You would be absolutely mortified wouldn't you!?

Suprisingly, he still got the business! Has made me wary of them ever since.

First, really glad you're OK. Accidents SUCK!

As far as airbags go, I never had one go off, but wish I had. Was in a '58 Mercedes, pre airbag, damn even pre seatbelt I think, and got hit head-on.

Put a head-sized hole in the windshield--with my head, of course. Without getting too much into gory details, got my face ripped open and my knees jammed into the dash.

I was indeed mortified! I'm a life-long fan of seatbelts and airbags.
