I've watched 007 skyfall. Had one scene, that Agent was driving and 007 sat beside her. She drove very fast and then car side mirror was removed because crashed with something beside the road.
after that 007 said:
"You weren't using it?"
instantly (after mirror was removed about 1 sec - 3 sec)
Can you explain to me why he use this tense for this situation and do you have any alternative sentences for this situation?
