Woman Sued For $17.31 For Texting During ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Confronts Date

Where to Stream

Guardians of the Galaxy

The “first date from hell” that made headlines earlier this week after a man sued his date for the price of a movie ticket for texting during Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 may finally have reached a resolution. Yesterday, Inside Edition brought the man and woman involved onto their show to put an end to this frivolous feud, and initially, it did not seem hopeful. The man in question, 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar, recounted the terrible date to Inside Edition, clearly still upset about the whole thing: “She was behaving as if this behavior was perfectly normal,” he lamented. “So much so that I actually thought to myself, ‘who does this’?”

The woman, who had previously asked to remain unnamed, is Crystal Cruz. She met Vezmar through the online dating app Bumble, and the two went to see the film at a movie theater in Austin, Texas. The show took Vezmar back to the scene of the crime, where he relived the so-called horrors of the evening. He claimed that about 15 minutes into the film, she just kept texting and reading messages on her phone, and that she left the date (and left him “stranded”) after he asked her to stop. Cruz, however, defended herself, saying that her best friend had texted her to make sure that she was okay, and that she didn’t feel her texting was obnoxious at all.

“Now most guys would be like, ‘whatever, not a good match, move on’, but not Brandon. The next day, he sent Crystal a text demanding his $17.31 back,” said the reporter. He’s wasn’t wrong there… Brandon’s reaction soon became serious after Crystal laughed off his text demanding compensation.

After the duo both told their sides of the story to Inside Edition, they were finally brought together at the scene of the crime – the movie theater. As a smug Vezmar asked what she wanted to say to him, Cruz (clearly as baffled as the rest of us on the escalation of this insane matter), told him “the date just didn’t work out, and I would love to give you your $17.31 if you can just leave this alone.”

Vezmar accepted Cruz’ “apology” and proceeded to count the money to make sure it was all there, and told her he would withdraw the court case and this was “settled”.

Let’s hope Crystal’s next Bumble date is better than this one.
