THIS IS CRAZY’: Austin Man Sues Date For Texting During Movie

Excerpt:

ROUND ROCK

A man is suing a Round Rock woman for texting during a movie date at the Barton Creek Square theater, according to a petition filed in small claims court in Travis County.

Brandon Vezmar, 37, of Austin filed the claim Thursday against his date. He is asking for $17.31, which was the price of the movie ticket to a 3D showing of “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2,” he told the American-Statesman Tuesday.

The 35-year-old woman, reached by phone Tuesday, said she didn’t know about the claim against her. She asked that her name not be used.

“Oh my God,” she said. “This is crazy.”

Vezmar, who has his own communications consulting company, said he met the woman online and went with her on their first date May 6 to the movie.

“It was kind of a first date from hell,” he said. About 15 minutes after the movie began, Vezmar said, his date started texting on her phone. “This is like one of my biggest pet peeves.”

In the petition, Vezmar said the woman “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages.”

Vezmar said he asked her to stop but she refused. He said he told her that maybe she could go outside to text. She left the theater and never came back, Vezmar said.

She also left in her car, which they had driven to the theater, leaving Vezmar without a ride, he said. He said he texted her a few days later asking for the price of the ticket but she refused to pay it.

The woman said Tuesday she only texted on her phone in the theater two or three times.

“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, she said. “It wasn’t like constant texting.”

I cannot believe how RUDE people are today. Her behavior was totally out of bounds.

Just turn the bloody cell phone to the OFF position and watch the movie. If you want to be texting then stay home!

We all see this type of rude behavior all the time. Last night we saw four women of varying ages sitting at a table next to us in a restaurant and all four of them were texting on their cell phones. They didn't get off the phone until the server came up to get their order. Once the order was placed guess what -- they were right back on their phones. What happened to TALKING TO THE PEOPLE YOUR WITH?

Is conversation a dying art form?

It sounds like she regretted agreeing to meet him almost as soon as the date started. Very rude to text all night.
All she had to do watch the movie, and graciously tell him to have a nice life.

But suing over a bad date? Her instincts were probably right.

Suing over a bad date? What a moron.

He should be HAPPY it only cost him $17.31 to find out she was an inconsiderate b!tch. He didn't even have to buy her dinner, FFS.

Well, I kind of think they are both perfectly suited for nobody.

It seems like every day there's new proof we're living in Bizarro World.

They're both losers in my book.

Both seem like <censored>s. No wonder they needed to use a dating site.

Yeah, but she left him stranded there. Given his level of stupidity, I'm surprised he's not including the cost of getting a ride a home.

And just how dumb do you have to be to take a woman you're dating for the first time to see "Guardians of the Galaxy 2"? :scratch:

What did he have planned for the second date, take her to see the next Batman movie?

You should never go to a movie on the first date. How do you get to know someone staring at a screen for 2+ hours?

And yeah, they both acted like jackasses.

Don't know why, but it reminds me of that scene in Taxi Driver where Travis Bickle takes Cybil Shepard to a porno movie for their first (and only) date.

Hey, she drove so it's pretty much a wash, right?

You text her, obviously.

I don't give a damn if people text each other at restaurants or on the street. I don't understand why so many people bitch about that. It's none of my business or anyone else's either. It's pretty easy to ignore silent activity at another table. It IS rude at the movies because the light is distracting. Of course, if I was held at gunpoint and forced to see 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2', I would definitely welcome the distraction.

Couldn't agree more. Don't care what people do that aren't bothering me directly.

Liked the first one. But I didn't go to the theater to see it, nor will I go to the theater to see this one. However, I really can't think of too many movies I would enjoy at gunpoint...
