When you sit next to a texter in a movie theater it can be a little irritating. But when Brandon Vezmar from Texas took his date to see Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, he became so annoyed that he's now suing her for $17.31 – the cost of the movie ticket.
According to USA Today:
"This is, like, one of my biggest pet peeves," he told Austin's American-Statesman.
"It was kind of a first date from hell," he told the paper, saying that about 15 minutes after the movie began, his date – who he met on dating app Bumble – started texting.
In his lawsuit, which was filed at a Travis County small claims court, Vezmar said the woman "activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages."
But perhaps it's not just the texting that left the 37-year-old gentleman smarting. When he told her to leave the theater if she wanted to text, she went outside and never came back, leaving him to find another ride home.
Apparently, the couple, who met on the dating app Bumble, were not a match.
