Men, listen, there are a few hard and fast rules when it comes to our ever increasingly weird world of dating: before the first date, you can't go deeper than seventy weeks back in her Instagram feed; during the first date, you pay the bill; after the first date, you can't sue. So if you take anything from this wonderful, terrific story, let it be that.
The theme of the song is essentially that women sometimes need to have their needs attended through gentle, romantic sexual encounters. First, a story, and stop me if you've heard this one before: Man takes woman on date. Man, unhappy with the texting, sues woman for the cost of the date. Fifteen minutes into the movie, the date begins texting. It didn't work out, and she was rude, but maybe just let it go.It's a tale as old as yesterday, when it was reported in the 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar went to the movies with a woman he met online, and then later filed a petition in a small claims court asking for the price of the movie ticket (.31) after he said she "activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages." The petition stated that "while damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant’s behavior is a threat to civilized society." When reached for comment, the alleged threat to society (the woman) said, "Oh my god" and "This is crazy" and "I'm not a bad woman."We could let the courts settle this, but since she's employing the same defense Donald Trump used when he told James Comey that Michael Flynn was a "good guy," we'll go with the POTUS's logic: Fuck the courts! It quickly becomes, in Brandon's mind, "a first date from hell" since texting during a movie is one of his "biggest pet peeves." The "first date from hell"/"threat to society" defended herself thusly: “I had my phone low and I wasn’t bothering anybody.”]—ought to be sent to the moon, especially when they're audacious enough to presume they know whether or not they're bothering other people. " Or more of a relatively commonplace pitfall of a date in 2017? There's an entire endless carousel of women out there you can take to movies that don't have Chris Pratt in them.That's cool with me It's not my favorite But I'll do it for you What's your favorite dish?It’s a balmy night in Manhattan’s financial district, and at a sports bar called Stout, everyone is Tindering. These are things that don't come across during Tinder small talk, and don't come across while seated on adjacent cushions in a dark movie theater.
