In a Texas court, there is a strange story about a guy named Brandon Clarke Vezmar who filed a bad date lawsuit. After a movie date, he went on that turned into a big mess.

This all began when Vezmar took a woman, whom he had met online, to watch “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” at an Austin theater on May 6.

But, why would someone do that? Find out below!

The Reason Behind the Lawsuit

He says the woman he went with couldn’t stop texting during the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” He got really annoyed because she kept looking at her phone over and over, which broke the theater’s rules.

When he asked her to stop, she left and didn’t come back. So, he decided to sue her to get back the money he spent on the tickets, which was $17.31. He thought her texting was ruining the movie and was bad for everyone watching.

According to court documents and reports from the Austin American-Statesman, Vezmar claimed that his date incessantly “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages” after the movie commenced. He asserted that her actions not only violated the theater’s policy but also infringed upon his and other patrons’ enjoyment of the film.

A lot of people talked about the story online, and some thought it was funny, while others were surprised. Then, the boss of a movie theater chain said he would give Vezmar a gift card to make the lawsuit go away. He thought the lawsuit was silly too.

This whole thing made people think about how we should behave in public places like theaters. It showed how sometimes small things can turn into big problems. And it reminded us that life can be pretty strange sometimes, especially when it comes to dating and going to the movies.

Throughout history, there have been numerous cases that defy logic, challenge common sense, and leave us scratching our heads in disbelief.

Does it Get weirder Than a Lawsuit Against Himself?

In 1992, Stella Liebeck sued McDonald’s after she spilled hot coffee on herself, suffering severe burns. Liebeck claimed the coffee was too hot and that McDonald’s should have warned her. The case gained widespread attention, with many ridiculing Liebeck for what seemed like a frivolous lawsuit.

Other than that In 2005, Robert Lee Brock, an inmate in Virginia, filed a lawsuit against himself for $5 million. Brock claimed that he violated his own civil rights and religious beliefs by getting arrested. A judge dismissed the case, noting that Brock was not legally capable of suing himself.

In the end, these weird stories reminds us that sometimes small things can turn into big problems. It’s a funny example of how strange life can be sometimes, especially when it comes to dating and going to the movies.
