Just days after breaking up with one woman for another, it's probably best not to employ the former's services as a dentist. Though, to 45-year-old Marek Olszewski's credit, no one could have expected what would ensue.
Anna Mackowiak, 34, is under investigation for medical malpractice and could face three years in jail after giving her ex-boyfriend a heavy dose of anaesthetic and pulling out all of his teeth when he turned up at her surgery with a toothache. She apparently sent him on his way none the wiser afterwards, still numb in the face and completely wrapped in bandages.
This all happened in their town of their town of Wroclaw, Poland, but "a woman scorned" is a familiar cross-cultural universal.
"I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions," she remarked, according to the Daily Mail. "But when I saw him lying there I just thought, 'What a bas*ard.'"
Olszewski explained how it occurred in his point of view: "I knew something was wrong because when I woke up I couldn’t feel any teeth and my jaw was strapped up with bandages...She told me my mouth was numb and I wouldn’t be able to feel anything for a while and that the bandage was there to protect the gums, but that I would need to see a specialist."
"I didn’t have any reason to doubt her, I mean I thought she was a professional," he said.
"But when I got home I looked in the mirror and couldn’t f****** believe it. The b**** had emptied my mouth."
And if that's not bad enough, Olszewski's new girlfriend has apparently dumped him because she doesn't want a toothless boyfriend.
"And I’m going to have to pay a fortune on getting indents or something," he concluded resignedly.
