At some point, nearly every parent has to deal with a child blurting out a highly-inappropriate question -- like when a 4-year-old boy in a Connecticut doughnut shop recently asked a woman if she had a baby in her belly.
She wasn't pregnant.
"My response was, 'Oh my goodness, I'm so embarrassed, I'm so sorry,'" Rebecca Denham, mother of Justin Otero, told WFSB.
But Denham says what happened next went beyond mere embarrassment. When Denham returned to the Doughnut Inn in Monroe on Tuesday, she and her son got the boot.
"We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘He's not allowed in here, he's rude,'" Denham told the station.
Ironically, the woman who was questioned wasn't offended. Denham said she accepted the apology and added that she's heard it before at nursery school.
The doughnut shop declined to comment, and Denham says she will be getting her morning carbs elsewhere.
A Facebook page for the doughnut shop has been taken down since the incident, but a 2009 post from the store suggests that rudeness is perhaps not limited to curious 4-year-olds.
(WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE)
Without a Facebook page, people have taken to Yelp to express their displeasure with the shop.
