reason #523 why I prefer living in the countryside

When going to the Mairie to obtain information on renewing my carte de sejour (which is the documentation required that says I have the right to live in France, for those not in the know), we

* immediately speak to the clerk, because there is no one waiting in line

* confirm that it is not necessary to go to the Prefecture in Troyes (where there is certainly a line and not very nice clerks)

* get the correct information on what we'll need in the blink of an eye

* receive an offer from the clerk to photocopy our necessary documents for us

* are in and out of the office in less than ten minutes

Why would anyone want to live in a big city?
