online


A father in General Santos City was shocked when a delivery rider came knocking at their house, completely unaware that his little boy who borrowed his phone had ordered food online. 

“When he borrowed your phone and suddenly food panda came knocking at your door ?,” wrote netizen Angelito Respecia in a now-viral Facebook post. 

After recovering from his surprise over his five-year-old’s hilarious move, Respecia took photos of his son with his orders and posted them online.

He also shared the receipt showing what his son ordered which were a couple of chicken meals and drinks that amounted to P1,574.

The post has since gone viral with over 23,000 reactions and 16,000 shares.

In an interview with, Respecia said he was busy doing some chores around the house when the food delivery rider came.

“May ginagawa kasi ako malapit sa gate, maya-maya kumatok yung food panda, siguro tumatawag sa phone pero baka kina-cancel ng anak ko,” he shared.

At first, he thought it was his wife who made the order but was surprised to learn the amount he had to pay.

“Pag-open ko ng gate na-shock ako at tinanong (ko) kung magkano babayaran kasi akala ko burger steak lang ng Jollibee, akala ko umorder wife ko,” he said.

“Nung tinanong ko magkano babayaran, sobrang gulat dahil sobra isang libo raw sabi ng rider,” he added.

After the incident, Respecia said he didn’t scold his son. “Hindi naman, pinagsabihan lang.”

But his son must have realized what he has done, especially after seeing himself on national TV because of the viral post.

“He looks guilty kay nag-cover his face at ayaw niya tumingin sa TV,” the amused father said.
