Thought since the small town one was so popular I would take a swing and see if this would be popular.


You Know You Live in a "big" town when....

1. Their are more people on your block than several small towns put together.

2. 34th street means your 1/5 of the way through the city

3. Your town is so big that the phone company divides the book into neighborhoods

4. you leave something at a local restaurant and by the time you notice it's gone what you left has already gone 50 miles

5. You risk hitting atleast 4things if you don't use your turn signals

6. Social Events must take place at "Stadium" size places because of the turn out

7. If you call a wrong number the police show up at your house wondering what you was doing.

8. News reporters are celebrities because are constantly on air

9. Your life revolves around traffic

10. Your closest neighbor can hear what your saying in the living room from their house

11. Your school district has it's own police force

12. Going across town involves connecting to several different transportatin corridors


Take it away.............................................. ............

You buy coffee from the same place every morning at the exact same time and typically from the same server/cashier and yet never become "a regular" or even catch a glimmer of recognition on his or her face.

Small town directions are so more user friendly.

Go down this street until you see a red tractor next to a white barn...
