We’re not living in the 1950s anymore, so guys should help out with household chores. No woman is gonna date a lazy bastard who expects her to cook and clean 100% of the time. That said, Tomas Paczkowski of Poland (pictured above with facial bandages masking his domestic shame) might want to let his wife do the ironing.

According to The Sun, Paczkowski tried to impress his spouse by steaming the wrinkles out of their clothes. Unfortunately, he drank beer and watched a boxing match on TV at the same time, perhaps because he believed two manly activities would cancel out one effeminate activity. And in his excitement, he pressed the hot iron against his face.

“Women are always going on about multi-tasking, so I set up the iron, opened a beer and put the boxing on the telly,” Paczkowski explained. “Trouble was, I got so involved in the boxing that I wasn’t really thinking about what I was doing… The pain was incredible.”

Oh yeah, as he rushed to the bathroom for cold water, he got a black eye from accidentally smashing his burned face into a door. Miraculously, Paczkowski won’t be disfigured long-term. As for housework, he says, “I really respect what my wife does now.”
