Hey 3.5 readers.
Please put down all 3.5 of your phones. No, seriously! This is a very important post and yes, you! Even you, .5th reader with your half a phone, stop texting!
Have you ever had a rude date? Perhaps a date who texted a little too much?
Well, one guy isn’t taking it lying down. According to CNN (and many other news outlets) a dude by the name of Brandon Vezmar has sued his date for $17.31, claiming that she texted too much on her phone during a showing of Guardians of the Galaxy, thus ruining the experience.
Do have questions? I do. Here’s mine:
#1 – Is this real? Is this some kind of publicity stunt?
#2 – Did he get rejected? Is this like a dude sticking up for every man who had to shell out money on a date only to get nowhere? (If so, God bless you sir. I’ve always felt there should be a law that if a woman rejects you, she should be required to refund all the money you spent on her during any and all dates within 30 days of the rejection or else be sentenced to life in solitary confinement. Come to think of it, I’m going to start working with President Trump to turn this into a Federal law.)
#3 – Is it me or does $17.31 seem steep for a film? Was it in IMAX? Was it for both tickets? Was popcorn involved? If it’s for both tickets, is he claiming that her texting ruined even his movie watching experience? Can he recover the cost of her ticket if she doesn’t feel her texting ruined her movie watching experience?
#4 – Is it rude to text during a date? I read that the woman claims she was texting a friend who needed her.
#5 – Do you think this guy is a hero to every man who was ever disrespected by a date? Or, should he have just sucked it up and realized that part of dating means eating the costs of dates that go nowhere?
