Dude Sues Date for Texting During 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vo. 2'

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Texas man is suing a woman for the $17.31 he spent on a date where he claims she texted throughout the movie they attended together.

Brandon Vezmar of Austin alleges in his lawsuit that he met the woman on dating app Bumble and they went on a first date to eat pizza and watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at a movie theater.

The lawsuit alleges the woman opened her phone to read and send text messages 10 to 20 times during the film.

Court papers filed by Vezmar state texting is in direct violation of the theater`s policy, [adversely] affecting the viewing experience of plaintiff and others."


Although this Texas man might be slightly anal-retentive, texting is against the policy of most theaters, disrespectful to the audience and to your date. He should have simply deleted her phone number, and never seen her again.

Allow me to come to the defense of the woman, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is a very entertaining movie and she was probably texting her friends: I`m watching Guardians with a total loser, but you`ve got to see this movie! OMG! Baby Groot is adorable! I wish I were on a date with him!

With all due respect to the dude, if you spend less than $20 on a date, you shouldn`t expect her undivided attention.

The jackass said he decided to file the lawsuit after the woman declined to reimburse him for the $17.31 he spent on the movie tickets. Are you kidding me, he should be grateful that she didn`t go full Baby Groot tantrum on him.
