Some first dates are memorable and blossom to greater things to each other’s lives. Others involve a drastic story of insanity that makes you wonder where someone has this amount of time and energy to act in such a way. This one just happens to involve a beloved comic book movie.
Brandon Vezmar is suing his anonymous date for the amount of $17.31 – the exact amount paid for a 3D admission ticket to viewing the film they watched, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Vezmar describes the “first date from hell” when the woman did not put her phone away and continued to text through the film. She “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes”. Vezmar finally made his stand to request her to take the conversation outside, which she did…in addition to going into her car and ditched Vezmar, being his ride home as well.
Vezmar’s argument claims this is a “direct violation” of the theater’s policy, which “adversely” ended up affecting his personal viewing experience. He even goes above to say that despite modest damages, “the principle is impartant as defendant’s behavior is a threat to civilized society”.
When reached to comment, the female responded “Oh my god. This is crazy”. She then claimed that she only texted “two or three times…I had my phone low and I wasn’t bothering anybody.” Regardless, a protective order is being filed against Vezmar, to which she refuses to pay back because “he took me out on a date”. She closes it off with “I’m not a bad woman, I just went out on a date”.

Makes you wonder how much is being spent on court dates and filing for the reimbursement of a $17.31 ticket.
