Man burns his head after mistaking iron for phone

Recommended Posts

Hum    6,928

Tomasz Paczkowski from the northern Polish town of Elblag now sports bandages around his head after a request from his wife to help with the housework while he enjoyed a few days off work backfired.

?My wife had gone to work and asked me to help with the housework,? the 32-year old told the Polish newspaper Fakt. ?After breakfast I started to work. I turned on the boxing channel on the TV, opened a beer and started ironing.

?I was really getting involved in the boxing and was not really thinking about what I was doing,? he continued. ?Suddenly the phone rang and I mucked things up: instead of grabbing the receiver I picked up the iron and put it to my ear.? :|

Mr Paczkowski said a burning sensation on his ear soon made him realise his mistake. To compound his misfortune a dash to the bathroom to cool his burn with water resulted in his head hitting a door frame, causing an injury just above the left eye.

As a result of his accident he said he would give up watching boxing on the television but would continue to iron.

...opened a beer and started ironing.

How many beers did he have? Sounds like too many.

I think you would be able to tell the difference in weight and shape between an Iron and a Phone no matter how involved in the TV you were

Also the running into the door-frame bit sounds like they're trying to invent a comedy sketch story

Finished breakfast and then opened a beer. I'm seeing the reason why he mistook an iron for a phone now.

This should be used as a cautionary tale the world over about the real reasons us Men leave the housework to the much more capable women, its not laziness its H&S dear ladies - safety first and all that jazz :)

With the screen size increase of some of the newer smart phones, an iron can become of a simular size :p

I thought there would be Polish jokes. Cause who the hell mistakes an iron for a phone? Unless on Poland phones are shaped like irons...
