SANTA KEEPS HAT– AND JOB
The kid in the complaint–I’d sure love to meet his parents. I’m betting they’re all lovely people.
Long Island- A Santa hat-wearing school bus driver on Long
Island, N.Y., has won the right to keep wearing his festive headgear,
Kenneth Mott, who keeps a long, white beard, almost lost his job after
a parent called the bus management to complain. Mott, who has worn the
red and white hat every Christmas since he started with the Bauman
& Sons bus company five years ago, was ordered to stop wearing the
hat because a child didn’t believe in Santa Claus and was bothered by
“I said, ‘What, are you kidding me?’” Mott recalled. “I thought it was a big joke,” Newsday reported.
However, after Mott told other parents he might be fired for wearing
the hat, supervisors changed their stance and said he could continue to
wear the hat.
