Guardian angel' bartender hands woman secret note to get out of 'creepy' situation

A Florida bartender is being praised for the way he handled a creepy patron — all by handing a woman a secret note. It all started thanks to a viral Twitter thread posted by Trinity Allie on June 13. She shared a photo of the secret note her bartender passed her after a customer had been harassing her and a friend. The message read: "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 bartender eventually took action against the harasser, according to Allie. She added that she made the bartender pose for the photo she shared after the creep left. The Twitter thread went viral with 221,000 likes. "Yes. We need more people like him," one person tweeted. A few days later, the bartender identified himself as Max Gutierrez and the bar as No Vacancy in St. Petersburg, Fla. "Hey, that's me!" Gutierrez tweeted. "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"
