The customer, who was not pregnant, replied to young Justin Otero with a simple, “No,” then shrugged off his quick apology by saying, “No problem,” according to local CBS affiliate WFSB.
“Oh my goodness,” Justin’s mother, Rebecca Denham, said she interjected. “I’m so embarrassed. I’m so sorry.”
Managers at the Doughnut Inn in Monroe were not as understanding as the slighted woman. Denham said she and her son were denied entrance to the shop when they returned a few days later.
“We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘He’s not allowed in here. He’s rude’,” Denham told WFSB.
The mother and son left without incident, but Denham said she had to explain to the boy why they weren’t going to be able to get a doughnut at that shop ever again. Her son, she said, “sort of” understands, but he still asks a lot of questions about the situation.
“Some people, unfortunately, are quick to pass judgment, and therefore, we will take our money and business elsewhere,” Denham told WFSB, saying she plans to use the incident as a teaching moment.
