A Texas mom left her phone unlocked. Then her 2-year-old son ordered 31 cheeseburgers


On Monday, Kelsey Golden, who works in media marketing for a school, was working on the school’s annual yearbook on her computer at home. She was transferring photos from her phone to her computer when her 2-year-old son Barrett started “yanking” on her phone, she told CNN.

Golden explained that her son loves the camera feature on her phone. “He likes to look at his reflection,” she said, instead of playing games or doing other activities on her phone.

But this time, Barrett didn’t just stare at his reflection. “He starts pressing the screen, swinging it around like his arm is a roller coaster,” she said.

Then, Golden received a notification that her DoorDash order was taking longer than usual — which was unusual, because although she sometimes ordered DoorDash for her two older children’s lunches at school, that morning she had packed their lunches.

A work colleague furthered the confusion when she told Golden that her children were indeed eating their packed lunches at school — no DoorDash in sight.

“Right as she said that, I was outside playing with Barrett on the porch,” she said. “A car pulls in and I was like, ‘what’? so I went over to it, and she gets out a giant McDonald’s bag and is like ’31 cheeseburgers?'”

Are Japanese toddlers as independent as Netflix's Old Enough portrays them?

At first, Golden said, she thought the delivery driver was at the wrong house. “Then it dawned on me that Barrett was playing with my phone,” she said. “I went back and looked at my phone and an order was placed at that time that he was playing with my phone.”

“I thought, oh my gosh, he really did this.”

The accidental order was even more out of place because “no one in our family likes cheeseburgers,” said Golden. So she posted on her town Facebook page offering free cheeseburgers.

“It kind of blew up from there.”

“One woman came by, she was pregnant and wanted six of them,” she said. “No judgment.” She added that she also donated some cheeseburgers to neighbors.

The total order came out to $91.70, in part because Barret left a “really generous” 25 percent tip, said Golden.

She said she had “no idea” that the mishap would go viral. On Friday, she and Barrett were invited to a meet-up with McDonald’s staff, where her son was able to meet the company mascots, take photos, and enjoy some chicken nuggets.

Golden hopes that her son’s “fluke” order helps brighten people’s days.

“I hope it spreads a little humor in a sad dark world,” she said.

This 33-year-old left the U.S. for Bali – now he lives on $74 a day


Olumide Gbenro has never called one place “home” for long. 

The 33-year-old entrepreneur grew up in Nigeria until he turned six, when his minister parents decided to move to London. Then, seven years later, the Gbenros were granted visas to immigrate to the United States through the country’s green card lottery — so Olumide, his parents and two siblings relocated to Columbus, Ohio. 

“Being a person of color, I felt that there were certain times in my life where I just didn’t feel valued as a human being,” Gbenro tells CNBC Make It of growing up Black in the Midwest. “I always felt left out.” 

Gbenro wanted a creative life: one that was filled with travel, art and opportunities to meet people from all corners of the world. But his parents wanted him to become a doctor, lawyer or engineer.

In 2016, he finished his double master’s degree in epidemiology and behavioral science at San Diego State University. He found himself caught between two paths: go to medical school and become a doctor or travel the world. 

“All of my life, I just followed the rules, whether it was from my parents, religion or society,” he says. “But deep down I knew that if I took the position in the PhD program, I could never go back, I could never travel abroad … I’d be stuck to a lab, so I decided to say ‘no.'” 

Gbenro packed up all of his belongings and left the United States to see the world – but it would take him years to land in Bali, his forever home. 

Becoming a digital nomad 

Gbenro’s first stop was Berlin, where he had friends from graduate school. He spent three months there on a tourist visa bouncing between friends’ couches and hostels. 

When Gbenro left the United States, he had “almost zero savings and no plan.” He quickly grew his Instagram following posting travel tips, dance videos and other content. Gbenro decided to monetize his hobby: He would message other creators and businesses on Instagram and offered to help them improve their social media strategy for a fee (often $250).

Starting a remote business was “really tough in the beginning,” Gbenro recalls, but soon he had a full roster of clients and enough income to make social media his full-time job. He took an online course in social media marketing that helped him structure his business, and an old friend in San Diego referred him to his first two clients.

Once his visa expired, he traveled to Mexico for four months, then went back to San Diego. “But I realized I wasn’t happy living in America still,” he says. “There was something about living in America that made me feel like I wasn’t growing.”

He continues: “As a Black man, there was a psychological trauma and pressure I felt living there, especially as an immigrant too, feeling like I didn’t fit in.”

Gbenro officially launched his social media marketing business, Olumide Gbenro PR & Brand Monetization, in 2018 while he was still in San Diego, collaborating with celebrity chefs, real estate agents, business coaches and more. Though he was thriving at work, Gbenro still craved a change. 

One afternoon he was scrolling through Instagram and stopped on a photo of one of his friends who was traveling in Bali. She was relaxing on a beach, surrounded by lush palm trees, with a coconut in her hand. 

‘It looked like the perfect place to live,” Gbenro says. “The difference between Bali and every other city I researched is that it seemed very peaceful – all the locals, in photos online, looked genuinely happy and like they spend a lot of time in nature.”

In 2019, he found an apartment in Bali through an acquaintance on Instagram, booked a one-way plane ticket and never looked back. 

‘I’m living a life of luxury’ 

Since moving to Bali, Gbenro has been able to spend more on travel, dining and other hobbies as well as boost his savings. “I’m never worried about money anymore because Bali has a much lower cost of living than the U.S.,” he says. 

For his first nine months in Bali, Gbenro used a tourist visa. Indonesia offers tourists a single entry visa that is valid for 60 days and allows for four 30-day extensions, adding up to a six month stay. Gbenro would fly to Singapore or Malaysia for brief trips once his visa expired, then renew it upon his return.

Soon after he switched to an investor visa, which requires proof that you are contributing to the local economy. Gbenro expanded his marketing business to help people advertise their properties in Indonesia to qualify for the visa, which he renews with the local government every two years.

As an entrepreneur, Gbenro earns about $140,000 per year. In addition to his consulting business, Gbenro hosts several conferences for digital nomads, including the Digital Nomads Summit, which attracts thousands of people and will be hosted in Bali this September. 

His biggest expenses are his rent and utilities, which together are about $1,010 each month. Gbenro lives in a one-bedroom apartment in a building with a private gym, pool and restaurant downstairs. 

He spends about $600 each month on takeout and eating out, often ordering food from local restaurants on a popular app called Gojek. Gbenro’s other larger expenses include health insurance, transportation (he rents a motorbike) and travel. 

Gbenro likes to travel at least once each month and often ventures to Uluwatu, a small region on Bali’s southwestern tip famous for its surfing.

“I’m probably spending about the same amount of money I would each month if I was living in San Diego, but my quality of living is much higher,” he says. “I’m living a life of luxury.” 

Here’s a monthly breakdown of Gbenro’s spending (as of January 2022):

Olumide Gbenro’s average monthly spending

Gene Woo Kim | CNBC Make It

Rent and utilities: $1,010

Food: $600

Transportation: $98

Phone: $28

Health insurance: $137

Travel: $300

Laundry: $60

Total: $2,233

Falling in love with Bali 

Gbenro says the most challenging part of building his new life in Bali was battling loneliness. “I was going to the beach every day, drinking coconuts and seeing beautiful sunsets, but I lived by myself and didn’t have friends here,” he explains. 

Once he started visiting co-working spaces in Bali and attending in-person networking events, Gbenro says it became much easier to build close friendships with other expats and locals. He knows conversational Indonesian, but says a lot of people living in Bali also speak English. 

“I’ve really been loved and welcomed by the Balinese,” he says. “Everyone’s always smiling – there’s a really genuine, heart-centered tone here that you can’t get anywhere else.”

When can big rigs travel in the left lane in Florida? Trooper Steve explains


News 6 traffic safety expert Trooper Steve Montiero answers viewer questions and shares tips about the rules of the road, helping Central Florida residents become better drivers by being better educated.

Trooper Steve was asked, “Are tractor-trailer cabs allowed to drive in the left lane if they remove their trailer and not hauling anything?”

To answer this question, Trooper Steve takes a look at the bigger picture of semi-trucks traveling on Florida’s roads.

“I totally understand why this question is being asked but I also believe it’s because of confusion of certain signs that we see out on the roads,” Montiero said. “When traveling on major multilane highways throughout the state of Florida, there are areas that restrict trucks from driving in the left lane, but these restrictions are only located in those areas for those trucks. In all other spots, these vehicles are treated the exact same as yours and mine.”

Trooper Steve added, “Whether the truck has a trailer attached to it as long as there are no signs restricting that specific vehicle in the left lane then that vehicle would be allowed to travel in the left lane.”

Montiero did point out that all drivers should avoid abusing the left lane.

“Now, I will add that anyone, no matter what you’re driving, should avoid being in the left lane as often as possible. The left lane is designed for passing slower traffic and by staying in the right lane you leave an open for other vehicles and of course emergency travel,” he said. “So, whether that truck has a trailer attached to it or not as long as there is no sign restricting them from the left lane they would be allowed to travel as they choose.”

Golf tip of the week: Elevate the left shoulder to initiate the downswing | News, Sports, Jobs



Look at a golf magazine and compare the left shoulder position at setup and at impact.

The left shoulder should be higher at impact than it was at the address position, allowing the left shoulder to initiate the downswing forces the left hip to move out of the way automatically.

The shoulders are the primary sights on the body and determine the direction the ball will travel. The body should return to the address position in motion at impact, with the left shoulder higher and the hips more open, creating a free swing.

The shoulders move around the spine as a wheel moves around an axle.

There are two choices in which to move the wheel: Force the right shoulder downward or move the left shoulder upward. The latter works best.

For most golfers pushing the right shoulder downward will create a fat shot.

Don’t forget to enjoy this great game called golf.

Left tackle Cameron Erving won’t travel to New York


CHARLOTTE — The Panthers are going to have another change on the offensive line Sunday.

The team announced that left tackle Cameron Erving would not travel with the team, and has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game against the Giants.

Erving was added to the injury report Thursday with a neck issue, and missed Friday’s walk-through with an illness.

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said Friday he was prepared to start rookie Brady Christensen at left tackle if Erving was unable to go.

Christensen, their third-round pick from BYU, started at right tackle against the Eagles two weeks ago.

The Panthers are also expected to start Michael Jordan at left guard, after he replaced Dennis Daley in the lineup last week.

Bishop’s Stortford farmer left with fly-tipping clear up costs for illegal waste dumped on his land


A Herts farmer says the level of fly-tipping he faces is “beyond frustrating,” adding that it can sometimes cost thousands of pounds to remove.

Tom Streeter from Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire, has faced plenty of recent fly-tipping on his land, costing him both time and money to sort out.

Latest data shows there were 17,963 incidents of fly-tipping recorded across the county in the 2020/21 financial year, up more than 50 per cent from the previous 12 months.

Estimates also suggest the cost of cleaning up the waste and investigating the fly-tips was a staggering £1.57m.

Increases in fly-tipping, meanwhile, were recorded in every one of the county’s 10 districts and boroughs – varying between 5.9 per cent to 184.5 per cent during that time.

Tom says the situation is a constant cause of concern and impacts him in numerous ways.

“The one that probably hits hardest is the financial one, in that often what’s tipped on the farm we then have dispose of ourselves through our own funding,” he said.

“It could be a skip load, it could be a container or large lorry load, which could cost anything from a few hundred pounds up to thousands of pounds.

“Often what goes hand-in-hand with it is criminal damage because they’ll drive out into the middle of one of our fields, or break through gates, cut through padlocks and so there’s that burden that comes with it too.”

The farmer added that the fly-tips that hit him most are the ones where kitchen waste is dumped on the land , such as cookers, fridges and freezers, as well as building waste.

His message to anyone thinking of fly-tipping is simple: don’t do it.

He’s also calling for more stringent measures to help people like him to protect their land.

“Often those that do this nefarious sort of activity, they’re not going to be stopped easily, but if they have no waste to fly-tip then it dries up in a sense,” added.

“So it needs to go one step back to the homeowner and the like who, for just a cheap disposal is paying someone to take away [their rubbish], that they should be held to account more if it can be traced back to them.

“Or they could do their bit by saying, ‘Yes, please take my waste, but can I see your waste licence, or can I have some form of identification that says this is going to a legitimate place and not just to be tipped into someone’s field?'”

One of those who is helping clear such waste is East Herts District Council’s Environment Enforcement Officer Sam Wood, someone who is constantly being called out to track down wrongdoers.

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of items and, if your your waste is fly-tipped by you or by someone else on your behalf, you could face a £400 fixed penalty notice or an unlimited fine.

The county-wide SCRAP campaign has been launched to make people of aware of the steps they need to be taking. The SCRAP acronym stands for:

  • Suspect all waste carriers. Don’t let them take your rubbish until they provide proof of registration. Note their vehicle’s registration plate.
  • Check that a waste carrier is registered on the Environment Agency’s website.
  • Refuse any unexpected offers to have your rubbish taken away.
  • Ask how your rubbish will be disposed of – seek evidence of this.
  • Paperwork must be obtained: a proper invoice, waste transfer note or receipt, including a description of the waste being removed and the waste carrier’s contact details.

“In East Herts, we have the largest rural community out of the whole of Hertfordshire,” added Sam, “so we have more farms than probably any other district council.

“Unfortunately, with farms comes lots of country lanes, hidden black spots, hideaways, where waste comes up from London, Essex and other districts into our area and they can quite easily dump it on one or many of the fields.”

Sam added that fly-tipping has also increased in some areas during the Covid-19 pandemic and said some people who’ve been furloughed have turned to fly-tipping for some extra cash.

She reminded people to be wary of who they’re getting in to dispose of their waste and said: “Generally, if you’re paying below £150-200 for having your waste removed ask yourself the question: ‘Is it going somewhere legal?’

“If they turn up in a heavy-weight tipper, the cost of diesel, the cost of labour, travelling away and then paying what it is per tonnage at a legal waste site, the money you pay them isn’t going to cover that cost.”

In August 2018, David Lloyd, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Hertfordshire, introduced the Fly-Tipping on Private Land Fund using income from seizures under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).

It’s used to clear and dispose of waste left on private land, as well as providing advice and help to improve security.

Given the success of the pilot, it was extended for a further year with the PCC committing a further £20,000 in 2021/22 and extending the eligibility criteria to include unregistered land.

Louisiana offering travel trailers and other housing to those left without a home after Hurricane Ida


By Rebekah Riess and Kelly McCleary, CNN

Louisiana is launching a sheltering program for those “currently living in unsafe or unsanitary” conditions due to damage from Hurricane Ida, which slammed into the Gulf Coast as a Category 4 storm more than five weeks ago, officials said Monday.

The Hurricane Ida Sheltering Program will provide temporary housing to those in parishes heavily impacted by Ida where other shelter options are unavailable, according to a news release from Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office, which called some storm survivors’ living conditions unacceptable.

The housing options may include hotels, base camps, crew barges, or recreational vehicles, including travel trailers that typically hitch to an existing vehicle, the release said. The “non-congregate” options are intended to help reduce the risk of Covid-19 while allowing individuals and families to live as close as possible as they repair their damaged homes, according to the governor’s office.

Hurricane Ida roared ashore near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, on August 29, packing powerful sustained winds of up to 150 mph. Hurricane-force winds extended 50 miles from Ida’s center.

The storm devastated power infrastructure, leaving some residents without electricity for weeks, and sent a life-threatening storm surge through the low-lying region.

At least 22 people died in Louisiana and Mississippi as a result of Ida’s wrath, officials have said.

Many parishes along the coast reported overwhelming devastation.

In Lafourche Parish, which includes Port Fourchon, about 14,000 were left without homes following the storm, which damaged or destroyed 75% of the structures there, parish President Archie Chaisson said last month.

In nearby Grand Isle, about 40-50% of homes were wiped away, according to Bryan Adams, director of Jefferson Parish Fire Services.

“I’ve never seen it look like this. It’s decimated,” Adams said after surveying the storm’s ruins.

The state sheltering program is designed to “complement, not replace,” other housing options such as travel trailers, hotels and mobile homes offered through FEMA, the governor’s office said, noting that while the program is funded through FEMA, it is run entirely by the state.

“Housing is the biggest challenge facing those affected by this devastating storm, and our state-run sheltering program is a safe, creative, temporary solution to get more people closer to their homes as they rebuild,” Edwards said in the news release. “I’m grateful to FEMA’s flexibility in working with us to purchase travel trailers as an interim solution to help survivors while other efforts, including work by FEMA, are ongoing.”

The announcement comes after FEMA said last week that it had no timeline to deliver trailers to Ida’s hardest-hit areas.

“FEMA officials are working with parish governments to determine how many mobile homes will be sent to Terrebonne and Lafourche. No timeline has been set,” FEMA Assistant External Affairs Officer Debra Young said in an email Thursday.

FEMA has provided $670 million in grants directly to survivors in Louisiana for needs not covered by insurance, Young said. FEMA is also providing money to help with short-term housing needs through measures like rental assistance to help people relocate and home repairs. Young said FEMA has paid for hotel stays for more than 3,200 households specifically in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes.

According to Young, the US Small Business Administration has approved $251.5 million in home disaster loans to 5,435 homeowners and renters.

“In Terrebonne Parish, FEMA has provided more than $67.2 million in grants to 29,293 homeowners and renters. In Lafourche Parish, FEMA has provided more than $52.5 million in grants to 24,077 homeowners and renters,” she said.

Those whose homes were destroyed or are currently unlivable can begin registering for the state program by visiting www.Idashelteringla.com or calling (844) 268-0301, the governor’s office said.

Disney World opened 50 years ago; these workers never left


ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Applying to be one of the first workers at Walt Disney World, high school graduate George Kalogridis made a split-second decision that set the course for his life: he picked a room where prospective hotel workers were being hired.

Chuck Milam got a tip about a job opening from a transplanted Disney executive whose new house he was landscaping. Earliene Anderson jumped at the chance to take a job at the new Disney theme park in Florida, having fallen in love with the beauty of Disneyland in California during a trip two years earlier.

At the time, the three were among the 6,000 employees who opened the Magic Kingdom at Disney World to the public for the first time on Oct. 1, 1971. Now, they are among two dozen from that first day still employed at the theme park resort as it celebrates its 50th anniversary on Friday.

Over those decades, Disney World added three more theme parks, two dozen additional hotels and grew to have a workforce of 77,000 employees as it helped Orlando become the most visited place in the U.S. before the pandemic.

What never changed was the original employees’ devotion to the pixie dust, the dream machine created by Walt Disney and his Imagineers.

“Disney has been my love, and it still is,” Anderson said recently before starting her shift in merchandising at a Magic Kingdom hotel. “I love Disney.”

The employees who make up the 50-year club say the theme park resort has allowed them to grow their careers and try on new hats. Kalogridis worked his way up to be president of Walt Disney World and Disneyland in California. Milam went from a warehouse worker to a buyer of spare parts for rides and shows.

Forrest Bahruth joined the workforce at Disney World in January 1971 as a show director, responsible for staging and choreographing parades and shows. He was also given the opportunity to help open other Disney theme parks around the world over the past five decades.

“There are people all over the world who get up to go work. They’re unhappy about it. They don’t really like their jobs,” Bahruth said. “As you can tell from us, there’s an enthusiasm. We are privileged to be at a place where we love what we do.”

There was no guarantee that Disney World was going to be a success 50 years ago. Walt Disney, the pioneering animator and entrepreneur whose name graces the Florida resort, had died in 1966, just a year after announcing plans for “the East Coast Disneyland.” The company had quietly acquired 27,000 acres (11,000 hectares) of scrub land outside Orlando for around $5 million via secret land purchases using fake names and shell companies.

The job of shepherding the project to Opening Day fell to his brother, Roy Disney, who with other company officials convinced the Florida Legislature to create a quasi-governmental agency that would allow Disney to self-govern when it came to matters of infrastructure and planning. Roy died almost three months after Disney World opened.

Just weeks before opening, construction at the Magic Kingdom was controlled chaos, and it seemed impossible that it would all come together in time.

“It was like an army of ants. Everything was under construction. Interiors were still being put in. Roofing was still being put on top,” Bahruth said. “There was painting, landscaping. Things were arriving by the moment. It was like trucks going everywhere.”

Bahruth rehearsed performers through parade choreography down Main Street, which cut through the center of the Magic Kingdom and resembled a turn-of-the-century small town from Walt Disney’s childhood. Even though he was a busser, Kalogridis was drafted into laying down sod outside the hotel he was working in, hours before Disney World’s grand opening.

Two things have stuck in the memories of the longtime employees from that opening day. The first was the photo. It was an image of thousands of Disney World workers standing in front of the iconic Cinderella’s Castle with Mickey Mouse and other costumed characters holding hands in front. Two weeks later, it was featured on the cover of Life magazine.

“They brought all the characters up, staged them first, and then they tried to keep all the different workers together based on the color of their costumes,” Milam said. “If you were from Fantasyland and in yellow, you would go over there.”

The second was the parade. It featured a 1,076-member marching band conducted by Meredith Wilson, the composer of the Broadway show, “The Music Man.” There were 4,000 Disney entertainers marching through the theme park, a mass choir and trumpeters from the United States Army Band. Hundreds of white doves were released into the air, and less environmentally friendly, so were thousands of multi-colored balloons.

“It was the biggest thing I had ever seen,” Bahruth said.

Only around 10,000 visitors showed up on that first day — which at today’s much larger Walt Disney World would represent about 90 minutes’ worth of visitors entering. It wouldn’t be until Thanksgiving 1971, almost three months later, when Disney executives had an answer about whether their new resort would be a success; that’s when cars trying to get into the Magic Kingdom stretched for miles down the interstate.

“It was very clear after that first Thanksgiving, that the public definitely liked what we were doing,” Kalogridis said. “That first Thanksgiving, that was the moment.”
