Observations of Small Town Living (OOSTL)

Rural people must be dishonest. We don’t have a postal address. The postal service doesn’t deliver to our street address because we’re too far out. Just yesterday, I was filling out a rebate form that required I provide a street address and that if I use a P.O. Box, my rebate would not be honored. I guess bad guys use P.O. Boxes in their dishonest crimes. So, to get my rebate, I have to be dishonest and trick them in sending the rebate to me. Methods include having them send to the address of the post office with an apartment number of our P.O. Box or making a very long address that includes both the P.O. Box and the street address. Go figure.
