Small town, sardine-packed shopping.

The town I live in has six... maybe seven thousand people. I swear that every single one of them was out and about yesterday. It's been absolute chaos in the "downtown core" of Smithers, BC.

Going to pick up that parcel at the Post Office? Good Luck.
Need to ship something via Greyhound to that relative down south? Wishful Thinking.
Trying to find that last-minute gift for your second cousin's Uncle's sister-in law's friend? I'll pray for you.

But at least I'm not the only one complaining. And it's true, you do see some rather unique things... even in Smithers.
