Posted on 07/24/2014 5:57:23 AM PDT by Enterprise
A curious 4-year-old in Monroe, Conn., is going to have to get his doughnuts elsewhere after asking a Doughnut Inn customer the wrong question. Justin Otero's mother says the boy asked the customer if she had a baby in her belly and was told no. "My response was, 'Oh my goodness, I'm so embarrassed, I'm so sorry,'" the mom tells WFSB. But she says that while the customer was forgiving, managers refused to allow her in the store with her son, saying, "'He's not allowed in here, he's rude.'" The mom says she plans to get doughnuts somewhere else with her son, who "sort of" understands what happened but is still asking questions.

Sink the Bismarcks, did she?
Heck I wouldn’t buy anything there. Guess all that store owner understands is cops.
No, its not a baby little fellow, its many visits to this stinking donut shop.
I know we are a nation of half morons, but really? These "managers" are getting dumber and dumber. Thanks Public schools!
In the Name of Tolerance, we will be intolerant!
The young boy must learn never to ask whether a woman is pregnant unless and until you see the baby coming out.
If I ever find myself in Monroe, Conn., I’ll stay away from the Doughnut Inn.
Meanwhile, if a gaggle of feral blacks tore up the place late-night-Denny’s-style, they wouldn’t say a friggin’ word.

So, you can deny someone service if you think they are “rude”, but not if you KNOW they are homosexual and they are demanding that you go against your personal conscience!
Welkom to Obama’s Amerika!
Imagine his shock if what came out was a huge doughnut.
So true. Ask about pregnancy and NO DOUGHNUT FOR YOU!
I took my 12 YO son and 3 1/2 YO grandson to Chick-Fil-A last week. While we're waiting in the drive-thru lane, my son asks me (out of the blue), "what does 'lustful' mean?" I tried to keep it simple, i.e. it's ok to look/glance at women, just don't stare.
Two seconds later, my grandson shouts out, "Oh, I get it now!"
Just say that the kid is autistic and watch the manager squirm.
I did this once, too, and I wasn’t four years old.
When I was about 8, I cringed when my five year old brother asked an elderly friend of my parents, “If you’re a lady, why do you have a beard?”
I wonder if a cop had asked her if she was pregnant if he would had been banned also.
While I think this manager of this location is an idiot, the online lynch mob is already forming on a few places I’ve looked. And as usual it is full of emotional and reactionary idiots (ironic) that are ready to run this brand into the ground, over an unfortunate, but trivial incident.
This is when I really start to despise the internet.
The lady insisted that it wasn’t the doughnuts that made her fat, it was the jelly bellys.
Last time I saw my friend’s wife, I came *this* close to congratulating her on being pregnant again. Suffice it to say, I’m glad I thought about it before saying it!
It’s not a baby, darnit. It’s a fetus.
“No Hun, That’s Where Donuts Go To Die.”
Right ON! Trumpet that comment anywhere you get the chance!
That would have been a great idea!
Only safe response for a male in today's workforce.
Last week, I had a vendor visit, young attractive female with major cleavage issues and I couldn't look her in the eye for obvious reasons. She asked me if something was wrong and I told her that I'd worked in Japan for 14 years (which is true) where eye contact was considered impolite.
It was the best I could come up with. How was I supposed to tell her the truth?
I couldn't be like the little boy who told the woman at the beach "Lady, if you're just going to drown those pups, I wouldn't mind having the one with the brown nose."
I’m the one in the family who is most likely to say rude and inappropriate things. Years ago I was driving my young boys to a game, and we saw an extremely obese woman sitting on a bench at a bus stop. My kids looked at me but they were afraid to laugh or say anything. I told them it was a good thing she was sitting in the middle, because if she sat at the end she would tip the bench over. They still remember that!
NO SOUP FOR YOU!!
Eye contact? HA HA!!
Donut Nazi! No donuts for you!
Made a mistake and asked when a lady was due. D’oh! She was not amused to say the least.
To forbid this naive 4 yr old from entering this store ever again is ridiculous.
That’s what folks are responding to.
Surprised you don’t get it.
No doughnuts for YOU!
LOL - hey, it happens.
Ok? Well then call for the manager to be fired.
Trying to take down the whole company, as if everyone there decided that, is irresponsible.
One of my sons worked as a server. He came to dislike dealing with a certain ethnic group. While not all persons of this group were jerks, a number of them “behaved stupidly.” And management cowered before them.
He’s not “rude’ he’s “4 years old”
Kinda like Jeffery....
Forward! ;-) In order to be tolerant and supportive of ... um ... "large people" we shall be intolerant of 4 year olds who ask frank and sometimes inappropriate questions. Hint to anyone who has never had a 4 year old - that just kind of goes with the territory. You can't sit down and go over every conceivable situation and question that might arise with a child before taking them out in public. This is how they learn. It is messy, funny, and sometimes embarrassing.
Maybe if the boy claimed he was transgendered or self-identified as female they would (re)welcome him with open arms? But if he pretended to shoot through the hole in a donut they'd probably ban him again.
In all seriousness though, I 100% support the right for businesses to refuse to serve anyone. (hint, that includes people who may offend or go against the religious sensibilities/beliefs of the business owner) In this case it seems like an enormous overreaction to ban the 4 year old. So while it is their right to refuse service, it is a stupid call on the manager's part.
Did he say it in Vietnamese?
WOMAN: Sir! My eyes are up here.
HOMER SIMPSON: I’ve made my choice.
When I was about 6, I told my mom that my little brother was a son of a b!&ch
That did not end well.
I saw this on the news last night; you'd probably be wise to do so. The place looks like a pit. The boy and his mom would be better off at the local Dunkin' Donuts.
My daughter at 5, saw a man with an eyepatch in a restaurant and screamed out, “Look, a pirate”.

Michele:What are you picking on us for anyway? We’re not the ones who got fat.
Christie: We’re pregnant, you half-wit.
Michele: Yeah, well...I hope your babies look like monkeys.
