17 Things People From Atlanta Don't Want To Hear Again

We're more than just Coca-Cola and civil rights museums.

1. "OH! So you're from HOTLANTA!"

Bravo

We don't call it that...

2. "...But you're not really from Atlanta."

You don't really know where Lithonia is, so as far as you're concerned I am from Atlanta.

3. "Atlanta isn't really the south compared to [some other southern city]."

VH1 / Via vh1.tumblr.com

So Dahlonega is southern, Macon is southern, but let's skip over Atlanta cause it's not southern?!

4. "You guys don't have a real winter down here."

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

Temperatures below 50 degrees are winter and that's just fine.

5. "What do you do for fun?"

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

Go to restaurants, movies, amusement parks — what do y'all do where you come from?

6. "Do you guys have _______ down here?"

VH1 / Via vh1.tumblr.com

Atlanta isn't some middle-of-nowhere town. If we don't have it there's something like it.

7. "Atlanta is full of transplants."

VH1

Yeah, but some of us are still born and bred. Plus, isn't that how cities work?

8. "Atlanta is the Hollywood of the south."

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

We're our own entity – thanks tho.

9. "Every street here is Peachtree Street."

10. "There's a bunch of black people there!"

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

OK.

11. "Did you go to the Olympics?!"

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

Yes.

12. "The traffic is horrible."

VH1

YOU DON'T THINK WE KNOW THAT?!

13. "MARTA is bad public transportation."

VH1

Well, it only goes in four directions, so obviously.

14. "All your sports teams suck!"

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

We never would have known if you didn't share!

15. "The whole city shuts down when it snows – you guys can't even handle a little bit of it!"

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

LOL it doesn't snow here often – do you think we have snow plows lying around?

16. "Does everyone act like they do on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?"

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

Does everyone up north act like they're in the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey?!

17. "Is it like the movie ATL?!"

VH1 / Via pennylessproud.tumblr.com

Is this some kind of a joke?
