7. Warehouses aren't just warehouses -- they're cool living spaces
That you can't afford, but that's not the point! Instead of just housing industrial tractors or pool supplies or whatever else it is that fills rural buildings, warehouses in cities are being converted into cool artistic condos that cost millions of dollars and raise the cost of housing for everyone else... which is totally awesome because, uh, supply side economics? Whatever. Look at that cool apartment!
In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average urban household spent nearly $8,000 a year more than rural households on cost of living. Which, again, is totally awesome because you gotta spend money to make money. Everyone knows this.
8. Nobody cares about you
According to the Gilmore Girls (the definitive description of American small town life), everyone is always up in your business in non-urban America. People know your name, ask about your problems, and make you get involved in community activities. It's all extremely unpleasant.
