“It was kind of a first date from hell. Texting is like one of my biggest pet peeves.”


Remember when we posted about a girl who rejected a guy and he sent a buzz kill text to the girl? Well, it looks like we’ll add another member to the growing population of men savages on earth!

A 37-year-old guy named Brandon Vezmar shared about his disastrous date which ended up in a court petition when he sued his date who was texting non-stop during the movie. Vezmar asked the woman for his money back — $17.31 for her movie ticket and $4 for a slice of pizza.

Guy, Texting, Movie, Date, lawsuit, WTF, LOL

And while watching Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Vezmar said that his date casually used her phone 10-20 times in the span of 15 minutes to read and send text messages.

Apparently, the woman defended herself by saying that she’s just texting her friend who happened to be having an argument with her boyfriend at the time. She thought she was just being the “I-am-here-for-you-screw-movie-dates” kind of friend. So y’all know what happened–she just had a gold medal for that!

Vezmar tried to calm himself as his date continued texting, but eventually, he asked her to leave the theatre to continue what she’s doing outside the cinema. Surprisingly, she left and did not return. What further triggered his anger was the woman happens to be his only ride home for that supposedly romantic date.

Unluckily, Vezmar’s date didn’t agree to pay him back for the date, and now, she has this lawsuit to deal with.

Hmm, guys seem to act savage nowadays, so careful ladies, their boldness comes from 0-100 real quick.
