According to Vezmar, "It was kind of a first date from hell". On May 6, they went to the Barton Square Theater to watch the 3D screening of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. He claims his date would not respect his request to stop texting, but left and drove home after he asked her to take it outside. She also left in her own vehicle, which she had used to drive them both to the theater, leaving him without a ride.

The date, who asked to be unnamed, said she wasn't aware of the charges until the American Statesman asked her. Refinery29 reports that she said, "I had my phone low and I wasn't bothering anybody".

Vezmar said he texted his scorned date a few days later asking for money back for the movie ticket but she refused to pay. "It wasn't like constant texting", the woman said. He reportedly contacted both her and her little sister for money for the tickets after she left the theater.

(CNN) - A Texas man is demanding a refund from his date after she texted while they were at the movies in Austin.

Well, from his perspective, she was the insane one.




Vezmar claims that she started using her mobile device 15 minutes into the film. When the American-Statesman reached out to the woman for comment, she simply said, "Oh my God".

He alleges his date began texting 15 minutes into the movie.

However, the woman never returned.

Texas' own Alamo Drafthouse is offering some assistance to the man in the middle of a $17 dollar lawsuit with a woman he accuses of improper date etiquette and ditching him at the theater.

Vezmar also characterized what his date did as "a threat to civilized society". My best friend needed me right away and you said my phone was driving you insane then I felt so uncomfortable. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 director James Gunn even caught wind of what had happened and reacted on Twitter, jokingly asking: "Why stop at suing?".
