SilentStrider: i've been pulled over for sleeding on that stretch in the past


I hate sleeders. I hope the cops gave you a big, fat sleeding ticket.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

My commute is 45 minutes one way for me. I'd like to have a shorter commute, but I really don't like the city my job is located in.

Damn iPhone.
What I was trying to say was...

If you live that far from work, you either need to move closer to work or find a job closer to home.


Not all of us are baristas, skippy.

Happy Hours: Studson: I live in Atlanta but commute just outside the perimeter. It takes me about 15 minutes each way, during rush hour.

Also, Marta is not only inconvenient (it runs in the shape of a cross and covers limited areas) but unreliable and not entirely safe. I wouldn't use it even if I didn't have such a short commute.

MARTA? Moving Afro Rapidly Through Atlanta?


My favorite thing about this joke is that in the 30 years I've heard it has two facets.

1. The person telling it never lives in Atlanta. These are the people that I imagine say Hotlanta which is another way to get groans from the locals.
2. The person telling it seems to think they're busting out an original and witty zinger. If you hear it in person, you can see the sparkle in their eye as they unleash it followed by the anxious pause as they wait patiently for thunderous applause.

dragonchild: The Lost City of Atlanta does not exist.  It's an optical illusion caused by fumes mixing with vapor from the freeway asphalt.

/ we can only hope


Also the quality people ran away. Ted Turner, Hank Aaron, Jeff Foxworthy, the guy who invented Coca Cola, the magician, and the so-called other gods of our legends, though gods they were -- and also, Jane Fonda was there.

10 minutes away from work now... It's dreamy. Lunch is better at home.
