Worst Date Ever Involves Texting During Movie; Lawsuit, Accusations
I've gotten into the weird habit of watching "First Dates" on TV occasionally on Friday evenings.
It is a "reality show" in which people go on first dates and see if they establish a connection. It's oddly entertaining.
Some couples seem to hit it off. Some dates are terrible. The guilty pleasure is watching how people looking for love find connections.
However, the worst date ever wasn't on this TV show. It was in Austin Texas, when, according to the Austin (Texas) American Statesman, Brandon Vezmar, 37, of Austin took a 35 -year-old woman on a date to see a 3D showing of the movie "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2"
Veznar said the woman kept texting during the movie, and he got annoyed. "This is, like, one of my biggest pet peeves," Veznar said.
Yeah, texting during a movie can be annoying, but what Vezmar did next was a little over the top. He's suing the woman for $17.31, the cost of the movie ticket.
He was particularly peeved that she got annoyed by Veznar's texting scolding, so she left, leaving him without a ride home.
When the Austin American-Statesman informed the woman she was being sued by Vezmar, she said, "Oh my God.....This is crazy."
Sometimes, two annoyinig people can make magic together. However, in Austin, an obnoxiously texting woman and a litigious man couldn't make it work.
How sad. Or not.
On the bright side, the CEO of another Austin theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, has offered a $17.31 gift certificate to settle the lawsuit.
