Los Angeles resident Boyce Harvey got the exact opposite of what he was expecting when he went to Burger King hoping to capitalize on the restaurant's online one-cent Whopper deal.

According to UPI, customers who bought their Whopper via the Burger King app within 600 feet of a McDonald's would be charged only $0.01 for the sandwich.

When Harvey arrived at the counter to pick up his food, however, he found that was not the case.



As he made it to the counter, the Burger King's manager told Harvey their system was not showing his order. Slightly disappointed, but hungry more than anything, he decided to order something else instead, paying with a card without worrying about the price.


It was only after Harvey had already paid that he glanced at his receipt and saw something shocking: He had been charged $1,093.91 for the meal.


Man charged for more than $1,000 for penny Whopper deal youtu.be

Harvey didn't have enough funds in his account to cover the massive charge, which resulted in an overdraft fee.


Burger King is now working with Harvey to make sure the issue gets straightened out. No burger is worth over $1,000.


People on social media are just glad this isn't happening to them!






Check out the Burger King app and head to your nearest location for a one-cent Whopper...if you dare.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
