Everywhere you go these days, you see people with their eyes and thumbs glued to their phones. However one Austin man got really upset when he took his date to a 3D showing of “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” at the Barton Creek Square theater. Brandon Vezmar, 37, said it was the “First Date From Hell” and he's suing to get the cost of her movie ticket back.

Date was texting 10-20 times during the movie

According to Vezmar’s petition, his date used her phone a minimum of 10-20 times within 15 minutes, to send and read text messages during the movie.

He asked the Round Rock woman to stop, but she reportedly refused. When he said to her that she should rather go outside to text, his date left the theater and didn’t return. What made it even worse was that his date left in her car – in which they had both traveled to the theater – leaving him stranded.

‘First date from hell’ as the woman keeps texting

As noted by the New York Post, Vezmar – who runs a communications consulting company – was disgusted by his date’s behavior. He said it was their first date and he had met the woman online. They agreed to go to the movie theater on May 6. Vezmar said she started texting around 15 minutes into the film, adding that this is one of his “biggest pet peeves.” Vezmar went on to say he texted the woman a couple of days later, asking her to refund the price of her theater ticket, but she refused.

Vezmar then decided to take his “date from hell” to court to get back the $17.31 he paid for her movie ticket. He filed the petition in the Travis County small claims court on Thursday. In the document it pointed out that while the damages sought from the woman are “modest,” the principle behind it is important, stating that her behavior is a “threat to civilized society.” The petition also pointed out that texting in the theater is a “direct violation” of its policy.

The document said that her actions had adversely affected the viewing experience of both Vezmar and other patrons in the movie theater.

Woman says the petition against her is crazy

The Austin-Statesman reached out to the woman in question on Tuesday, but the 35-year-old told them she didn’t know anything about the petition against her.

Asking that the newspaper not use her name, she said it was "crazy." The woman said she only texted two or three times while in the movie theater, adding that her phone was on low and wasn’t bothering anyone. She went on to say that she was keeping in touch with a friend who was having problems with her boyfriend, but it wasn’t constant texting.

She said when Vezmar called her to ask for the price of the movie ticket back, she refused, because he had taken her out on a date. She added that Vezmar had also contacted her sister to ask for the money, so she is planning to file a protective order against him. She concluded the conversation by saying she isn’t a bad woman and that all she did was go out on a date.
