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.

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!

But our secrets will always find a way to break free. We may not even be alive to see the outcome, which is anti-climactic, but they will be out of the dark eventually. And once we learn what some loved ones are hiding, life as we know it can be obliterated.

Some secrets may best be buried. So be really sure you want to know everything.

There are some things that society just seems to expect adult humans to be able to do, but it looks like not everyone got the memo.

Whether due to never being taught, or a simple inability to pick up the skill no matter how much you practice, there are some things that some folks just can't do.

I was a teenager before I was finally able to properly ride a bicycle, and even now I'm not a stranger to falling off. Let me tell you: flying over the handle bars of a bike hurt a heck of a lot more at 25 than it did at 15.
