But now you get screamed at for an innocent error. (This is why you should never talk to anybody.)
…one local inquisitive 4-year-old boy asked a question that got him banned from a Monroe doughnut shop.
“We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘he’s not allowed in here, he’s rude’,” said Rebecca Denham as she described her experience at the Doughnut Inn on Tuesday morning.

West Hartford Police Officer Peter Senick was assigned to the DWI patrol when he saw a car go from Park Road onto an off-ramp on around 2 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22, driving the wrong way despite the “Wrong Way” signs, police said.
The driver, identified as Robert Howe, 43, of Springfield, Mass., told Officer Senick that he was not from the area and was following the GPS on his phone, which led him to drive the wrong way on I-84, police said.
Howe’s blood alcohol concentration was found to be .101 and .095, according to police.

“Once the grand great-grandmother sees the boy and removes his hat, she realizes it’s not her great-grandson and calls the school to say the great-grandfather has taken the wrong kid,” Stone said during an emergency Board of Education meeting held in Sterling on Tuesday night.
Not the first time this has happened.
