Man sues woman for $17.31 movie ticket after bad date

ROUND ROCK, Texas — A Texas man is suing a woman he went on a date with for the price of a movie ticket after he says she texted through the film and left him at the theater.

Brandon Vezmar filed the claim for $17.31 last week. The 37-year-old tells the Austin American-Statesman he met the woman online and they went to see “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” on May 6. He says the 35-year-old woman refused to stop texting. Vezmar says he suggested she step outside to text. The woman then left the theater and never returned.

The woman tells the newspaper Vezmar asked her later for the cost of the ticket but she refused because “he took me out on a date.”

Brazilian judge demands to be called ‘Your Honor’ at bakery

SÃO PAULO — Brazil’s top judicial oversight board has decided it won’t sanction a judge who allegedly got angry at a bakery cafe waiter and demanded the man address him as “Your Honor.”

Witnesses say Judge Dilermando Motta Pereira was upset because the waiter did not put ice in his cup. The judge allegedly yelled at the employee, grabbed his shoulder and ordered the waiter to call him “Your Honor.”

Chief Justice Carmen Lucia said in late Tuesday’s decision that Pereira should have been more careful, but did not deserve to be punished for the 2014 incident in the northeastern city of Natal.

Pereira acknowledged the actions but said he was mistreated by the waiter and complained other clients interfered.
