There is literally one Stop Light in the entire county.
 

I'm guessing at night it switches to flashing.

Yeah...

County population - 12,950
City seat of government population - 1,839
(Numbers are from United States Census Bureau, dated 2013)
I'd probably just shoot myself. Or move, whichever got me out of there faster. I like walking down the street incognito. Small towns don't do it for me. Medium towns don't either but I am stuck where I am at. BTW, the same bs crap goes on in places with higher populations.

Well I was born in a small town
And I can breathe in a small town
Gonna die in this small town
And that's prob'ly where they'll bury me

I just moved to a quiet development that's right behind a massive 2.6-mile-long strip mall, with virtually every chain store and restaurant that's ever been, including all the big-box ones.  From my house, you'd never know any of it was there, but I have a 24-hour Walmart 60 seconds away.  That's important, because sometimes you want a Snickers bar at 3AM, and don't feel like driving to the 24-hour BP or the 24-hour Walgreens.

To paraphrase Jalen Rose, I'm what you call a product of my environment, and this is it.

In case you're wondering, somehow it doesn't have an IHOP.  The nearest IHOP is 6.7 miles away.  Thankfully, it's open 24 hours.  It's right near my back-up mall, which includes a Barnes & Noble.  I also have a nearby third-string mall, which also includes a Barnes & Noble.

Has anyone ever not told you that you have issues?

It's hard to care when the Red Lobster is right across from the Barnes & Noble.
