(Scroll down for video) A man decided to file a lawsuit against his rude date for excessive use of her cell phone while watching a movie, according to court documents in Texas.

According to the lawsuit filed with the Travis County small claims court, the 35-year-old woman who was identified as Crystal, accompanied 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar of Austin, to a movie as part of their first date.

Vezmar had purchased two movie tickets for “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.”

After the movie began, Crystal activated her phone about 20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages, which is in direct violation of the theater’s policy.

This activity adversely affected the viewing experience of Vezmar and others. Upon being asked to stop texting, Crystal left the theater and did not return.

Vezmar later asked Crystal to give him back the money he spent on the date, but she refused, saying that he took her out on a date.

She also said: “Oh my God, this is crazy.” Vezmar is seeking $17.31 in compensation for Crystal’s movie ticket and slice of pizza.

Vezmar told the court that Crystal’s behavior is a threat to civilized society. Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League offered Vezmar the $17 if he agrees to drop the lawsuit.

However, Vezmar declined the offer, saying that he is going after the woman because of the principle of the matter.
