Could this be a clue that you are on the date from hell if she is busy texting her BFF’s during a 3-D showing of the “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” movie? According to Fox News, a Texas man wants a full refund for his movie ticket from the online date he took to see it with him. He is demanding a court date. Is this crazy as his date claims or does he have a legit claim?

To be honest, typically when your first date is a bust the first reaction of most people is not to take your former date to small claims court. But, apparently, Brandon Vezmar, 37, of Austin felt that his date should have been just as excited as he was to enjoy the second installment of the block buster hit.

Unfortunately for him his 35-year-old movie companion did not feel what was happening on the movie screen was doing it for her. When she was reached for comment by the media, the woman, who did not want her identity revealed stressed, she did not know about the claim against her and remarked, “Oh my God. This is crazy,” reported the Seattle Times.

Vezmar clearly did not enjoy his date and even described it, “kind of a first date from hell.” He claimed that approximately 15 minutes after the movie began, his date began texting on her phone. He further emphasized that she, “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages,” according to Fox News.

On the other hand, the woman has a very different take on the date that went into the dumpster. She insisted, that she engaged in texting two or perhaps three times. Wanting to be respectful of the movie viewers she stated that, “I had my phone low and I wasn’t bothering anybody,” she said. She was texting a friend, who was having a fight with her boyfriend, and added. “It wasn’t like constant texting.”

Of course, the gentleman caller felt that he was owed repayment for his date’s disregard for the movie watching debacle. Since she had already left the movie before the movie ended, he called her and asked her for the cost of the movie ticket.

Her defense for not paying Vezmar is simply, “He took me out on a date.”
