Bartender Uses Fake Receipt to Save Women from Being Hit on by 'Creep'

For many American women, a fun night at the bar can be ruined by idiot men who consider themselves attractive and suave but are really just thinking with their pants.

Fortunately, this all-too-common facet of American life can be mitigated by a bartender with a keen eye.

One such occurrence came about recently in St. Petersburg, Florida. Twitter user @trinityallie was at a local establishment with a friend on June 13 when a male stranger, who the New York Post described as an “unwanted pick-up artist,” started harassing the two women.

Thankfully, the bartender on duty, Max Gutierrez, handed Allie what looked to be a receipt, but was really a note.

“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. The ponytail was indeed moved, and the wannabe ladies’ man was kicked out of the establishment.

The tweet quickly went viral, accruing over 217,000 likes as of Tuesday morning.

Several commenters immediately became suspicious of Gutierrez posing for a photo, wondering who would do that while kicking a guy out, but Allie quickly clarified in a reply to her original tweet that the photo was taken after the fact.

Four days after the tweet went viral, Gutierrez himself replied to Allie’s tweet and reported that the lone bachelor returned to the bar, only to be again removed from the establishment.

Most of the comments, especially after the update, were overwhelmingly supportive of Gutierrez, with one commenter even noting, “Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear Hawaiian shirts.”

All in all, what was a horrible experience for two women just trying to enjoy a night out became a much better one thanks to the actions of our quick-thinking bartender.

If you ever feel uncomfortable at a bar, or require some form of assistance, order an “angel shot” and a bartender will escort you to your car. It could save your life.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
