Toddlers Stinky Diaper Gets His Pregnant Mom Kicked Off a Bus

Stinky diaper

Handle with care

Nichole Hakimian’s 1-year-old son had an intestinal illness, according to the Associated Press (via KOMO News). So she did what any mother would do: take him to the doctor.

Actually, she got on a public bus in Seattle, but the bus wouldn’t actually take her to the doctor’s office.

Her 1-year-old had diarrhea in his diaper as soon as they got on the bus, which is when the bus driver told her the diaper was too smelly and forced them to get off the bus a half mile from the doctor’s office.

“Your baby, he smells really bad, and it’s not fair that we all have to smell that,” Hakimian, who is four-months pregnant, said the bus driver told her. “And right after that, she told me I had to get off the bus.

Hakimian told the driver she was trying to get her son to a doctor’s appointment, but it fell on deaf ears. Once she got off the bus, she found a place nearby to changedher son’s diaper, after which time she got on another bus to the clinic, which is when she learned her son had a stomach illness.

The transit agency said in a statement to KOMO: “Based on reports, this appears to be a very unique situation. Our goal is always to balance the comfort of all of our riders with providing good customer service. We are investigating the complaint, and will get a report from the driver to confirm what happened and that proper procedures were followed.”
