Stinky diaper gets mom, baby booted off bus!

A mom in Seattle, Washington, says she was kicked off a public bus because of her son’s stinky diaper.

Nichole Hakimian told affiliate KOMO she was on her way to a medical clinic with her 1-year-old when the bus driver told her the smell was too much to handle.

“He had just pooped in his diaper as soon as I got on [the bus], because he was having diarrhea,” Hakimian told KOMO. “And right after that, she told me I had to get off the bus.” The driver stopped the bus and let her out about a half-mile from the clinic.

A spokesman for the bus company said in a statement to KOMO: “We are investigating the complaint and will get a report from the driver to confirm what happened and that proper procedures were followed.”

At the clinic, Hakimian said she learned her toddler was suffering from stomach flu.
