A Florida bartender gave two female patrons a note that might have saved their lives when a “creepy” guy kept hitting on them.
On June 13, bartender Max Gutierrez of the No Vacancy Bar in St. Petersburg wrote a note that looked like a receipt with a signal to kick the odd man out, Fox Tampa Bay reported.
“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,” Gutierrez wrote.

Gutierrez removed the man after Allie moved her ponytail as instructed.
“You need to get … away from these girls who clearly are not interested,” Gutierrez told the man, according to The Tampa Bay Times.
“That was a little aggressive,” the man in response back.
“Well you’re aggressively hitting on them and you need to leave,” Gutierrez said.
In addition to being a skilled bartender, Gutierrez is a new hire at No Vacancy and his character is why the owner hired him.
“He got a great reputation downtown, he was someone we were excited to bring on,” the owner told 10 Tampa Bay. “He is a talented bartender, he is very experienced, but he also shows you the character on him. Those are the people that we always want.”
