A guy invited a woman out to the movies on a first date, but she texted for 15 minutes during the film (OMG!). But just like her refusal to stop texting during the movie, she declined.

The pair began to watch the movie at the Barton Creek Square theater when she pulled out her phone and began texting someone, Vezmar told the Statesman. I had my phone low and I wasn't bothering anybody. Unsatisfied with her response, he contacted the woman's younger sister to try and get his money back (the woman is considering filing a protective order).

A Texas man has filed a lawsuit against a woman who texted during a date at a movie theater.

The 35-year-old date was contacted by the Austin Statesman but seems not to be taking the matter seriously. The couple met online and were on a first, and it appears last, date, the Statesman reported.

"It wasn't like constant texting", the woman continued. My best friend needed me right away and you said my phone was driving you insane then I felt so uncomfortable.

"While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant's behavior is a threat to civilized society", Vezmar states in his petition. She hopes he can eventually move past this.

Now the film's director James Gunn has weighed in.
