Bars are a great place to meet people—but sometimes, it’s also a place where creeps like to hit on uninterested women. And that can be a truly uncomfortable situation for women. After all, how do you politely leave the situation?

Well, thanks to one smart, quick-thinking bartender, one young woman who was getting aggressively hit on never had to worry about what to do. The bartender had her back.

The woman, who tweets from the handle @TrinityAllie, was at a bar called No Vacancy in Florida when the man started to hit on her. But as an easy out, the bartender, Max Gutierrez, who noticed what was going on, decided to step in and handed her a note disguised as a bill.

“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, ” the note said.

Allie shared a photo of the bartender handing her the note, with the caption, “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.”

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

Gutierrez shared on Reddit that the man was “giving off weird vibes” but wanted to make sure his customer felt the same way before he did something about it. “I honestly don’t like yelling at customers or embarrassing people, but I find it’s one of the best ways to handle creeps,” he said. “I just don’t need my guests feeling uncomfortable.”

Allie’s tweet went viral, racking up over 47,000 shares, with countless comments of people praising what Gutierrez did.

“HERO!!!! We need more people to stand up when they see such actions!” someone posted. “These two ladies were very lucky to have this bartender!!”

“Aww, amazing story,” another person wrote. “There definitely need to be more lovely people like him looking out for us girls and kicking out the wrong ones.”

“I hate guys who harass you and then act like YOU’RE the one out of line when you blow up at them,” another commented.
