You Know You’re From Georgia If…

You know you're from Georgia

Obviously you know if you’re from Georgia. Whether you’re born and raised, just raised, or you moved here and are making up for lost time, a Georgian is a Georgian. But if you catch yourself doing some of the following, if you can nod knowingly, then you can know you’re truly from Georgia, regardless of how you came to be here.

  • If your own twin brother is 30 seconds older than you, you probably fight the compulsion to call him “sir.”
  • You listen to the weather forecast before getting dressed. Bonus points if you’ve brought an alternate set of clothes for later.
  • Stores don’t have bags or shopping carts, they have sacks and buggies.
  • You’ve been attacked by fire ants and lived to tell the tale.
  • Fried chicken is a major part of your diet and you know the best place in Georgia to get it (and no one else quite agrees with you where that place is).
  • You can properly pronounce Senoia, DeKalb, Dahlonega, Buena Vista, Chickamauga, Valdosta, Okefenokee, and La Fayette.
  • Coca Cola is a big deal in Georgia. It was invented in 1886 in Atlanta by John Pemberton. Any Georgia schoolchild can tell you that.
  • Speaking of Coke, every carbonated beverage is a Coke. Sprite? Coke. Dr. Pepper? Coke. Coca Cola? Definitely a Coke.
  • If you don’t want a Coke, of whatever variety, you can always order and iced tea. If a restaurant doesn’t have iced tea, they’re doing something wrong.
  • A Lexus or BMW aren’t status symbols – a Chevy Silverado Extended Bed Crew Cab is. You also know that SouthTowne Motors is the place to shop for a new truck.
