Brandon Vezmar, a 37-year-old Austin man, is suing a Round Rock woman for texting during a movie date at the Barton Creek Square theater.
According to a petition filed in small claims court in Travis County, Texas, Vezmar, 37, of Austin filed the claim against his date on Thursday. He is asking for $17.31, which was the price of the movie ticket to a 3D showing of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.
The 35-year-old woman, reached by phone by the Austin-American Statesman, said she did not know about the claim being filed against her.
Vezmar, who runs a communications consulting company, said he met the woman online and went with her for their first date on May 6. Vezmar took the woman to see Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2, however, she was unhappy with the way he conducted himself.
In the petition, Vezmar said the woman “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages.”
Vezmar said he asked her to stop but she refused. He said he told her that maybe she could go outside to text. She left the theater and never came back, Vezmar said.
She also left in her car, which they had driven to the theater, leaving Vezmar without a ride, he said. He said he texted her a few days later asking for the price of the ticket but she refused to pay it.
According to the petition, the texting was a “direct violation” of the theater’s policy and that his date “adversely” affected Vezmar’s viewing experience and that of other patrons.
However, according to the woman involved, she says she only texted two or three times. Furthermore, the woman said she planned to file a protective order against Vezmar for contacting her little sister to get the money for the movie ticket.
I’m going to go out on a limb and call this one of the biggest bitch moves I’ve ever seen.
