Happy Mother’s Day! – 4-year-old hacks mom’s Amazon Prime account and orders 51 boxes of SpongeBob SquarePants Popsicles Martha Shade, via CNN
(CNN)Four-year-old Noah Ruiz loves two things: Popsicles and SpongeBob.
And when he discovered both objects of his passion had been combined into one fruity and delicious icy treat, he did the only sensible thing: he ordered them.
To be exact, he ordered 918 of them. From his mom’s Amazon Prime account. Without telling her.
Noah’s mom, Jennifer Bryant, had let Noah use her laptop for remote learning when his iPad wasn’t working. She was busy in another room when Noah evidently navigated his way into her Amazon Prime account, which she shares with her sister who lives nearby.
In retrospect, there were signs something was about to happen.
“He kept saying the number ’51.’ ” she said. “All day he was walking around saying ’51, 51.'”
But Jennifer didn’t think much of it because sometimes he repeats things: “I really wasn’t surprised because he was diagnosed with ASD (autism spectrum disorder).”
A phone call from an exasperated sister
Noah’s aunt was not expecting to receive three 70-pound boxes of SpongeBob SquarePants Popsicles.
Then she got the call.
“She was fussing and cussing, and she said to me, ‘You know, you really need to stop ordering all this stuff.'”
Three huge boxes, each weighing 70 pounds and requiring immediate freezing, had arrived at her sister’s house.
“I said ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.'”
That’s when Jennifer discovered she was the proud owner of 51 cases of SpongeBob Popsicles, costing just under $2,619.
Suddenly, Noah’s repeated mantra of “51, 51…” started to make sense.
