WickerNipple: Thankfully with a pic attached to warn everyone else away.


37 year olds who dress like 19 year old douche bags should be enough of a warning...

Also, if he picked a movie that SHE would like, she probably wouldn't have texted through the whole thing.

I have to agree with the guy about asswipes who text in a movie theater.  But threatening to sue is a pretty dick move.
 
2017-05-19 12:08:45 PM  
He paid $17.31 for a valuable lesson.  He learned she was not the one.

Thomas Edison once said, "I have not failed.  I have learned 1000 ways not to make a light bulb."  So, this guy is like the Thomas Edison of relationships...except with bad publicity, and $17.31.
 
2017-05-19 12:10:28 PM  
Of course she learned the same lesson....and paid him $17.31 for the privilege.

In the end, the most important lesson here is that the movie was not that special.  It had a great start and just sort of floundered along.  I almost texted while watching it too.

He looks pretty much exactly as I pictured him:

Yeah, this behavior will get him married and out of his mothers basement real soon.

More assholes need to be made an example of.

I was at a chorus concert last night and a woman up front brought in a toddler who screamed the entire time, and was close enough to be picked up by the mics.

I've never wanted to hit a toddler before in my life.
 
2017-05-19 12:53:05 PM  
I hope she paid him with 1731 ass pennies.
 
2017-05-19 12:53:05 PM  
It seems like they were perfect for each other.  Maybe they are too narcissistic for it to work out.
 
2017-05-19 12:54:21 PM  
He's a douchebag.  She needs to be flung into the sun for texting during a movie.  Should have to gone to Alamo, they woulda kicked em both out.

These dickless MFers like this dude are all over subreddits like "RedPill" and they are both hysterical and scary as fark.
 
2017-05-19 12:55:06 PM  
Wait people actually watch movies with their dates? I swear I thought people just groped each other and made out. Or is that just during the honeymoon phase?
 
2017-05-19 12:55:08 PM  
He's going to learn a valuable lesson: the internet doesn't forget. Good luck with the rest of your life.
 
2017-05-19 12:55:28 PM  
They're both horrible people. Too bad things didn't work out they deserve each other.

I heard about this on the radio, where they did that annoying tease-the-story-to-keep-you-listening-through-the-commercials thing.

DJ: Why did a man sue his date after they went to the movies?
Me: Because he's a douchenugget?

*interminable bad radio commercials*

DJ:  A man from Texas...
Me: Figures.
DJ: ...is suing his date for $17.31 because she texted during the movie.
Me: Hey I was right.

2017-05-19 12:58:30 PM  
It's Texas. Lady is lucky they don't yet have a Stand your Ground law to deal with people using their phones in a movie theater.
 
2017-05-19 12:58:42 PM  
Well he got his 15 minutes of fame, so it worked out for him (plus 17 bucks).
 
2017-05-19 01:01:11 PM  
In his petition, Vezmar got into the minutiae of his date's texting habits during the movie.

Anyone else read "Minutiae" in Rockets voice, or was that just Me?


37 year old Hipster-wannabe... I hope you drown yourself in an IPA, asshole.

It isn't his fault she won't voice an opinion (or goes on surprise dates and then acts like a child if things aren't perfect).

If she went along knowing she didn't like/wasn't likely to like the movie she should have said something.
 
2017-05-19 01:01:39 PM  
Moments later, Cruz told Vezmar that she would be right back, after he asked her to stop texting and suggested she go outside.  She then left the theater and drove away, which Vezmar says left him without a ride.

Both parties are assholes, but she was about a 3 and he took it to eleventy.  I hope that 17 bucks was worth his face being splashed everywhere and probably never getting another date again.  It was a public service to single women everywhere, so there's that.

Stories like this are great, because you can find multiple angles to signal your virtue. For example, what offends me most isn't the fact that this tool would sue to get his movie money back, nor is it that the narcissistic princess apparently couldn't put her phone down for longer than 2 minutes. It's the fact that he took his date to a crappy movie.

There. Now everyone knows I don't like this movie, and I can feel superior to everyone that does.

Aww man, it's just small claims court. She wouldn't even have needed a lawyer to go embarrass him. Hell I bet a ton of lawyers would have done it for free.

This moron has absolutely no problem doing dumb things that get him made fun of everywhere. He's the same idiot who wrote a "Why I'm leaving Chicago" letter that the Tribune published and everyone laughed at him.

Guess that wasn't enough ridicule so he felt the need to do something even dumber to take it nationwide.

 With minuscule organs of sex.

Texting in a movie is a (very) minor annoyance. This guy is a giant douche. I'm glad the woman made it out after a quarter of a date and didn't get roped in to "seeing his apartment" and "collection of knives"

holy heck.

/how could you tell that I haven't been to a movie theater lately?
 
2017-05-19 01:09:36 PM  
 I'm guessing he probably needed that 17 bucks as he dresses kinda like a pizza delivery driver.    Should have taken her to Alamo Drafthouse.  At the start of every movie, they threaten to throw your ass out if you text.

She was his ride and she left him there.  That is grade a asshole.

Sounds like he's apparently one of those MRA douchebags. Via AV Club:

"I think the implicit understanding on her part-in fact, I know-was that this was a date, the ticket was a gift, and she didn't owe anything. That was an assumption she made, because she believes that those are the rules of the game. She has taken advantage of that. She's taken advantage of someone else's courtesy and generosity."

and

"When asked about critics who called his actions regarding Textgate an act of entitlement, Vezmar was quick to dismiss the very notion in a message to Chicagoist. "Entitled? ENTITLED TO WHAT? To buy other people things? To not be able to enjoy a movie? To be disrespected? The premise of the question is absurd, and only the most hopeless Progressive could even conjure it up. This is man hate WRIT LARGE," he wrote to us."

I'm a filmmaker who treats movie theaters like religious people treat churches, and this guy sounds like such a douchenozzle that he has me sympathizing with someone who texts during movies.

A fetching young lass from Hong Kong
Told her date "I think you are wrong,
To say my vagina's
The biggest in China
Just because of your mean little dong."
