Picture it, just off of Times Square, a bit after 7AM... dedicated commuter oboeguy steps out of the bagel shop with a muffin and a bottle of Gatorade Propel. He begins to unfold his trusty Dahon, having folded it not five minutes before to get into the crowded shop. He takes in the scene, deciding if he can make the next light to cross Times Square and what does he hear but the sound of a car door being smashed by a fast moving truck! Yes, my friends, a doorer today instead of taking out an unwitting cyclist today nearly killed himself with his own stupidity.
Feel pity for the owner of the car service car which got smashed, but hope along with your friend oboeguy that he sues the pants off door-man if door-man doesn't pony-up for his stupidity. The truck driver should suffer no ill -- it was some bullet-proof city department of sanitation or other truck.
