Every parent's worst nightmare is their child wandering off with a stranger.
One mother was given the fright of her life when this nightmare become a reality, and she was told her daughter was leaving school with a "strange man".
The mum, who is known for posting funny parenting videos to TikTok, recounted the moment she was told by the school three was a stranger collecting her little girl.
"So I received a call from my daughter's school saying that she had been leaving the school with a strange man every day — and it was not her dad," she said.
"I was trembling. My heart was beating outside of my chest. I've always made it a point to tell the school that if my daughter leaves with someone outside of ourselves, that they need to contact us immediately.
"They described this man. They said he was tall, stubby, looked like he was out of shape, his hair was fragile, he had a light moustache."
Pausing briefly, she said she asked the school if they had any proof.
"They sent over a photo," she said. "My heart started beating. I started whimpering. I was shocked."
Looking like she was going to cry, the mum revealed the mysterious man who was picking up her daughter from school.
"It was ME without my wig!" she exclaimed. "It was ME y'all!"
Fellow TikTokers loved the twist ending, many saying the clever mum well and truly tricked them.
"I went from concerned to dead in 10 seconds," one person wrote.
"I keep coming back to this. What a good laugh," agreed another.
"Girl I was terrified for you!!!" laughed another.
"This is hilarious," declared another. "But I feel bad that they described you like that."
