Any of you folks ever have this happen?

I've never actually been hit by a car door, but I have had several near misses, and one guy actually tried to "door" me on purpose.

Getting doored on an urban commute has to be one of my recurring nightmares.
Yeah, that would stinkbigdave

Never been doored, but I have to say that if I ride close to parked cars, I keep an eye out for anything moving inside the car... cuz it could pop out at any moment. That's not to say I can avoid them all, but it helps.

I can't imagine Tyler was thinking about that at all while warming up. Bummer.
