Max Gutierrez, a bartender in St. Petersburg, Florida, was reunited with a woman whom he saved from a patron that would not stop bothering her and a friend while they were out having a drink.

Gutierrez passed Trinity Allie a note disguised as a receipt after Allie and her friend were being persistently pestered by a fellow customer.

The note below went viral about two weeks ago.



Gutierrez also saw the tweet and commented.


And within a few days, the two were again reunited by NBC News 8.

"No bartender has ever stepped in for me and that's why I thought it was so great and everyone should hear about it," Allie said.

"You never know what could have happened...Say he didn't step in and this guy followed me and my friend out when we left."

Women on Twitter thanked Gutierrez for his work keeping patrons safe.





Gutierrez said that he doesn't think of himself as a "hero."

"I was just doing my job," he said.



The frequency of people being harassed In public without any assistance is far too high. Anyone who has felt in physical danger from another patron knows it's not often someone steps up to their aid.

On behalf of those people, Mr. Gutierrez, we salute you.
