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 […]
