The following is something I found on David's Farm Blog - I hope he doesn't mind me borrowing it, but I thought it was very clever and oh so true!!! I changed a few of the entries to suit my "small town" which only has a population of about 590! Our town has a pub, a cafe, a post office, a fuel station, a grain receival depot, footy ground, netball court, 4 tennis courts, a small primary school, a couple of churches, a community hall and that's about it! But more importantly we also have lots of wonderful country folk who live in the town or nearby on farms!!
You Know You’re From A Small Town When:
• The local phone book has only one yellow page.
• Third Street is on the edge of town.
• The “road hog” in front of you on Main Street is a farmer’s tractor.
• You leave your jacket on the back of the chair in the cafe, and when you go back the next day, it’s still there on the same chair.
• You don’t signal turns because everyone knows where you’re going anyway.
• No social events can be scheduled when the hall floor is being varnished.
• You call a wrong number and they supply you with the correct one.
• Everyone knows all the news before it’s published; they just read the hometown paper to see whether the publisher got it right.
• A “Night on the Town” takes only 2 minutes.
• You have to name six surrounding towns to explain to people where you’re from.
• Headline news is who grew the biggest vegetable this year.
• You can name everyone you went to school with.
• Anyone you want can be found at the pub.
• Directions are given out using the pub as reference.
