A Texas man brought his Tinder date to the movies, to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2. However, her behavior during the movie caused him to ask her to leave the theater. She did, leaving the man without a ride. Now, he’s suing her, citing her behavior as “a threat to civilized society”.
What she was doing though, was common for most people. The woman, who asked to remain unnamed, pulled out her cell phone, and proceeded to text throughout the movie.
The man, 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar of Austin, says that his date reached for her phone no less than 10 times during the movie.
He’s now suing her for all of $17.31, the price of the movie ticket he paid for.
Entertainment Weekly reports:
Describing the outing as “a first date from hell,” Vezmar told the newspaper that his date began texting about 15 minutes into the movie. According to a petition filed in small claims court, Vezmar’s date “activated her phone at least 10-20 times” until he asked her to stop. When he suggested she go outside to text, the woman departed the theater altogether and left Vezmar without a ride home, he said.
Vezmar said the woman subsequently refused to reimburse him for the ticket, and his petition described her behavior as “a threat to civilized society.”
Reached by the American-Statesman, the woman asked not to be identified by name and said she wasn’t aware of the claim against her. “Oh my God,” she said. “This is crazy.”
She added that she only texted in the theater two or three times.
