Man ironed face when phone rang
A Polish man is regretting trying to impress his wife by doing the housework - after ironing his face when the phone rang.
Tomas Paczkowski, 32, from Elbag, was determined to show wife Lila that he was just as good around the home as she is.
"I decided to do the ironing while she was out at work, just to prove a point," he explained.
"Women are always going on about multi-tasking, so I set up the iron, opened a beer and put the boxing on the telly.
"Trouble was, I got so involved in the boxing that I wasn't really thinking about what I was doing.
"So when the phone rang I picked up the iron by mistake and pressed it to my ear. The pain was incredible."
And Mr Paczkowski added insult to injury when he sprinted to put cold water on the burn - and ran straight into the bathroom door.
"That gave me a black eye so now I look more like I've been in a boxing match instead of just watching one," he added.
Medics say he will make a full recovery from the burns - but Mr Paczkowski says he's off housework for good.
what do you think?
There are easier and less painful ways of getting out of doing the ironing.
Awwwww bless him. A good deed that went wrong.
It is also important not to drink beer while using a 180 C metal plate. You might notice some one hundred percent cotton garments have one hundred percent synthetic labels attached to them, then when you set the iron to cotton, the label melts onto the iron surface AND onto the one hundred percent cotton garment?
Adrian is this an admission I wonder?
Yes. I have sometimes completely melted synthetic labels onto cotton garments and onto the iron. It seems worse if the iron base plate is non-metallic ceramic. Oh! Now I remember. Even more irritating is when you set the iron to cotton or linen, accidentally touch a plastic button then the plastic is melted to the base plate and you have a blob of molten plastic button on a shirt.
Obviously, the caller didn't ring back after being hung up on - otherwise Mr. Paczkowski's other ear would no doubt be burnt too.
There ladies, proof ,us men shouldnt do the ironing.
Bet he was hard pressed doing that ironing :)
Just when the world was tiring of Polish jokes?........

If it had been an Irishman, he would no doubt have been using a Murphy Richards iron. Reminds me of the Irishman who fell out of the window when he was ironing his curtains.
Thinking of doing that myself, might get some of the creases out.
