Those who grew up in small towns will laugh when they read this. Those who didn't will be in disbelief and won't understand how true it is.



1.) You can name everyone you graduated with.



2.) You know what 4-H means.



3.) You went to parties at a pasture, barn, gravel pit, or in the middle of a dirt road. On Monday you could always tell who was at the party because of the scratches on their legs from running through the woods when the party was busted.

(See #6)

4.) You used to 'drag' Main .



5.) Most people went by a nickname.



6.) You scheduled parties around the schedules of different police officers, because you knew which ones would bust you and which ones wouldn't.



7.) You could never buy cigarettes because all the store clerks knew how old you were (and if you were old enough, they'd tell your parents anyhow.) Besides, where would you get the money.



8.) When you did find somebody old enough and brave enough to by cigarettes, you still had to go out into the country and drive on back roads to smoke them.



9.) You knew which section of the ditch you would find the beer your buyer dropped off.



10.) It was cool to date somebody from the neighboring town.



11.) The whole school went to the same party after graduation.



12.) You didn't give directions by street names but rather by references. Turn by Nelson's house, to 2 blocks to Anderson 's, and it's four houses left of the track field.



13.) The golf course had only 9 holes.



14.) You couldn't help but date a friend's ex-boyfriend's/ girlfriend.



15.) Your car stayed filthy because of the dirt roads, and you will never own a dark vehicle for this reason.



16.) The town next to you was considered 'trashy' or 'snooty' but was actually just like your town.



17.) You referred to anyone with a house newer then 1950 as the 'rich' people.



18.) The people in the 'big city' dressed funny, and then you picked up the trend 2 years later.



19.) Anyone you wanted could be found at the local gas station or the carwash.



20.) You saw at least one friend a week driving a tractor through town or one of your friends driving a grain truck to school occasionally.



21.) The gym teacher suggested you haul hay for the summer to get stronger.



22.) Directions were given using THE stop light as a reference.



23.) When you decided to walk somewhere for exercise, 5 people would pull over and ask if you wanted a ride.



24.) Your teachers called you by your older sibling's names.



25.) Your teachers remembered when they taught your parents.



26.) You could charge at any local store or write checks without any ID.



27.) There was no McDonalds.



28.) The closest mall was over an hour away.



29.) It was normal to see an old man riding through town on a riding lawn mower.



30.) You've pee'd in a cornfield or a pasture.



31.) You laughed your butt off reading this because you know it is true!!!

:) As a teenager I moved from Vancouver to the middle of Saskatchewan for a few years to a town of about 500 people. Many of those list items I remember vividly!

We had a bridge replaced in the county a few years back.... before they replaced the old one they reduced it to single lane traffic and put stop lights up at each end of it... people actually went to the bridge to sit and wait for the light to change because it was the only time there ever was a stoplight in the county :rofl:

I can do ya one better....when my town got our one and only stoplight installed a couple years ago, the town threw a parade. There was no school, many businesses were closed, etc. The best part was that the light broke the next day :rofl:

We haven't got a stop light yet, doubt we ever will. There are probably about a dozen stop signs in town, but that's it. We do actually have street names, but I don't know what any of them are - nobody uses them. We just say "behind the bank" or "across from Murphy's garage." Once you make the left across the river onto Main St., if you count to about 12, you're at the other end of town. No joke. Then you pass the dairy farm and you're in no man's land.

Thats how Elizabeth is.... streets have names, but nobody uses them. Funny thing is, there is LITERALLY only two entrances to the town, Rt. 14 is the one and only road that passes through it. Easy to roadblock lol.
