In an exclusive interview, a father tells us that they were shocked on Friday when around 9 a.m., a Food Panda rider came to their house, delivering the food ordered by Genesis Gabriel, 5 years old.
Facebook user Angelito Respecia posted photos of his son with the delivery bill amounting to a total of ₱1,147.90.
“Nagulat dahil maaga pa, at tapos nang kumain. Akala ko umorder ang wife ko for Gab,” he said.
The bill of the delivery order shocked him even more as it reached more than one thousand pesos.
They tried canceling the order but the rider said that they cannot so, he was forced to pay the amount.
“I was in total shock when he said its more than 1k, that’s when I called my wife to check the phone. I tried to cancel but the rider said the order can’t be canceled anymore. Kaya naman kamot ulo na binayaran,” he said.
Gab started using gadgets when he was only 6 months old.
When he grew older, the father told us that Gab usually accesses YouTube, Google maps, and the Bible app. They claimed that they limit his gadget exposure.
“He’s instructed not to access Facebook, Messenger, Food Panda, which he obeys naman. But that time, mom was talking with someone, ‘di na remind,” the father said.
Respacio also shared that they can’t help but laugh over the matter.
“Mom just told him, ‘diba I told you not to access food panda?. We are all overwhelmed, ‘di naman masisi ang bata, kaya we just laugh at it,” he said.
He also mentioned that they have no intention of making the post viral, as they only want to share this experience with netizens and serve as a lesson for parents to really guide their children with the apps their children are accessing.
“Na overwhelm din ako sa experience namin, kaya pinost ko din to warn other parents para di mangyari sa kanila,” he said.
“It’s my sister who took the pictures anyway para lang sana send sa mga sisters para I report ang ginawa ng kanilang pamangkin… But I borrowed the pictures and posted it as well… Wala po intention mag viral,” he added.
As of thiswriting, the post already garnered 29k reacts and 19k shares.
