A quick-thinking bartender received praise for aiding two girls who were out on the town and being harassed by a creepy guy in a bar in Florida.
Trinity Allie and her friend were spending quality time together in the bar when the said man started making advances targeting them.
Bartender Max Gutierrez noticed the creepy reveler’s lewd behavior and so decided to take action in a rather savvy manner.
Discreetly penning a message on a receipt clip, feigning to write a bill, Max slipped Trinity the note without provocation.
“If this guy is bothering you, put your pony tail on the other shoulder, and I will have him removed,” read the note. “He’s giving ME THE CREEPS.”
Weighing her options, Trinity took him up on his offer. She later recounted on Twitter how the night ended:
“He ended up having to literally yell at the guy he said ‘you need to get [expletive] away from these girls who clearly are not interested’ & the dude said ‘that was a little aggressive’ and he said ‘well you are aggressively hitting on them and you need to leave.’”
After he’d gone, she had Max hold the note for a photo—and it went viral on Twitter.
“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,” Trinity captioned.
The picture went viral, garnering nearly 222,000 likes and almost 50,000 retweets.
Even Max commented on the thread, offering an update to the story, four days after the photo went viral.
“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.
Meanwhile, social media users were impressed by Max’s suave moves and offered words of praise.
“That’s real dope of the bartender. S/O to him a real one,” commented one Twitter user.
“Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear Hawaiian shirts,” said another.
