'It was ME': Woman's story about 'strange man' picking her daughter up from school has TikTok cracking up
A parent was scared out of her life when school officials informed her that a stranger picks her child up from school. On TikTok, Shanta Quilette, who goes by the handle @heyshantaq, opened up about the incident, claiming that it sent shivers down her spine.
The school gave her a description of the person, and it ended up being nothing more than a funny anecdote. In the video, she claimed that the school said her daughter 'had been leaving the school with a strange man every day—and it was not her dad." Like any concerned parent, she became frantic. "I was trembling. My heart was beating outside of my chest," she said.
Quilette had previously instructed the school to notify her if something similar occurred. She added, "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." She spoke with the school administration to see if they knew who it was in order to find out. They told her about the stranger.
