Doughnut shop bans 4-year-old for “rude” question

An inquisitive 4-year-old boy asked a question that got him banned from a doughnut shop in Connecticut.

“We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘he’s not allowed in here, he’s rude,'” said Rebecca Denham as she described her experience at the Doughnut Inn, in Monroe, Connecticut.

Denham said her son, Justin Otero, asked a woman at the doughnut shop if she had a baby in her belly.  When the woman said ‘no,’ Justin apologized and his mother said she was mortified.

“My response was, ‘Oh, my goodness, I’m so embarrassed, I’m so sorry,'” Denham said.

While the woman said it was ‘no problem,’ Denham said the managers at the Doughnut Inn were not as forgiving.

When they went to the store Tuesday, July 22, 2014, Denham said they were told to leave.

The manager and owner of the shop had no comment.

Denham said she and her son are planning to take their business elsewhere, while using the experience as a lesson for Justin.
