A Texan woman is being sued by a man she went on a date with for not engaging in the movie he paid for.
The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, agreed to go watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 with 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar on May 6 and has been regretting it ever since.
You see, Vezmar is claiming because she began texting on her phone 15 minutes into the movie, he deserves to be reimbursed the $20 he paid for her movie ticket.
Listen: Osher Günsberg has some advice for a girl who keeps falling for the same crappy guys.
And because his date has refused to do so, he’s suing her, having filed a lawsuit in small claims court last Thursday.
In a statement to KVUE, the woman described the situation as “crazy” and said she chose to leave the date after he confronted her because he made her feel “extremely uncomfortable”.
She said she was only texting a friend in need.
“He (Vezmar) has escalated the situation far past what any mentally healthy person would,” she said in the statement.
“I feel sorry that I hurt his feelings badly enough that he felt he needed to commit so much time and effort into seeking revenge.
“I hope one day he can move past this and find peace in his life.”
She said she's even considered taking a protective order against the man because after he called her to ask for the money back and she refused, he then rang her little sister.
Meanwhile, Vezmar described the evening to the American-Statesman as "a first date from hell" as the woman was guilty of one of his "biggest pet peeves".
Growing increasingly annoyed by the texting, Vezmar said he asked her stop or suggested she go outside to text.
"I said, 'Listen, your texting is driving me a little nuts' and she said 'I can't not text my friend.'"
"I said 'maybe you can take it outside to the lobby, I've seen people get kicked out movies for this."
And the woman did leave... without, you know, coming back.
Because the pair had driven together in the woman's car, Vezmar was stranded. (Though we're guessing with a phone - or at least a bit of cash - and therefore had the ability to call a taxi or look up a bus timetable.)
On Twitter, Vezmar seemed chuffed with his new-found notoriety.
We wonder how many dates he will get after this?
We think we know the answer.
Would you walk out on a bad date halfway through?
