While reading I came across with this phrasal line ' fender-bender ' It was
actually reffering to an accident in this context, " I can't believe the damage
is going to cost me 8000 bucks. it was just a fender bender "
Is that mean, a person though met with a major accident but sustained minor injuries ?
Can anyone kindly explain the exact meaning of the words and the other context where this line can be used ?
Thanks in advance .
A "fender bender" is a minor automobile accident. The damage is typically minor and is limited to the car(s) involved (i.e., no human injuries).
The person in your sentence is expressing surprise that the cost of repairing the damage from a minor accident is going to be quite high --- much higher than he/she expected.
Hello, Mr. Philly
Thanks a lot for your detailed explanation.
