Singles desperate to escape a terror date are told to use a special keyword at the bar to ask for help.
Sort an & # 39; angel shot & # 39; It will allow the bar staff to know that the person needs help to get out of the place as quickly as possible and without the knowledge of their date.
The posters that currently circulate through the bathroom doors of some of Sydney's bars are advising women to ask for an "angel shot" if they are on a date and things get ugly.
The posters say that if a woman feels worried or insecure at some point during an appointment, she can ask the waiter to give her an "angel picture" and arrange a taxi.

"We will handle things discreetly and without much fuss (we have been there, and we want you to know that you are in good hands)," says a statement on a poster.
Social networks have responded positively to the campaign, and those who have seen the posters comment that they appreciated that there was a procedure to help women who feel insecure during appointments.
Recently, a person shared an Instagram photo of a poster they had seen at Holey Moley, a mini golf course.

"I love how they have this protocol for women who feel insecure while they are out and to know that you are not alone," said the person with the title of the image.
"I do not know if all the pubs and clubs do this, but I really hope they do!"
In response to the poster, a commenter explained how using a discrete code not only protected women, but also staff.
"I have been working in several clubs where women have come to ask for help," they wrote.
"As soon as the boy sees her talking to a guard, everything runs and they let us deal with a situation that would not happen if I gave a simple code to a bartender and they told us on the radio. & # 39;
A similar initiative & # 39; Ask for Angela & # 39; was launched by the Government of NSW earlier this year (stock image)
The campaign is not the only one of its kind either.

Earlier this year, the NSW Government launched & # 39; Ask for Angela & # 39; in the hotels, pubs and clubs of Sydney.
The initiative was in response to the increase of strangers willing to meet through dating applications and developed in conjunction with the police.
Police Minister Troy Grant told The Daily Telegraph that he did not want people to feel "intimidated" or "threatened" when they were socializing in the city.
"Given the growing popularity of online dating applications, many people gather for appointments in bars, clubs and pubs that have never met beyond the screens of their phone or computer," he said.
Staff will be trained to help women who request Angela & # 39; to leave the bar safely, call the police or take them to a safe place inside the premises.
Meanwhile, the Iberian rooster in St. Petersburg, Florida, has also tried the & # 39; Angel Shot & # 39;
