The city is where life's at! Or at least that's what our society, media, and every single city-dweller would make you believe. All the job opportunities, plenty of places to pick for dinner, and endless options for weekend activities are some of the shiniest gems the city has to offer. No wonder so many young (and sometimes old) people are drawn to the metropolitan glam. Amongst those who are most eager to join the big city life are those hailing from humble beginnings in small towns, all ready to escape the isolated areas where it feels like everyone's living in your backyard. However, you can't truly escape the small city aura no matter how far away you run. In a way, it's in your blood.

That's why one of the best ways to deal with things you dislike about living in a small town is to laugh at them. And if you're one of the people who grew up in a big city, well, now's a good chance to taste what the rest of the peeps experience. Scroll down to see the funniest memes about living in a small town and don't forget to comment and vote for your favorites!

Despite big cities seemingly offering more opportunities for people, the rural areas of America are not entirely dying out. In fact, studies show that there is a surge of people (including younger generations) that move away from the big cities in search of affordable housing and quiet lifestyle. And that’s completely understandable when you look at the rent costs in the biggest USA cities. According to RentJungle, a site that collects rent-related data, as of April 2019, average rent for an apartment in New York is $3519.

Hiding a body? "Well, hell, let me give you a hand with that! I got a shovel in my truck and know a great liddle spot right up here! Do you need a tarp? I might have one if the kids didn't take it to go hun'in' last weekend..."

Yup, Tennessee has some of the most detailed direction givers. The one I like after the hill turn left.

I grew up in Chicago, then met my husband and moved to his small town. Everyone remembers him then looks at me like "who the hell are you?" I like that my bicycle lives on the back porch for the past 10 years with no lock and it's still there

As a small child, I would sit in my garage with my parents when there was severe weather, just to watch the show.

I prefer lesser-known local restaurants, every one I have eaten at while travelling has had better food than most chains.
