A bartender has been hailed as a hero after helped 2 girls that were being harassed at a bar…
Trinity Allie and her friend were sat at a bar in St Petersburg, Florida when they were approached by a “creepy” man who just wouldn’t leave them alone.
Even when the girls told him that they weren’t interested, he continued with his aggressive approach but not for too long once the bartender realized what was going on.
Sporting a colorful Hawaiin shirt, Max Gutierrez quickly jumped into action after he noticed that this other man was not getting the hint.
He subtly passed over a clipboard with what was supposed to be the receipt, but instead, it had a note on it.
“If this guy is bothering you, put your ponytail on your other shoulder, and I will have him removed. He’s giving ME the CREEPS,” it read.
Eventually, Gutierrez had no choice but to intervene by kicking the customer out of the establishment.
Writing on Twitter, Allie re-called the experience: “He ended up having to literally yell at the guy he said ‘you need to get tf [the f***] away from these girls who clearly are not interested.’
“And the dude said ‘that was a little aggressive’ and he said ‘well you’re aggressively hitting on them and you need to leave.'”
Allie also posted a photo (which she took after the guy had left!) of the receipt onto the social media platform which immediately went viral as many commended Gutierrez for his actions.
Gutierrez then found that the incident was re-posted to Reddit, where he elaborated on his thoughts.
”It’s something you just pick up from mentor bartenders. Eventually, you become pretty good at reading people, body language etc. This guy was giving off very weird vibes for quite a while, kept an eye on him, try to give him a chance, try to let the girl 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.”
He then added about how he didn’t like shouting at customers but in this instance, it had to be done.
“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.”
Not all heroes wear capes, some just wear Hawaiin shirts!
