Packaging That Can’t Be Opened

Two days ago, my kitchen scissors broke.

I suspect, they had been in our kitchen for at least twenty years and had stainless steel blades and red handles.

Usually, I kept them on my kitchen work-top to be handy to open the packaging, that seems to arrive tightly-wrapped around everything you buy.

So I bought a replacement pair in Sainsburys for just two pounds.

But I then had the problem of how to open the packaging, as after all my scissors were broken.

In the end, I used a small hacksaw.

  1. Packaging like that is very very difficult to open – and as you say, a bit of a problem if the scissors are a replacement pair. Neil has a very savage looking knife which gets into parcels for me. He uses it, my hands aren’t steady enough for me to use it safely.

  2. The instructions on how to open the box are inside the box. LOL
