Reasons you know you live in a rural area/town

Posted on | September 10, 2003 |

Having lived and traveled in the middle of nowhere often since being unemployed, with no further adieu, I present the top five reasons you know you live in a rural area/town.

  1. You can tell which way the wind is blowing by the direction the cattle and horses are facing.

  2. More people are moving around at 4am than 10pm.
  3. You needn’t worry about leaving the window in the bathroom exposed– the closest neighbor is a mile or more away, and no binoculars are that good.
  4. Door locks are rusty and may not work because they haven’t been used since, um, they were installed.
  5. You know how far you have walked because you just walked a section line.
