US bartender Max Gutierrez is winning praise from around the world after he checked if a female guest was being bothered by a creepy guy.
Twitter user Trinity Allie took a picture, after the guy had been removed from the bar, with the note that Max had handed here.
It stated “If this guy is bothering you, put your pony tail on your other shoulder, and I will have him removed. He is giving me the creeps.”
In her tweet about the incident, Trinity wrote: “This man was harrassssing (sic) 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.”
She added: “He ended up having to literally yell at the guy he said “you need to get tf away from these girls who are clearly not interested” & the dude said “that was a little aggressive” and he said “well ur aggressively hitting on them & you need to leave”.
Max later picked up the story on Reddit and wrote: “It’s something you just pick up from mentor bartenders. Eventually you become pretty good at reading people etc. This guy was giving off weird vibes for quite a while, kept an eye on him, try to give him a chance, try to let the girls tell him no and leave it at that, but he didn’t take no for an answer and kept pestering them so eventually I kind of yelled at him and made him leave lol.
“I honestly don’t like yelling at customers or embarrassing people, but I find it’s one of the best way to handle creeps. Calling them out in front of people is usually enough to get then to turn tail and walk away. I just don’t need my guests feeling uncomfortable.”
As well as winning praise across social media with comments like “Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear Hawaiian shirts,” many people have pointed out a lot of venues do have systems in place such as asking for an Angel Shot, are asking is Angela is working tonight.
