Sometimes first dates or first nights don’t go as planned and you could find yourself in an uncomfortable or potentially scary situation.

In bars, clubs and licensed businesses in London, the Met Police have a safety campaign known as Ask for Angela, which allows you to let staff know you need help without causing a scene.

But it looks like there could also be another way to signal that you need help, especially if you’re traveling to places like the United States.

A Los Angeles bartender named Benji Spears has gone viral online after explaining the simple code word you can use to alert bartenders to your problem — and your date will likely be none the wiser.
