Kid banned from doughnut shop because of question

Posted: Updated:
A 4-year-old boy in Monroe, Connecticut was banned from his favorite doughnut shop because of a question he asked.

Justin Otero, 4, is a curious guy. But curiosity got him in some hot water at the Doughnut Inn on Monroe's Main Street over the weekend. This is what he asked a woman:

"There was a customer there, and he asked her if she had a baby in her belly. She said 'No,' he said 'I'm sorry,'" Justin's mom Rebecca Denham explained.

"It looked like she was pregnant, and I asked her if she was pregnant," Justin said.

Justin's mom was mortified.

"My response was 'Oh my goodness, I'm so embarrassed, I'm so sorry,'" she said.

Rebecca Denham says thankfully, the woman shrugged it off.

"She said 'No problem, I get it all the time with the kids at nursery school,'" she explained.

But the managers at the Doughnut Inn weren't as forgiving, because when Rebecca and Justin walked in a few days later, the longtime daily customers were allegedly told to leave.

"She said 'He's not allowed in here,' and I looked around, and said, 'Him?' And she said 'Yeah, he's rude.'"

Rebecca explained the situation to Justin, and she says he gets it, sort of. But true to form, he's still asking questions.

The manager and owner at the Doughnut Inn had no comment. Now, the mother and son are planning to take their business elsewhere while using this as a learning lesson for the four-year-old.
