ONE mom has revealed the crazy reason other parents never really wanted to befriend her at the school gate.
Making friends isn’t an easy task – and it’s especially difficult when you have the infamous resting B**ch face.
But for one mom calling Jenifursue on TikTok, the real reason was far crazier as she took to social media to share the story, Kidspot reported.
“I’m sitting at my kids’ soccer game and the two moms I’m sitting with are talking about closing the rings on their Apple Watches,” she said in the video, which has now gone viral.
“I said, ‘Oh, I never really pay attention to that because I’ve noticed how the numbers on it conflict with the Fitbit on my ankle, so I’m going with this one because it’s supposed to be more accurate.
“And they said, ‘That’s a Fitbit?'”
As it turns out, the two moms had a slightly different theory as to what the purple “device” around her ankle was — and it definitely wasn’t to count her steps.
Sharing the humiliating mistake, the mum continued, “They said, ‘We thought it was an ankle monitor. Everyone thinks it’s an ankle monitor.
“I thought my parents didn’t talk to me because of all my tattoos, but they actually thought I was grounded.”
As she talked to others, the mother learned that authorities were once involved, leading other parents to believe that she was in fact a criminal.
“I later found out there was a police officer who showed up once, he stopped at the football field and he was only there to watch his kids play but everyone thought he was there for me…such good times.”
With more than a whopping 3.1 million views, the video blew up and garnered thousands of comments.

Here, most seemed to agree that the mix-up was more than just a funny story — it also revealed a lot about people and their behavior.
“I prefer ankle monitor mom to mom who gossips about ankle monitor mom,” thought one person.
Another chuckled: “Put Fitbit on your ankle to avoid human interaction… Got it! Many Thanks!”
“How do people confuse tiny Fitbits with clunky ankle monitors?” another wondered.
“And besides, that’s 100 percent no reason not to TALK to anyone.”
Someone was dying to do some much-needed shopping: “That’s it. I get an ankle monitor. Headphones don’t work.”
