Employees At The Doughnut Inn Do NOT Take Pregnancy Lightly
Get those lame “Kids say the darnedest things” jokes ready! According to WSFB in Connecticut, a 4-year-old boy was banned from a local doughnut shop after asking a woman that question I think we all dread hearing at one point or another…”Are you pregnant?” (when you’re most certainly NOT pregnant). According to news reports the mother of the boy was at first humiliated and apologized profusely. But that embarrassment turned to rage the next day when an employee from the shop allegedly told the mom that she and her son were banned from the store for being rude. Call me crazy, but I’m more than a little skeptical.
“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 â€˜No’ Otero apologized, and his mother said she was mortified.
“My response was â€˜Oh my goodness, I’m so embarrassed, I’m so sorry’,” Denham said.
While the woman said it was â€˜no problem,’ the managers at the Doughnut Inn were not as forgiving.
When Denham and her son walked in the shop Tuesday morning, they 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’,” Denham said”
If this is true, then it’s the overreaction of the year. Real talk, I’ve been asked this question, and by people much older and wiser than this 4-year-old kid. Is it fun? Hell no. Is it worth getting upset about? Nope. And from what the mom says, the lady didn’t get upset. She did what most of us have/or would do; she laughed it off and went on her merry, not-pregnant way (and probably had a drink or six to numb the pain).
If the owner of the shop had made an effort to make any kind of statement defending the shop or the employee, I would almost certainly call this a big, fat hoax, but since they didn’t, I’m guessing there’s a cranky waitress out of a job right now for bringing this place bad press.
