As a result, walking through the grocery store to get items is extremely uncomfortable
Ever since I was a child, I have been living in a small town in the south. We’re far enough from any major cities or coasts that we have very few visitors from out of town at any given moment. My high school graduating class for instance had only 60 people in total, most of which I had known since the early years of elementary school. Sure, it’s hard to shake town gossip or to meet new people when you’re in such a small community and can’t get in the car to drive anywhere else. But what bothers me more than anything is our lack of any variety with businesses of any kind. There is only one dentist and two primary physicians in our whole community. There are two gas stations and two mechanic shops. We have just one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school. The only daycare center is run out of someone’s house, with play areas in the backyard. And, unfortunately, there is only one grocery store in a 40 mile radius. They’re often out of the various coffees and meat products that I like to consume; but worst of all, right now their air conditioning system is down. With few repair companies in town, this fix has been taking several days to complete. As a result, walking through the grocery store to get items is extremely uncomfortable. I end up walking out with the back of my shirt soaked in sweat from the lack of cool air. I really hope that our grocery store gets its air conditioner fixed soon, I don’t want to walk back in the sweltering hot store again like this.
