    The "Caution Dead-End" sign on Main street is no whimsical joke...
    Either stop or drive straight into some guys house.

    My wife grew up in rural Western NY. She knows this stuff. I was born in NYC but grew up on Long Island, where it was one suburban town after another. I was in one of the smaller school district, with a graduating class of 425. I knew everyone or at least I think I remember knowing everyone, at least a little bit.

    33) You know all the dogs in town by name and they always wag their tail as you pass each other in the street.

    34) You are often run off the road by a combine.

    I got stuck behind a tractor/combine/farm equipment was not only an acceptable but a common reason for being late to school/work.

    35) Unless your family has lived in the town 2 generations you're "new" or "outsiders".

    BV's only got one stop light and a bajillion stop signs. My boss chewed me out for running one once and I told her I was here before it was. (Well I was!)
