Bartender Praised as ‘Hero’ After Giving Two Girls Note Disguised as Receipt to Save Them from Being Harassed

A woman praised a bartender after he gave her and her friend a note pretending it was a receipt to save them from being harassed by a creepy guy.

Twitter user Trinity Allie shared a photo of a bartender, Max Gutierrez, in St Petersburg, Florida, and said he was ‘the type of bartender everyone needs.’

“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,” she wrote alongside a photo of Max handing her a small clipboard with a paper note attached.

“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,” the note read.

What a discreet way to offer your help in a bar!

The tweet went viral and amassed 209K likes on Twitter, with thousands of retweets and comments.

In a subsequent tweet, Trinity revealed that Max actually yelled at the creepy guy and asked him to leave when he wouldn’t stop bothering her and her pal.

“He ended up having to literally yell at the guy he said “you need to get tf away from these girls who clearly are not interested” & the dude said “that was a little aggressive” and he said “well ur aggressively hitting on them & you need to leave” she added.

After the guy left, Trinity asked Max to pose with the discreet note so that she could take his picture and show her appreciation for what he did for her.

“I made him pose for this after the guy left lol just to show my appreciation,” she said.

People in the comment section applauded Max for his heroic actions.

Max also responded to Trinity’s tweet and gave a fun update on the ‘creepy guy.’

“Hey that’s me! Lol Fun update, the guy I kicked out Sunday night came back to the bar JUST NOW for a beer, told him I wouldn’t serve him,” he wrote.

Someone took a screenshot of Trinity’s viral tweet and shared it on Reddit. When the post reached Gutierrez, he commented on the situation in detail.

“It’s something you just pick up from mentor bartenders. Eventually you become pretty good at reading people, body language etc,” he said.

“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.”

“I honestly don’t like yelling at customers or embarrassing people,” he continued. “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.”
