And I thought my 45-minute commute was a pain.
39-year-old Pawel Swierczynski of North Easton, Massachusetts experienced a much more, well, painful kind of pain when a 250-lb. cast-iron sewer grate went crashing through his windshield, and ended up sitting in his backseat. Swierczynski’s being treated for his injuries, and the Massachusetts Highway Department is busy welding down all the state’s catch basin grates as a temporary solution.
I may never complain about traffic again. I’ll be all set as long as a giant hunk of iron doesn’t take my face off.
… But if it does, I’ll take comfort in knowing that Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston will now perform face transplants.
