35 Signs You Grew Up In Atlanta

You know you got excited in 2004 every time you heard those Atlanta shoutouts from Usher. A-town down.

1. Let's be serious. Chances are you grew up outside the perimeter.

Roswell, Norcross, Marietta, Alpharetta, East Cobb, but you ALWAYS tell people you're from Atlanta so they don't think you're a redneck.

2. What's more annoying than Shane's voice from the Shane Co. radio commercial, you ask?

You know every word to this commercial whether you like it or not. In fact, it's the only reason you know that Morrow is even a place.


3. If you would like a soft drink you ask for a Coke. Not soda, not pop (silly yankees). A Coke.

Pepsi is not an option. That's a good way to lose a finger... or a hand (cough cough...).

5. Progression of an Atlanta sports fan's reactions throughout any given season.

The Braves, Falcons, and Hawks — Those are your teams. And sometimes they make you wish they weren't.


9. If there's even a chance it's going to snow, you do not run, you do not walk, you flock to a grocery store.

I've gotten snow days for less than one-fourth of an inch of snow. The city has actually shut down for six days because we have all of four snow plows. Suck on that, Yankees!


21. You know that "Chattahoochee" is not a dirty word. Neither is "Shooting the Hootch," even though it sounds that way.


35. No matter where you are, you'll always know the lyrics to "Welcome to Atlanta."
