A man is suing his date for texting during Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.

Yep, the man filed a petition in small claims court in Travis County, Texas. He is asking for $17.31 – the price of the movie ticket.

According to the American-Statesman, 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar from Austin met the woman online before they went on their first date to watch the Marvel movie.

Director James Gunn has even chimed in, hilariously tweeting: "Why stop at suing? She deserves jail time!"

The man taking the legal action said: "It was kind of a first date from hell. This is like one of my biggest pet peeves."

In the claim, Vezmar alleged that his date "activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages".

He said he asked her to stop but she refused, so he said she could go outside to text. She apparently left the cinema and never returned.

She also reportedly left in her car, which they had driven to the cinema together, leaving Vezmar without a ride.

The man says he texted her a few days later asking for the price of a ticket, but she refused to pay it.

The woman, 35, told the American-Statesman that she didn't know about the claim against her.

"Oh my God. This is crazy," she said. "I had my phone low and I wasn't bothering anybody. It wasn't like constant texting.

"I'm not a bad woman. I just went out on a date."

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

Here's hoping he has better luck at Guardians Vol 3.
