Man Is Suing His Date For Texting During Guardians Of The Galaxy 2

The issue of texting in theaters has become a controversial one over the past few years. Now the stakes have been raised even higher with the news of a man who is suing his date for excessive texting during the recent Marvel smash Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

As reported by the Austin-based Statesman, 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar filed a claim to recoup the $17.31 he paid for his date’s ticket. The site states that Vezmar met the woman online, and the visit to the theater in Round Rock, Texas, was their first date.

In his petition, Vezmar alleges that the woman “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages.” Vezmar says that she also left the theater after the movie without giving him a lift, and that his subsequent attempts to contact her to get the ticket money refunded were ignored.

“While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant’s behavior is a threat to civilized society,” Vezmar states in his petition.

The Statesman contacted the woman, who did not know about the claim and asked for her name not to be used. She told the site: “This is crazy. I had my phone low and I wasn’t bothering anybody. It wasn’t like constant texting. I’m not a bad woman. I just went out on a date.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has also weighed in on the issue of the alleged texting during his movie:

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opened earlier this month and is proving hugely successful. To date it has made $636.9 million at the worldwide box office.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this.
