What Are The 21 Signs Of A Kid From A Small Town?

Even if you want, you won’t be able to hide the symptoms. Children who are born and brought up in small towns, tend to miss out on the real world.

They have secure, kind of monotonous lives, where nothing exciting happens.

That doesn’t mean that they are any less than the street smart metro kids. We are talking of simple souls with happy hearts here.

So if you were a kid in a small town:

1. Everybody in town would know your name, or probably call you as Mr Sharma’s son

2. You would probably go for a walk with your door unlocked

3. People, parents and the whole town only care about the high school football tournament

4. Going to a movie, eating out, shopping are your ideas of extreme fun

5. Your father could park his car anywhere and walk off

6. Social occasions or gossip sessions are scheduled for weddings, garbhas, mundane functions


7. You don’t say your town name when asked

8. Instead you say – I live just 2 hours away from Bangalore

9. It is highly likely that you know how to milk a cow. Seriously!


10. You give directions using the town landmarks. Go left from the statue of Gandhi and right from the bakery


12. If you dialed a wrong number, the person who picked up would most probably give you the correct number

13. The local grocery man sent your milk and bread home without charging your credit card
