When a woman visited a dental hospital, she encountered a stranger who placed her in an uncomfortable situation. Thankfully she thought on her feet and alerted someone to assist her.
Andrea Elena didn't expect a stranger to approach her this month while waiting in line at a dental hospital in Melbourne, Australia. Her unpleasant experience led her to share a helpful tip with her online community.
The registered nurse shared a TikTok video in which she described how a man she didn't know came up to her and started chatting. She suspected that he saw she arrived in an Uber, so he offered to give her a ride home.

KEEPING HER SAFE
Thankfully, the dental staff acted quickly and discreetly to get the TikToker away from the stranger and out of harm's way. The receptionist kept Elena safe and went above and beyond to ensure the TikToker got home without any hassles.
“Reception alerted security, security escorted me to my appointment, then the dentist provided me a free lift home with a cab voucher. Security escorted me to the cab and made sure I was completely safe.”
The TikToker praised the “amazing” dental hospital for its care and genuine concern. Many netizens thanked her for the tip. Someone said: "This is actually so smart. I hope I never have to use this, but if I'm in a similar situation, I definitely will."
Another echoed this sentiment and said: "Great idea! Hope you are okay." Someone expressed that the man might really have been trying to help her out with a ride, but users quickly shut them down and said: "Yeah, ha, no."
