The great city of Austin, Texas has a motto:
Keep Austin Weird.
But the following story is especially weird… even for the great city of Austin.
According to the Austin American-Statesman, a 37-year-old man named Brandon Vezmar has filed a lawsuit against an unnamed 35-year old woman with whom he went on a date last week.
The two saw a 3D screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but the woman apparently was not a huge fan of this blockbuster sequel.
And it has angered Vezmar to such an extent that he wants the money back he used to pay for her ticket.
Describing the outing as “a first date from hell,” Vezmar told the Texas newspaper that his date started texting about 15 minutes into the film.
According to a official petition filed in small claims court, Vezmar’s date “activated her phone at least 10-20 times” until he asked her to cut it out.
When he recommend she go outside if she wanted to continue, the woman exited the theater altogether, leaving Vezmar without a ride home.
Vezmar went on to say this horrible, no-good, evil woman woman refused to reimburse him for the ticket, as his petition outlines her behavior as “a threat to civilized society.”
Really. We’re not making this up.
Reached by phone Tuesday, the woman said she didn’t know about the claim against her.
She asked that her name not be used in the newspaper story and added:
“Oh my God. This is crazy.”
Vezmar, ironically, owns a communications consulting company and said he met the woman online. This was their first date and it took place on May 6.
He says that texting during a movie is one of his “biggest pet peeves” and, look, we agree. It’s very rude.
It would definitely end any possibility of us considering a second date with such a person.
But it wouldn’t prompt a lawsuit filing.
“I had my phone low and I wasn’t bothering anybody,” the woman told the newspaper in her defense, explaining she was texting a friend, who was having a fight with her boyfriend and adding:
“It wasn’t like constant texting.”
According to Vezmar’s petition, the texting was a “direct violation” of the theater’s policy, while his date “adversely” affected Vezmar’s viewing experience, along with that of other paying customers.
“I’m not a bad woman,” the woman told the Statesman. “I just went out on a date.”
You’re not a bad woman, huh? This is exactly what a bad woman would say!
