Many of us have been in this situation. Maybe you’re alone at a bar, enjoying a cocktail and reading a book. Or maybe you’re with a friend having a conversation. Anyway, you want your damn peace and some guy will not leave you alone. You start to feel annoyed and then uncomfortable, but you aren’t sure what to do.
One bartender has been hailed as a “hero” after he stepped in to help two women being harassed at his bar.
And his method of rescuing them is so subtle and effective.
The bartender, Max Guttierrez, handed the women a note asking them if they were okay and if they needed assistance—and the note was disguised to look like a receipt.
Twitter user Trinity Allie said she was at a bar in St. Petersburg, Florida when she started feeling uncomfortable by a man’s actions. She shared an image of the bartender, explaining how he helped her and her friend. She captioned the image: “This man was harassing me and my friend and the bartender passed this note to me acting like it was my receipt.”
“Legit the type of bartender everyone needs.”
Allie also wrote that the bartender eventually had to “literally yell at the guy” to get away from them.
In another post, Trinity shared Max’s thoughts on the situation: “I honestly don’t like yelling at customers or embarrassing people, but I find it’s one of the best ways to handle creeps.”
“Calling them out in front of people is usually enough to get them to turn tail and walk away. I just don’t need my guests feeling uncomfortable.”
Sounds like the kind of bartender we all need!
