The next time you find yourself stuck in traffic because everyone from OTP left for work at the same time, or because everyone from OTP is afraid of a little snow, take a moment to think about all the things there are to love about Atlanta, about all we get right, about these 20 things that Atlanta does better than anyone.
1. Sitting in traffic
Thanks in part to people like this, we sit in traffic more than almost anyone else, so lord knows we've had some practice.
2. Urban sprawl
Our traffic blows for a reason: our metro has 28 counties and 140+ cities and one meager public transit system. It's enough to drive you to drink... except some municipalities don't even allow Sunday sales.
The rest of the country can thank us for the scattered, smothered, and covered eats at Waffle House every time they wake up feeling less than 100%, or every time they're headed home from doing what'll make 'em feel less than 100% when they wake up.
4. Almost winning at sports
You’d think the Braves could do better than 1-16 in the postseason, but nope. In fact we're so good at losing, we're losing the Braves themselves after next season. And we lost a hockey team. Twice!
