London bar's bathroom sign offers to help rescue Tinder users from their grave right-swipe mistakes.
The Brickyard, a bar in England, is all too aware that Tinder dates don't necessarily go as planned. The St Albans bar recently posted a message in their women's bathroom giving customers an escape plan if the date is going poorly.

Tinder date gone wrong?
Doesn't look like his picture, or just plain weird?
If you're on an date and it's not going well, come to the bar and ask for Rachelle or Jennifer and we'll get you out it and/or get you a taxi.
Your safety is our highest priority.
If anyone is bothering you or making you feel uncomfortable please tell us. We will discreetly move them away, and if necessary ask them to leave.
the Brickyard is safe and fun, we want you to enjoy your time here. Talk to us and we'll sore it out :)
The bar's owner, James Hanning, told Mashable that the sign “came about because two different women asked two different managers if men they were with looked like photos they had on their smartphones." Safe to guess that no, those men did not look like their pictures.
“They were light-hearted conversations," Hanning said, "but we realized there was a potential for discomfort and thought that a discreet sign would help give dates the confidence to ask for assistance if things weren’t going well.”
After a photo of the sign made it online, people shared their hearty approval.
@benjackthomas More places need to do this. It's an excellent idea.— Fizza (@FizzieLou) April 20, 2016
A fair number of people, though, pointed out that women can be creeps, too.
As such, the men are also in on the secret escape plan.
Now everyone can flee their dates.
