Handing your kids a smartphone or tablet may sound like a great idea to get some peace and quiet, but that’s until you realize that kids are more than capable of pressing a few buttons and committing potentially colossal blunders. In this case, Paul Stoute from Oregon handed his 14 month old daughter his iPhone, but forgot to log out of his eBay application. Sure enough, she ended up buying a 1962 Austin Healy Sprite! Luckily for Stoute, the car was in terrible condition, and only cost $225; he had been looking to buy a vintage car in the first place, which is why it was so easy for his daughter to complete the transaction. Even more fortunate for him, she didn’t press BuyItNow on the $38,000 Porsche he had also been looking at.
Yes, the car is quite the fixer upper, but the Soutes have decided to keep it anyway with the hopes of having it be road worthy by the time their 14 month old, Sorella, turns 16. And the moral of this story is… don’t ever hand kids your phone. Or at the very least, log out of eBay.
