Another benefit of working in a small town is the ease of meeting someone at a location. When I want to meet someone or a group of people for lunch, all I have to say is “Let’s meet at Subway” or “Let’s meet at the chinese place.” That is enough. There are not 2 of any restaurant, so just saying the name is enough. You don’t have to give directions. You don’t need to search a map online. You just know. It makes getting together with people a little easier when you don’t need to decide on a location.
