    Hi! Good evening! I would like to escalate a concern re your conductor for bus number 81019. I believe the name of the conductor is Michael Dole. I rode at Boni station and it was only when i entered that i noticed that I will be standing. I called out the attention of the conductor that i would just go down as i cant last standing because i am already 8 mos pregnant. But he disrespectfully answered that "mam hindi pede masikip na ang bus dika na makakalabas" i understand that, but i would appreciate if he would at least asked other passengers to give me a seat as i am pregnant otherwise he should have just let me go down. Please do something about this as that was not right
