A man from Austin, Texas, is suing his date for texting during a movie, the Austin Statesman reports. Brandon Vezmar is asking for $17.31, the cost of a 3D ticket to see “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.” Vezmar said it was a “first date from hell,” during which the defendant allegedly text “at least 10-20 times” in a 15 minute period. When the plaintiff asked her if she could go outside to text, she left the theater entirely, leaving Vezmar without a ride home. The petition claims the “defendant’s behavior is a threat to civilized society.”
