Top 10 reasons NOT to move to Atlanta, Georgia. #2 is enough for me.


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
will have the top 10 reasons to move to Atlanta Georgia up in the next couple

100 thoughts on “Top 10 reasons NOT to move to Atlanta, Georgia. #2 is enough for me.

  1. This video should have been called, 'Everything I hate about Atlanta!'
    You didn't really mention any real argument for NOT moving there.

  2. People in Atlanta have to leave Georgia to go on vacation because Georgia is wasteland. For beaches, they go to the Carolinas or Florida. For mountains, they go to North Carolina. You're lucky to find a car NOT from Georgia in Cashiers, North Carolina. Of course, Atlanta has the busiest airport in the world. People trying to get out of there.

  3. I live in a suburb of Atlanta, and I don't agree with the bugs assessment. There just aren't that many bugs, Go to the north woods if you want to find bugs.

  4. As a woman born and raised in Atlanta, I'd like to say that you definitely sugar coated the real issues here lol but nevertheless, pretty accurate video. Love your videos dude

  5. I think “not trying to bring your liberal views around the diner” in The cities outside Atlanta is absolutely true. Mainly because those “Duck Dynasty” types work and pay taxes to support the people of the inner city that don’t work and don’t pay taxes. This was spoken by a true lib from the cesspool of Portland.

  6. First two stories on the Local News..Shooting at, Shots fired…UPS Driver shot at, this keeps going on and on. Southern Hospitality?

  7. I can say Atlanta has the busiest airport ever
    My sister whose flight was missed because she was 20 minutes late
    and had to buy another ticket

  8. Have u notice all the people that complain about Atlanta wasn’t born here it most of the people that come from out of states but everyone wanna come to Atlanta shit i wish they would leave traffic already bad enough.

  9. I went camping in Gainesville, GA once and there was every type of spider known to man on my tent. Needless to say my wife and I left, quickly.

  10. I lived in Atlanta for 25 years. The traffic sucks and it isnt as good as the early 90s when it was UNREAL and AWESOME. I still like it. The traffic really is bad though. I lived 10 miles from work and sometimes it would take me an hour and a half to get there if there was an accident on 85. But, back in the mid 90s, the city was amazing.

  11. Atlanta is an overgrown small town where kids from the boonies go to tell each other how much better they are than their po' white trash parents.

  12. I bet this guy haven’t been to Atlanta ever. And my school isn’t that bad. I live in Gwinnett County and the school isn’t that bad. The traffic sucks because a lot of people moved here. And what’s wrong with bugs? Its called nature. There is actually 4 season, Summer, Spring, Fall, and Winter.

  13. This guy is the rudest nastiest loser I have ever heard trying to sound smart on You Tube. Dude something is wrong with you.

  14. Atlanta sucks! Transplants have ruined GA way past ITP. 85 North is one disgusting suburban stripmall sh't show all the way to Jefferson…. soon all the way to SC. No natives because they've all been run off.

  15. So much disrespect what if I talked about your state Atlanta isn't that bad the only bad things are I-85 North that's it Atlanta has many other sites to see like Martin Luther King's house and the teams in Atlanta. So i suggest that you don't talk about other peoples country

  16. The video touched on the two initial points I was gonna make—the traffic and crime are both really bad and getting worse on a regular basis. There’s also a shitload of corruption within the local government.

    Just, seriously, do not move to Atlanta—it’s gone completely shit since Hollywood has moved there. Also, the backwoods people are a SHITLOAD nicer and helpful than any of the very pretentious city people. Don’t be fooled by all the new age bullshit. I’d MUCH rather hang with Bubba out in Cartersville than Brent down in Inman Park. And I’m a mixed guy from Hawaii, for the record. Nothing is more annoying than how liberals pander and how they dehumanize you and seem to refer to you only by your physical identity. It’s like you’re not a PERSON—you’re a political pivot-point for them. Liberals in Atlanta are VERY annoying.

    The music scene? Horrible. Either its NEVERENDING amounts of Trap (seriously, if you move to Atl, be prepared to hear stuttering hi-hats blasting out of every 3rd vehicle you see), melismic formulaic R&B (fingersnap/snare samples EVERYWHERE!) or “metal-heads” who are actually just punks who realized (20 years too late) that the genre is dead and nobody pays any attention to it anymore, so they all had an exodus to the next best thing. The result is musicians who got the volume part right, but they can’t play worth shit. Plus, the metal community has mixed in with a sort of campy horror pastiche that just rubs me wrong. Atlanta just isn’t a very live music friendly place as a whole..they’d rather have DJs. If you like LIVE music…go to Nashville and visit the SoBro or the east side.

    I just moved and thank God I got out.

  17. They do the Hospital thing in Brooklyn too .
    And what parish you live in if you're Catholic .
    And there's only one BROOKLYN so stop typing .

  18. Soo, i shouldnt move to atl because of the housewives? This is probably the most pointless video I’ve ever watched

  19. Native Atlantan here……..
    Mostly correct, have to tweek the details a bit.
    1. The heat: don’t compare to Vegas or anywhere out west. 92 degrees with 97 humidity is WAY different than 100 in the shade.
    2. Never heard of the hospital thing before (born in Crawford Long myself) but then I don’t socialize like I used to.
    3. Traffic is worse than you describe. Not just inside 285 but outside as well. My wife & I have relocated primarily because the street we had to navigate for any major purpose was taking 30 minutes to go 7 miles.
    4. The rap music thing was accurate but you needed to include actors as well. I worked in the industry for many years & the wanna-be factor has doubled every year.
    Like I said, pretty well done and I like ATL. Look forward to why I should move back.

  20. The traffic should be #1 seriously

    It’s only south of Atlanta that’s backwoods. Northern metro Atlanta is really diverse and progressive. Traffic sucks up there too

    School are by county not city. North Atlanta is Fulton county schools and some of them are bad. But north Fulton county is not bad, Alpharetta, Johns creek. Etc.

    Yeah palmetto bugs 🥺

  21. We have lived in the suburbs of ATL for 40 years. We just started rving full time and are in Oregon right now. I LOVE the weather in Washington and Oregon in the summer. I don’t miss the horrible humidity in Ga. or the horrible traffic. I miss nothing about ATL

  22. Me and my family were on vacation there and we were stuck in traffic and just in the backseat munching on my hot Cheetos, listening to some music and I look out my window, next thing i know there’s a man taking a shit on the sidewalk, I know you gotta go when you gotta go but there was whole Strip of café’s, restaurants, small clothing stores. he could’ve went into any one of them and use the bathroom. I mean like damn.🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

  23. Traffic is NOT that bad. People just need to learn how to drive. If u drive slow…move to the right….it's the law…😅😅

  24. I went there for a conference I hated it so much I was going to watch gone with the wind again for one part of the movie when I got home. You’ll know what I am referring to

  25. Your right Atlanta is full of liberal transplants and welfare recipients. I-285 is know as "the ring around the Congo". If you want to move to Atlanta move outside the perimeter to the East it's where the normal people live.

  26. I HATE PALMETTO BUGS!! UGH… I'm from SC, and those things are EVERYWHERE! We just call them roaches, cause they are the roaches of the south. I used to work at a restaurant that had 2 branches…. I got sent to the less popular one, one day, and a family walked in from outside, the lady sat down, and had a HUGE palmetto bug on the back of her shirt! I'm teaching in Korea now, and I showed one of my friends here (a local Korean), a picture of those, and she jumped.

    LOL to the 2 seasons thing. There is a joke about the south that says, "You know you're from the south, when you know the 4 seasons…. Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas."

  27. Господи, какой-то набор клише и штампов. Офигенный город. Трафик это признак цивилизации, мой друг. Жуки и прочая живность это очень круто, у меня недавно опоссум на заборе клянчил стейк =) Погода – 280 дней солнца, зима +5 ( спросите канадцев про погоду). Приступность как приступность для 6 миллионго города. Реднеки? Да этоже соль Американской земли. Короче, просто из пальца для прсмторов, и то всего 8 тысяч. И да, я пишу на русском – Добро пожаловать в Америку.

  28. We do have seasons here. Not just summer, bless your heart 😉 Spring and Fall are wonderful and beautiful in Atlanta (pronounced “Ad-lanna.) Summer heat comes early starting around end of May to first of June. And yes, summer is HOT and humid. But most have air conditioners so we survive. Starts to cool down mid to end of September. And people pull out the coats mid to end of October. We are in the south, but we do have a change of seasons.

  29. I lived in Kennesaw GA for two years. My neighbors were (without exception) gun-toting, beer-guzzling, wife-beating, tobacco-chewing, KKK enthusiasts. Yeah, I had neighbors who were actually in the Klan and were proud of that fact.

  30. The Dude “Judges of the earth.” Yankees high living is way better than the poor people in the South. They think they own everywhere on earth. They don’t know how many problems they’ve caused not only in the south, but in other countries too. They think that they’re so inventive and progressive and do – gooders But in Europe, they hate them and don’t even want to see them coming as tourists because they act like where ever they go, they got everything figured out and they expect people to “get with it” in order to please them .
    They’ve caused a lot of political problems and destruction of land here in the south. They’ve made our lives harder because of laws changing for them. And ran up taxes and the price of land and everything else. They think they’re great , while not even realizing how the world hates them and their government. Miserable money-eating crap they are

  31. Atlanta is stale to me now. City and people in it are too dense for me. It's far better than Memphis to me. If you think you won't like Atlanta, Never go to Memphis.
