My town has two sentences.

Also two, but it could be edited down to one.

You guys live in towns that show up in wikipedia or on maps? We have to use a different towns name to even get mail. We went to get a cell phone and were told our address did not exist, and had to register it with the cell phone stores address. The fun parts of rural life, they sometimes make living modern very difficult.


According to ups FedEx Comcast and Verizon my house doesn't exist. It's been here since the 20s but the address doesn't exist

My mail goes to a post office that is 20 miles away. We did have a post office in town but it closed down a few years ago.

Um-hum. I've heard that there are vast areas of Kansas that don't exist; maybe even all of Saskatchewan.

I guess but it sure makes it a pain in the rear to get any packages delivered.  I have to have my stuff shipped to my mom and dads house that I can see out my side window in the fall/winter(from my house that doesn't exist)

 

My house was built by the last owners parents.  He didn't have cable, there was still an antenna on the roof.  He had a telephone, power, and water.  I bet he didn't have a cell phone.  I don't imagine he had many packages shipped to his house, I think that all added up that the address just simply wasn't used for many things.

My small town. Slate river, ontario.

Population of 5,000 or so including the other scattered communities... Lots of the population of my small town is dutch, almost all of them are cousins.... But they're all good people.

also, if you're from a small town, you've probably seen a guy riding a tractor going places in no big hurry. I was that guy in slate river....
