We’ve had our share of our horrible first date stories and if you thought you had the worst bad-date story ever, think again.
A woman in Austin is being sued by 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar after texting during their movie date.
Vezmar claimed in his petition that his date “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages” on their 3-D viewing of Chris Pratt and Zoë Saldana’s Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.
The 37-year-old is apparently asking for the $17.31 he spent on his date’s movie ticket, along with the $4 he spent on her slice of pizza.
Like most logical and normal people with healthy mental health, you must be wondering why Vezmar cares so much about his date checking and answering a few texts the entire duration of the movie. You, by now, must have realized hat our guy here hates people who text in movie theaters, enough for him to file a lawsuit to anyone who does.
According to his court petition, he made a point that her behavior is a “threat to civil society.”
“It was kind of a first date from hell. [Texting] is like one of my biggest pet peeves.”, he said.
The date was the worst for the 35-year-old woman who is now being sued. Reports say, her friend had just gotten into an argument with her boyfriend, and she was doing her best to support her friend via text messaging, while still not disturbing the other people watching the movie.
She told the American-Statesman in a phone call, “I had my phone low and I wasn’t bothering anybody. It wasn’t like constant texting.”
But Vezmar’s complaints about her texting, in addition to the fact that he allegedly kept contacting both his date and even her sister to ask for his money back, left her feeling a little unsafe. Vezmar, however, claims he did not contact his date’s sister.
Needless to say, Vezmar’s date didn’t agree to pay him back for the date, and now, she has this lawsuit to deal with.
James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, has even gotten involved in the now-viral story, tweeting his own two cents on the matter:
