Toddler Buys Earthmover in Auction

That's the headline. The moral of the story: don't fall asleep while you've got an auction site open on your computer, or you may wake up to find your toddler has made one very large purpose- a $12,300 purchase.

It's true and it happened to one mother in New Zealand. She was bidding on toys online when she took a nap, and her toddler then went and purchased a real digger, not a toy.

She found out when she received an email telling her she'd really like the digger. Yes, she got reimbursed the money.

Any computer mishaps happen to you?
