(WFSB Connecticut)   How to get banned from a doughnut shop? Just have your 4-year-old ask a non-pregnant woman if she has a baby in her belly. Yeah, that should do it   (wfsb.com) divider line 96

Tha'ts completely unreasonable on the part of the shop. FFS the kid is 4-years old and even the woman he asked wasn't upset.

Cool I lived practically next door to this place, I don't think I ever went in.

/this is the same town that let Newtown use their school. So they're not all bad

I have a crazy, nagging, almost sixth-sense-like premonition that there's a teeny tiny bit more to this story than what's in TFA.

The kid may have been asking if she was pregnant, but it really wouldn't hurt to see if there are any missing babies in the neighborhood.
 
2014-07-23 09:40:43 PM
It's creepier when you say no, and the four-year old says "Well, would you like to have a baby in your belly?" and does that Groucho Marx eyebrow waggle.

Well, if the comments in the article are to be believed, the kid is well known around the shop for being a terror, and is disruptive and rude to everyone there, and the mother laughs it off.

I'm sure the truth is somewhere in the middle.

My four year old says stuff like this all the time.  Granted his 6 year old sister is telling him to say it but still
 
2014-07-23 10:50:10 PM
My guess was hang a donut on your penis, hold it like the steering wheel of a big rig and say 'that's a big 10-4, rubber duck. Come On.' But the pregnant thing is good too.

I see PocketNinja closed this thread up in #4.  Someone turn out the lights.
 
2014-07-23 10:56:37 PM
Well, clearly KFC OWES this woman something for someone being "rude" to her special precious little super star snowflake.

What's that? Oh this is a different special precious little super star snowflake? Well, this woman deserves some sort of financial compensation from somebody. Clearly.

Why are these people frequenting doughnut shops? Going to a doughnut shop more than once a month, let alone twice in a week, is too often.

Everyone in this article sounds fat.

That sounds about right. I'll err on the side of caution and dislike everyone involved until I learn otherwise.

This is pretty messed up. The kid was four, the mother apologized, and the woman accepted the apology. Damn donut peddling losers should have just clammed up and minded their own business.

My lady once asked a nonpregnant server at a bar we were at when she was due.

When this place goes out of business they'll be whining "big corporations push the little guys out of business." No, you're not fit as a human let alone fit to run a business.

Good lord man, lighten up. I'm not a fan of kids either, but even I agree it was wrong what they did to the boy. Don't like kids all you want, but at least be civil. Even when my wife babysat my friends annoying little hellions every day for a while i didnt come home from work and scream at them and boot them out, as much as I wanted to.

From this followup article:
http://www.wfsb.com/story/26095138/monroe-doughnut-shop-being-critic iz ed-for-banning-4-year-ol

The shop said in a statement on Wednesday "I'd like to clarify that my decision to ask this customer to take her business elsewhere was based on a whole series of incidences involving inappropriate behavior, and unfortunately, my suggestion was not met with any degree of understanding on her part."

Russ1642: When this place goes out of business they'll be whining "big corporations push the little guys out of business." No, you're not fit as a human let alone fit to run a business.


Agreed. Maybe they won't lose enough business over this one incident to shut them down, but a business that does things like this on a regular basis is sure not to last.
 
2014-07-23 11:16:53 PM
To be fair to the kid, it's really hard to tell these days.

I guess a more appropriate approach would have been "Are you going to have a baby or is that just a lot of donuts?"

Oh ffs. 4-year old acts like 4-year old, mother is embarassed and apologizes, fat lady shrugs it off. What the F*CK is going through the shop managers' heads?

I worked on Soarin over California at Disneyland once; one of our "duties" was ensuring everyone was strapped into their seats. One time this woman was having some trouble with her lap belt, and I leaned over and said, "Here, let's get your fanny pack out of the way." "No, that's my fat," the woman said. (she had kind of a little pooch that was hanging over her belt--not really fat) "OK, well, I've totally humiliated myself for today," I said, after apologizing profusely.

Thank god these crazy managers didn't work there--I'd have been banned from most of Southern California.

"Some people, unfortunately are quick to pass judgment, and therefore we will take our money and business elsewhere,"

And alert the news about their little snowflake getting banned. Don't forget that part of the "lesson": try your hardest to make yourself a martyr infront of millions of people.
 
2014-07-23 11:23:45 PM
From other articles it sounds like it wasn't the first time and when the store owner spoke to the kid's mother she blew up on him. So they got asked to take their business elsewhere and now are getting their 15 minutes out of it.
 
2014-07-23 11:24:57 PM
The comments seem to be a mix of "The kid has a history of being a little shiat and the mom doesn't care" and "OMFG someone I can hate for being mean to children ALL CHILDREN ARE PRESHUSH!"

The whole story is what's told by the mother. If someone's reaction to being kicked out of a store for what their child does is to run to the media, I'm sensing an IMMENSE level of entitlement.
 
2014-07-23 11:24:59 PM
I guess the part I'm not getting is why this is newsworthy enough for a TV station to report on it.

/it's not newsworthy, it's Farkworthy
 
2014-07-23 11:25:08 PM
And then the owner said way oh way oh waaaay oh way oh.

Awkward, indeed.  I'll admit I've had someone ask me that question (ooh, Farkers, do I sound fat?) once upon a time, and it was, yeah, let's just leave it at "awkward".  If a little kid asked me, I darn sure wouldn't take my hurt feelings out on the wretched little brat.  If said brat's mom apologized, I'd accept the apology.  And then, go off to my car and cry and soothe myself with a few chocolate-glazed chocolate doughnuts, or a sackful of Mickey D's finest, etc.

Is would be cool to have just a head of your conjoined twin growing out of your belly so that every time someone called you "fat" you could lift up your shirt and have your twin-head say (in it's shrill nasal voice) "I'm not fat, asshole, it's a medical condition!"

When I was about 3 or 4 I was a huge Sesame Street fan.  Ernie was fond of saying Bert had a banana nose.

My sister was born and my mom dragged me to the pediatrician as I was too young to be left at home. His name was Dr. Shapiro or something along those lines (oddly this was also in Connecticut).  When he entered the exam room I shouted "You have a banana nose!".

This is one of the few things I remember from 1973 because I distinctly remember how furious he was and he chewed me out.

I'm a 6'5" linebacker sized monster. I was taking a walk around Grapevine Mills (for the AC) and a small child ran into me.  I made eye contact with the mother, who was in a distinct Africa dress, and said "I try not to step on them" and she gave me a smile.

Almost makes up for the ones I step on in thrifts.
