Just to make it clear as I did not word it very well in the original post , he got the $10 bar fine back minus $2.50 for the beer so $7.50 in total. Anyway out of interest and in the need of a beer of course I went in Matilda bar on the same street about 2 doors down I think from bunny bar and got chatting with Ross the owner who I never met before. After a few beers and the general chit chat I put to him the question "what would you do if I barfined 1 of your girls and she stole my phone?" He said he would sack her on the spot and replace the phone.It seems some bar owners do feel it is indeed necessary to do something about it. Mind you he had 24 girls in there that night so losing 1 would have been a blessing as it was a squeeze for even a skinny runt like me to get to toilet.

^ Exactly.

That's the attitude I'd expect from a bar owner. Again, not that they're liable, but Bunny Bar's owner seemed a little lame in the way he handled it.

And with him not making a big deal about it, he's encouraging other girls working there to do the same thing.

If they were to see the owner sack someone right then and there over it, the others would be a lot less likely to steal from a customer.

Maybe he's desperate for staff and couldn't afford to lose a girl.

Also, it would have been different if he said that he had known the girl for a year and that he was skeptical because she's never been known to do anything like that, but to stand up for a girl that he said had only been there for 3 days is fucked up.

Anybody want a free phone for the cost of a barfine? Because that's the other message it sends to less than scrupulous expats/backpackers/etc.

I think the chances of prostitutes stealing phones from the punters is 1000X times more likely than dudes paying a bar fine, paying a girl and then going back to say they lost their iPhone.

Again, he should have at least covered the guy's drink he had while waiting for the owner to come back.

I wonder how various owners would react if a punter informed them that he caught the clap off one of their girls?

This thread has inspired me to place ali baba on my 'ignore' list but read what he posts anyway. I can't help myself.
