SEATTLE (AP) – Seattle’s Metro Transit has apologized but says it won’t discipline the driver who asked a woman with a baby to get off a bus because of a stinky diaper.
Metro told KOMO (
http://is.gd/ywJ5LB) the driver did not violate policy when she acted for the comfort of other passengers.
An apology is not enough for the mother, Nichole Hakimian (hah-KIM’-ee-an), who threatens to sue.
She was taking her 1-year-old son to a clinic Tuesday when his diarrhea became an odor issue. She says the driver insisted she exit.
Hakimian says she found a place to change the baby and caught another bus to the clinic where her son was diagnosed with a stomach bug.
Metro says the driver is a nine-year employee with an excellent record.
