A Texas man is suing a woman he went on a date with for the price of a movie ticket after he said she texted through the film and left him at the theater.

Brandon Vezmar filed the claim for $17.31 last week. The 37-year-old told the Austin American-Statesman he met the woman online and they went to see "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2" on May 6. He said the 35-year-old woman refused to stop texting. Vezmar said he suggested she step outside to text. The woman then left the theater and never returned.

Vezmar said the date was ruined and the woman violated theater policy.

"At this point I decided to file the lawsuit here's why, no personal responsibility. It was the friend, it was the phone, it was you. It's nonsense, nonsense," he said.

The woman said Vezmar's behavior made her extremely uncomfortable and she left for her own safety.

The woman told the newspaper Vezmar asked her later for the cost of the ticket, but she refused because "he took me out on a date."
