(CNN) — A Texas man is demanding a refund from his date after she texted while they were at the movies in Austin.

Brandon Vezmar filed a petition at a small claims court seeking $17.31 in damages.

"After the movie started, defendant activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages, in direct violation of the theater's policy, " his petition states.

Vezmar accuses his date of "adversely affecting the viewing experience" of moviegoers.

"While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant's behavior is a threat to civilized society," his petition says.

Vezmar told the newspaper that he met the woman online, and that it was their first date.

"It was kind of a first date from hell," he said, adding that texting at the movies is, "like, one of my biggest pet peeves."

Well I support him … last time I went to the movies with Rizks, he kept texting his beloved all through the movie

Lol. I had a similar situation, I met a man in Austin, Texas at a horse race. He invited me to ride horses, and after a quarrel he demanded the money spent. Crazy.
