Doughnut Shop Bans “Rude” 4-Year-Old Boy For Asking Woman If She Was Pregnant

Little kids ask questions. Unfortunately, they don’t always realize that their questions may be insensitive or inappropriate. Lots of adults let kids slide for their occasionally tactless queries, but the mother of one 4-year-old says a local doughnut shop is taking a hard line regarding her son’s behavior.

The mom tells WFSB-TV that she and her son had recently visited a doughnut shop in Monroe, CT, when her youngster asked a woman in the store if she “had a baby in her belly.”

She didn’t.

According to the mom, who was embarrassed by her son’s question and apologized, the woman took the query well, telling her it was “no problem,” and that she gets asked that all the time by young children.

But when the mom and son pairing returned earlier this week, they did not receive a warm welcome from store management.

“We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘he’s not allowed in here, he’s rude’,” claims the mom.

WFSB says no one at the shop is commenting on the incident, but the mom is planning on taking her business elsewhere.

“Some people, unfortunately are quick to pass judgment,” she explains.
