Having Trouble With The Order of Things

Today I had to go to the store to get a pair of scissors.

Then, when we tried to open them, we realized we needed scissors to open them

They are in a bulletproof pack. Commercial grade plastic. Built to outlast roaches and Twinkies.

So which comes first? The Chicken or the Egg?

Do you buy the scissors to open the scissor pack?

Such is life
