It was pretty funny when I decided to move to a small town.
I didn’t really think about the fact that everybody in the town knows one another.
I am from a big city and I am used to that kind of life. Honestly though, I just wanted to get away from that lifestyle and actually enjoy good air quality out in the country for a change. I actually started my own successful online business that really took off. I am working all of the time, but I actually work from home. When I first moved into this small town, neighbors were friendly, but they seemed suspicious of me. I would have packages delivered to my house all of the time, and that’s normal for me. When I would have neighbors visit, I had people ask me why I always have packages delivered all of the time like that. I thought it was funny when they thought I was some kind of drug dealer or something. After all, I had my house built from scratch and it is a very large home. I also had the place hooked up with radiant heated floors and an energy efficient cooling system. The icing on the cake with my HVAC system is the smart thermostat. Nobody around this small town had anything fancy like that and they didn’t understand how I had so much money. I had to explain that I operated my own business online and that’s how I made the big bucks. When people got to know me, they realized that I was a good guy and word spread quickly around the town about my online business. I even had people ask if they could work for me.
