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.
