Doored... as a pedestrian.. backwards.

I'm walking down times square today with my gf on the road, because the sidewalks are completely packed with people. Traffic's not moving and this cabbie swings his door open right in front of me. I'm like, oh s**t, I almost got doored, whew! And the next thing I know, the door is coming at me and the cabbie gets out only to be knocked right back down into his car by the door. The door hit me in the arm and I grabbed it just as he slammed on the brakes.

That's new york for ya!
