Wow! I never thought that I would learn such important things in just one sentence! It just seemed a simple sentence but many things were wrong in that. Thank you so much to Lewis Neidhardt. Additional thanks for extending the emotional courtesy. I just got an unwanted divorce. I was addressing that sentence to my son. Thanks again.

Sorry to hear that, Ash. The subject of your sentence is 'doors', so you need to use the plural 'have'. I would also use 'to' rather than 'on'. 'On' sounds like you got your leg caught in the door as it was closing.
