I'm starting to really hate this town... I've lived here all my life, and have noticed that in the last few years, this town is going downhill fast.

It's next to impossible to find ANYTHING I'm looking for in stores localy, and am turning to online purchases more and more ( not ideal as the shipping often costs as much or more as the item, and the wait time for shipping)...

In the last 3 years, I've found shoes that fit ONCE.(size 15) Most places don't carry above size 12.

And try finding parts for customising a computer.... good luck. I called each and every "computer store" in this town, and they didn't even know what cable sleeving was, let alone carry it.

How can you call yourself a computer store, and not know what cable sleeving is???

If you doubt me, try finding thermal paste in this town. Occasionally you can find a very poor brand of it at "Deals", but I wouldn't use a paste that low grade.

I find it getting harder and harder to resist the urge to punch the store employee in the face when you ask if they have something... have to describe it... and they still stare at you blankly. If you don't know your stores inventory, that's fine... but that "deer in headlights" blank stare is getting old.
