Scottish pub swaps kilts for pants after female patrons get handsy

5 posts in this topic

INVERNESS, Scotland, July 13 (UPI) -- A popular Scottish pub known for its traditional atmosphere announced its male bar staff are switching from kilts to pants after repeated harassment from female patrons.

Kit Fraser, owner of the Hootananny pub in Inverness, said male workers used to wear kilts as part of the pub's traditional theme, which also includes frequent live performances of traditional Scottish music. But they are now donning pants to protect them from women who would lift their kilts to check whether they were "true Scotsmen."

"You get large groups of drinking women circling around when you are collecting glasses and asking whether you are true Scotsman -- and they find out for themselves," Iain Howie, assistant manager of Hootananny, told the Inverness Courier. "The first few times it is funny. But when it is really busy and everyone has to work fast and hard, and your hands are full of glasses, you feel quite vulnerable."

Those male employees should sue the customers for sexual harassment.

They could retire off the money they would make from that!

Nothing like promoting the evil system! Sue sue sue, money, money, money solves all problems or does it just create more?

Well, sexual harassment is a crime, and the threat of monetary loss is a good deterrent.
