Vezmar's date said she was asked to pay him back for the ticket but refused to do so because "he took me out on a date". The 37-year-old claimed that the woman had demonstrated one of his biggest pet peeves and hugely irritated him. They went on a first date to a movie theater to see "Guardians of the Galaxy".
Brandon Vezmar filed the claim for $17.31 last week. However, this Texas man has chose to tackle his date's rude behaviour - he has sued her for "constantly texting" during the movie they were watching together.
Leaving in her auto - in which they had driven in together on the date - Brandon was left stranded in the cinema.
Vezmar said he asked her to stop but she refused.
"She was behaving as if it was normal", he told Inside Edition.
The woman said on Tuesday she only texted two or three times with her friend who was having a fight with her boyfriend.
The woman did not wish to be named‚ the report continued‚ and she had no idea about the claim. The woman then left the theater and never returned.More news: Enda Kenny resigns as Irish Fine Gael party chief

"I had my phone low and I wasn't bothering anybody‚" she is quoted as saying.
"This is insane", she told the American-Statesman.
"The date just didn't work out", she told him during the reunion.
"I'm not a bad woman", she told the newspaper.
"While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant's behaviour is a threat to civilised society", the petition said.
The cinema where the dramatic scenes were played out has offered Vezmar a $17.31 gift certificate to resolve the case.
The freakish case has made worldwide news, and caught the attention of James Gunn, who wrote and directed Guardians.
