A Texas man has filed a lawsuit against a woman he went on a date with because she was texting in the cinema.
Brandon Vezmar, 37, said he complained about the unnamed woman’s phone use during their viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.
She refused and walked out after Mr Vezmar repeated his requests.
Mr Vezmar said her behaviour was a “threat to civilised society”. He now wants to recoup the $17.31 (£13.37) he paid for her cinema ticket.
He described the event as a “first date from hell” and said people texting inappropriately is one of his pet hates.
