hey what is going on everyone it’s time
to take a look at another city on this channel we haven’t done too many videos
on the southern US and I figure it’s about time today’s list is about the
great city of Atlanta Atlanta is one of my favorite cities to visit I’ve been
visiting there since back in the late 80s it’s got great food great people
great history and southern hospitality they’re so hospitable when they insult
you they make it sound nice I had a lady after a comedy show one time tell me
baby your brain don’t work right bless your heart see they throw that
bless your heart in there and it confuses you you think it was something
nice they said it took me over an hour to figure out she just called me dumb
hence proving her point even though it’s a great city it might not be for
everybody I always do a positive and a negative video about each city state
location whatever I do and I usually start with the negative video so let’s
get going here’s my top ten reasons not to move to Atlanta number ten
traffic like most major cities that have had a major influx of people like
Atlanta has over the last 10 years or so you’re gonna have traffic that’s just a
fact of life what really confuses me that this has
happened across the country countless times since let’s say the 1940s you
would think someone would figure out a way to stop this situation from
happening anyway it’s ranked fourth or fifth as the worst traffic for a major
city depending on which study you read number nine everything’s named after
peach if someone gives you directions in the city of Atlanta and it has the word
peach in it make sure they specify which peach peach Road Peachtree Road peach
Lane peach tree lane Peach Street Peachtree Street the Peach Pit whatever
everything in this city has the word peach and it seems like and I get it
Georgia is the Peach State I understand if you try and tell your land navigation
system some address on Peach it will probably tell you the city of Atlanta
has over 75 streets with the word peach in it and hundreds of locations you know
that right bless your heart number eight outside of Atlanta if
you’re new to Atlanta you’ve gotten used to the people of Atlanta please don’t
think that’s how all the people of Georgia are if you leave any major city
in Georgia it gets a little backwoods okay not a little it gets a lot
backwoods now they’re good people most of the time just don’t go trying to
bring your liberal views around the diner and you’ll be okay now
if you live there you learn to stay in the perimeter Atlanta is ringed by the
interstate 285 a circular moat of a freeway that separates the city from the
burbs and further out the duck dynasty types and before you comment I know
those guys are from Louisiana but their types are all around the south what do
you like it or not I mean minus the millions of dollars the duck dynasty
people have number seven
everybody’s a transplant if you’re new to Atlanta you probably aren’t going to
find too many people born and raised since it got popular some years back all
the locals have fled to the suburbs now if you do meet someone you’ll know it
they identify themselves by what hospital they were born at it’s a thing
I noticed this a few times and I mentioned it to a co-worker he grew up
in College Park lived there his whole life I guess well most of his life I met
him when he’s like 30 he said that it’s an Atlanta native thing and they all do
it so that’s kind of strange but I get it number six the Real Housewives Atlanta
has a Real Housewives show and by far it’s the worst of all of them
this gives the handful of true Atlanta housewives I know a really bad name one
of those crazies released a dance track called don’t be tardy I would play a
clip for you right now but I’m not that cruel to my viewers my first question is
who the hell uses the word tardy anymore it’s ridiculous number five the music
the music scene is booming in Atlanta and probably has some of the best rap
and hip-hop talent currently going when any city starts having any sort of music
scene you get a migration of small town 17 to 30 year olds that are going to
make it big in the city because they’re the best in their town of two hundred
and thirty-four people like everyone in Hollywood is an actor and is physically
unable not to tell you about it right now that’s what’s going on in Atlanta
with rappers rappers could get arrested for drunk driving and while in the back
of the squad car try and get the cop to listen to their demo number four schools the schools are bad
Atlanta there’s approximately 155 public schools in Atlanta and most of them get
an F or a degrade the average school test score is 44% lower than the
national average in Atlanta now I did read an article about some schools have
cut their dropout rate in half over the last two years that’s really good news
and it’s a step at the right direction the downside is the Atlanta school
system has a lot of steps to go now that one I usually don’t like to make jokes
about I really believe in good schools and I really hope for the best when it
comes to this one education is very important number three crime crime is
bad in Atlanta Lana is only safer than two percent of the cities in the United
States now that’s not good considering there’s places out there like Camden New
Jersey Chicago and Detroit gold chain snatching and car theft are big things
in Atlanta and even better the arrests for car thefts are insanely higher than
any other city in the u.s. now I know what you’re saying of course they have
more rest because they have more car thefts yes statistically that makes
sense the thing is most of those arrests happened within an hour of the actual
theft everyone has a tracking device on their car in Atlanta you’re still
stealing cars out there you’re an idiot number two bugs this is
one of the worse most of the south is infested with insects I come from two
places that really don’t have many bugs LA and Portland in Atlanta you have
mosquitoes gnats lightning bugs and these things that look like cockroaches
called palmetto bugs if you freak out about bugs you want to move to Seattle
not Atlanta they’re everywhere and number one the weather in Atlanta
they have two seasons summer and Christmas now I know it’s not but it
really feels like summer is 11 months long in Atlanta now most people think
that’s a good thing and it is if you’re on vacation on a beach Atlanta is hot
and muggy all the time it’s so bad skinny girls get boob sweat while
sitting in the shade now I’ve noticed girls wearing just tank tops here a
bunch it’s mostly year I’ve also heard other girls complain that they’re not
even wearing bras and it’s gross and things like that my question to those
prudes is this why is that any different from girls in Vegas Los Angeles or Miami
wearing bikini tops and shorts most a year
there is no difference it’s perfectly fine now the highest monthly average
temperature in Atlanta in August is 85 degrees then sound that bad but it is
when you consider that’s the average and as far as smog goes and air quality
they’ve also been getting up there on the air quality list in recent years
it’s getting bad with that and the heat and all the traffic it’s not healthy
well that’s my list that’s the top 10 reasons not to move to Atlanta Georgia I
