After bad first date, man sues woman for cost of movie ticket

Look, if you’re going to go to the movies, watch the movie and put your phone down.

Is that too much to ask?

Let’s ask Brandon Vezmar, 37, who took a woman to “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2,” and then apparently got ticked off that she spent the first part of the movie texting.

So he’s suing her for $17.31, the cost of the tickets, the Austin American-Statesmen reports.

Oh my God,” the woman tells the newspaper. “This is crazy.”

The two met online — you didn’t see that coming? — and this was their first date.

“It was kind of a first date from hell,” Vezmar said. “This is like one of my biggest pet peeves.”

He told the woman that maybe she should go outside to text. She did.

She never came back.

Vezmar needed a ride home because they’d gone to the movie in her car.

“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.”

She says she’ll seek an order for protection.
