The following conflict is about a fight that arises between two people who have gotten in a car crash in a busy intersection. Corinne and Alex are both furious that their cars have been totaled, and neither of them are willing to pay for all the damage as they both believe the crash was not caused by them. Corrine had been turning right on a red light, although it was legally permissible. Alex was was turning left on green light, giving him the right of way, however his left directional was not on. Corrine and Alex argue as to who was responsible for the accident. After much yelling and verbal fighting, they realize they are being unproductive. They decide to listen to each other's point of view and come to the conclusion that they are both at fault. They decide they will pay for their own damages.

IT'S NOT MY FAULT! I HAD THE GREEN LIGHT!
ARE YOU KIDING ME!? WHERE WAS YOUR SIGNAL?
LOOK WERE NOT GOING TO GET ANYWHERE IF WE KEEP BLAMING EACH OTHER. WE NEED TO HEAR EACH OTHER OUT AND THEN WE CAN SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
I'LL ADMIT I DIDN'T HAVE MY SIGNAL ON AND I THOUGHT YOU WOULD YIELD TO ME. IT IS PARTLY MY FAULT.
I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING STRAIGHT, SO I THOUGHT I COULD GO. I SHOULD'VE BEEN MORE CAUTIOUS, SO IT WAS MY FAULT AS WELL.
OKAY, I THINK THAT IS ONLY FAIR.
HOW ABOUT WE PAY FOR OUR OWN DAMAGES SINCE WE ARE BOTH RESPONSIBLE?
