They say everything is bigger in Texas, and today we may have met Texas’ biggest cheapskate.
Brandon Vezmar, the owner of a communication consulting firm filed a claim for $17.31 last week. The 37-year-old tells the Austin American-Statesman he met a woman online and they went to see “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” on May 6 and he wants his money returned.
It’s safe to assume the consulting biz isn’t doing too hot.
“It was kind of a first date from hell,” he said. About 15 minutes after the movie began, Vezmar said, his date started texting on her phone. “This is like one of my biggest pet peeves.”
He wrote in the court filing, “While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant’s behavior is a threat to civilized society.”
A first date from hell due to the girl texting? Has this guy ever dated anybody ever? Based on the fact he not only chose the movies as a first date, but also voluntarily picked “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” I’m assuming not. Texting is part of our culture. Sure, texting during a movie is a red flag for coolness but it has become more of a common courtesy aversion, not a reason to sue…But why was she texting? Did he ask?
Nope, according to reports he suggested if she needed to text she would take it outside, so she did, and never returned. But what makes it even better? They took her car to the movies and she left without him. Surprised this dude isn’t asking for the uber fare too.
Let me be clear, ANY guy that requires a pick up on the first date and chooses the movies as the destination is a wet mop waiting to spill. That’s not news.
As for the lawsuit? The movie theatre offered Vexmar a gift certificate for $17.31 to shut his ass up.
P.S. Just realized this dude is dancing in the rain of his 15-minutes of fame
And I’m going to assume he is a Trump fan…
He will apparently be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight via Skype. Soak it up, Vezmar, soak. it. up.
