Analysis: Are '30 Signs You Live In Atlanta' Accurate?

New, 6 comments

Confused as to whether you do, in fact, live in Atlanta? Not sure how to figure it out? has provided a handy guide! The national real estate purveyors recently asked a handful of ATL agents to collaborate for a Buzzfeed-esque list of "30 Signs You Live in Atlanta." Contrary to No. 2, hearing the words "Spaghetti Junction" still makes some of us hungry, but, overall it's a pretty solid countdown. After the jump, we've offered our 2 cents on a few items.

No. 1: "You don't get confused when someone says they're on the corner of Peachtree and Peachtree." We get the sentiment behind this one — Atlantans are used to the general notion that there are several places in town (and several hundred metro-wide) where roads named Peachtree collide. That said, it's still, like, pretty confusing when you're driving around.

No. 5: "Construction. It plagues your life." Preach, brother!

No. 8: "You've nursed a hangover at Chick-Fil-A, Flip, The Varsity or Flying Biscuit." This should technically read: "You had two bites of a Varsity chili dog before realizing that it was, in fact, far more regrettable than any of the decisions you made the previous night at the Clermont Lounge."

No. 21: "You've spent 20 minutes looking for parking to go to a festival at Piedmont Park." Couple of things: Don't drive to festivals at Piedmont Park. And if you did, it would probably take you a helluva lot longer than 20 minutes to find a parking spot.

No. 29: "You've freaked out a little bit when riding the cable car at Stone Mountain." A little bit? That mess is terrifying.

Okay, you get the point. Go check out the list, and let us know what you think — and what you would add. Here's ours:

No. 31: "You desperately want your city to be Paris With Backyards by Q3 of 2016, so long as it doesn't lengthen your commute by five minutes or compromise parking options."
