Bar Puts Up A Brilliant Sign To Stop Female Workers From Being Harassed

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.

Although I absolutely support the message, I think it's bound to fall on deaf ears in the profession she's in. Men + Alcohol = Inappropriate. There's a reason that bartending is a lucrative profession for women, and that whole "being nice because it's my job thing" has a lot to do with recognizing that a lot of money can be had from men who think there's gold at the end of the rainbow, even if every right-thinking person in the world understands that's not reality. Just being real here -- if avoiding creepy men is your objective, bartending's probably not for you. Just sayin'.

It kinda happens in every job. When taking orders over the phone i hear everyday how beautiful i sound and can't i give my number/deliver the order myself (and sometimes more pervy stuff) by perfectly sober husbands and fathers and all i can do i laugh and be polite. Perhaps us women shouldn't leave the house at all and just get jobs where we work on computers where our sexual orientation is unknown so we don't get harassed by 'creepy men', and if we do it's our own fault for leaving the house right?

Why the fuck would you kiss a random chicks hand? I mean. If you're wearing a bloody tuxedo and a top hat and the chick is your date to a Ball then sure, but a random bartender. No thanks, I'll stick to my beer.
