10 Bar Staff and Regulars Tell Times Men had to Get Away from Dangerous Dates
In recent years there's been a campaign to make bars less predatory by employing coded language, like asking your bartender for an "angel shot" to indicate that you might need help from the staff to get out of anything from simply a bad date to a potentially really dangerous situation. The idea is generally thought of as a tool for creeped-out women to get away from men, but occasionally the reverse will happen. Redditors on the community r/AskReddit had a large-scale discussion about those reverse instances where it's actually men who request help. A few stories of dates gone absolutely wrong later, we're all a bit more knowledgeable about what some people in the world are capable of. Whether it's a truly terrible date or groups of people making you feel uncomfortable at the club, there's never anything wrong with asking for help if you decide you can't get out of a sticky situation on your own. Props to the bar staff and bouncers in these stories too for taking each scenario as seriously as the person in need of help deserved.
