"We're centrally located"
Slough, the infamous location of the TV show The Office, is the butt of British jokes about unhappy places. Weiner visits Slough and talks to a barber named Tony who has lived there all his life. Tony says Slough is "a fine place". When pressed about this he says Slough is "centrally located [that] you can get anywhere from [t]here." Weiner is unimpressed by this. "It's never a good thing" he says "when the best thing to recommend a place is that it is near other places." My husband and I had a good laugh about that one. When people ask us about Bridgewater we tell them it is very easy to get out of. It is equi-distant from Boston, Cape Cod, and Providence. All much better places to be.
