When a female bartender is being nice to you, it’s because that’s what she’s being paid to do. It’s not because she’s uncontrollably attracted to you. But some customers at The Beer Cellar in Devon, UK, don’t quite understand this (because, you know, it’s so damn complicated), and so the bar has decided to put up a helpful sign to literally spell it out for them.

“We basically just printed it out after we had a very sex-pest heavy weekend about three months ago,” bartender Lauren Dew told Mashable. When asked about how the clientele have reacted to it, she said “people really laugh, people support it. One percent think it’s a bit offensive, which is funny to me because those are the people it’s aimed at.” The sign was created by Illustrator Charlotte Mullin, who said “I wanted to make it clear that female staff are nice to you because they have to be! And, of course, most of us are decent human beings and would be nice to you anyway, but in no way does this mean we’re dying for your dick.” Got the message yet guys? We sure hope so.
