A curious kid has reportedly been banned from a Monroe, Conn., donut shop because he asked another customer whether she was pregnant. She was not. She was just in a donut shop.
Four-year-old Justin Otero's mother, Rebecca Denham, told WFSB she was "mortified" at Justin's question and apologized immediately on her son's behalf.
"My response was 'Oh my goodness, I'm so embarrassed, I'm so sorry,'" Denham said.
The woman took it all in stride and accepted the apology, but the managers of the Doughnut Inn don't forgive so easily. When Denham and Justin showed up the next morning, they were told the little boy wasn't welcome.
"She said, 'he's not allowed in here,' and I looked around, and said, 'him?' and she said 'yeah, he's rude'," Denham told WFSB.
Denham says she tried to explain the situation to Justin and feels he "sort of" understands what happened. For now, she says they'll be "taking their business elsewhere," as if Doughnut Inn gave them a choice.
The manager and owner of the donut shop declined to comment.
