A Texas man is suing his date for texting during their movie. According to the Austin Statesman, 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar is suing his 35-year-old date for a whopping $17.31 - the price of the 3D movie ticket. When the woman got word of the lawsuit she said, "Oh my God...This is crazy." Our sentiments exactly. She said she only texted 2-3 times to her friend who was having an argument with her boyfriend. However, Vezmar claims she was on her phone at least 10-20 times within the first 15 minutes of the film. When he asked her to stop, she refused so he told her maybe she could go outside to text...Well, that's exactly what his date did. She exited the theater and never came back, leaving in her car and leaving Vezmar without a ride home.

She said Vezmar had called her to ask her to pay him back for the movie ticket but she refused because “he took me out on a date.”
She said she also planned to file a protective order against Vezmar for contacting her little sister to get the money for the movie ticket.
According to the petition, the texting was a “direct violation” of the theater’s policy and that his date “adversely” affected Vezmar’s viewing experience and that of other patrons.
“While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant’s behavior is a threat to civilized society,” the petition said.
“I’m not a bad woman,” the woman told the Statesman. “I just went out on a date.”
