Man mistakes hot iron for phone

ELBLAG, Poland, - A Polish man said he was distracted by boxing on TV and mistook a hot iron for the telephone, burning the side of his head.

Tomasz Paczkowski, 32, of Elblag said he was helping his wife with housework while he was off work for a few days when he made the error, the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

"After breakfast I started to work. I turned on the boxing channel on the TV, opened a beer and started ironing," he said.

"I was really getting involved in the boxing and was not really thinking about what I was doing," Paczkowski said. "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."

Paczkowski said he was further injured when his head struck the doorframe of the bathroom while he was running to pour cold water in his head.

The man said he will continue to help his wife with the ironing, but not while watching boxing on TV.

“And for all the good these ‘suppository’ pills do, I might as well stuff them up my ... or maybe I did.”
“Magda, come help me find my hearing aid!” added the flustered Polish man, pulling a pill out of his ear.

An epidemic in Poland, avoid visiting the country. Yesterday on these pages there was a report of one such incident, now there is another!

A Polish man is looking to buy a saw to cut down some trees in his back yard. He goes to a chainsaw shop and asks about various chainsaws. The dealer tells him, “Look, I have a lot of models, but why don’t you save yourself a lot of time and aggravation and get the top-of-the-line model. This chainsaw will cut a hundred cords of wood for you in one day.”

So the Pole takes the chainsaw home and begins working on the trees. After cutting for several hours and only cutting two cords, he decides to quit. He thinks there is something wrong with the chainsaw. “How can I cut for hours and only cut two cords?”, the man asks himself. “I will begin first thing in the morning and cut all day”, he tells himself. So, the next morning he gets up at 4 in the morning and cuts, and cuts, and cuts till nightfall, and he only manages to cut five cords.

The man is convinced this is a bad saw. “The dealer told me it would cut one hundred cords of wood in a day, no problem. I will take this saw back to the dealer.” The very next day the man brings the saw back to the dealer and explains the problem. The dealer, baffled by the Pole’s claim, removes the chainsaw from the case. The dealer says, “Huh, it looks fine.” Then the dealer starts the chainsaw, to which the Pole responds, “What’s that noise?”

I was busy on a phone call while also holding a banana I had just peeled. Yes, I put the banana to my ear by mistake.

But that is not as bad as...

...making a call on you regular phone to find your cell phone then picking up the cell phone and saying hello, to myself. Yikes.

Now if I could just find where I put my car keys.

Just think what would have happened if the caller called back? What a hot head letting off steam. Press on buddy! I’m glad he got that ironed out! His complexion is so smooth.....no wrinkles! There are way to many punch lines here.

This reminds me of a joke I heard in 4th grade: How did Helen Keller burn her face? She answered the iron. If it really happened to this dude, I’m sorry.

I think its more likely that his wife threw the iron at him because he was watching TV instead of doing housework.

You beat me to it. In the pictures he has the iron in his right hand but he burned the left side of his face.

He woke up yesterday and his ears were burning. A friend said that was a sign someone was talking about him.

He woke up this morning and his crotch was burning. He figured it was a good sign...

A Polish man said he was distracted by boxing on TV and mistook a hot iron for the telephone, burning the side of his head.

He then burned his fingers trying to dial 9-1-1.

“Suddenly the phone rang and I mucked things up....

The man said he will continue to help his wife with the ironing, but not while watching boxing on TV.”

I really have to give this guy credit. He takes responsibility for his own error and then talks about what HE is going to do differently to ensure he does not make the mistake again!

I found my car keys. I was holding them in my hand. Looked everywhere. Couldn't find them so decided to just leave without them and walk to the store. Noticed I had 'em when I was locking the front door on the way out.
