Bartender branded a 'hero' after giving two girls note disguised as a receipt

Bartender branded a 'hero' after giving two girls note disguised as a receipt

Max the bartender became a legend overnight

This bartender has achieved legendary status after using a smart trick to save two girls from being creeped on.

Following a night of drinks, X user Trinity Allie let followers know about her hero of the night, bartender Max Gutierrez, who served and then saved them from a 'creep'.

She posted a photo of her with the man of the hour in the bar in St.Petersburg, Florida, who was wearing a patterned Hawaiian shirt, and Trinity couldn't help but rave about his flawless tactic.


She started to explain the situation to followers, which involved the man who was acting weirdly around her and her friend.

"This man was harassing me and my friend and the bartender passed this note to me acting like it was my receipt!" she praised.

"Legit the type of bartender everyone needs."

In the photo she posted of the situation, Max is seen holding up a receipt clipboard with a piece of paper attached that said: "If this guy is bothering you, put your pony tail on your other shoulder, and I will have him removed. He's giving ME the CREEPS."

A brave and smart move, but it ultimately worked out for the girls.

"I made him pose for this after the guy left lol just to show my appreciation," Trinity later explained.

"[Max] 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', and the dude said 'that was a little aggressive', and he said 'well [you're] aggressively hitting on them and you need to leave'."


Trinity's story quickly went viral and, at the time of writing, has been liked over 200k times.

So it's no surprise that the legend himself, Max the bartender, eventually came across her tweet.

"Hey that's me! Lol," he replied.

"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."

Max later shared some more details about the encounter on Reddit, when Trinity's story went so viral that it ended up on the forum website.

"It's something you just pick up from mentor bartenders," Max explained modestly.

"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 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."


He continued: "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."

Now, that's a real class act.
