Man Sues Date

Have you ever been on a terrible date? So has Brandon Vezmar, a Texas man who took a lady on a movie date in 2017. During the screening of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, his date was persistently on her phone. Mr. Vezmar was not happy with it. After spending $17 on her movie ticket and an additional $4 on her pizza, Mr. Vezmar was not having it. He confronted his date through a text and told her that her behavior was “wildly out of line.” He then asked her to pay him back or threatened to pursue the money in a small claims court. His date initially refused to pay him back for the date he took her on, but later caved in. She handed him the money right outside the same movie theatre.
