(1) You’re used to getting sympathy when you tell people where you live. The award for most used condolence goes to: “I hear the schools are great.”

(2) You’re from the North and consider Charlotte the tropics, where everything is permanently 50% off.

Temp-and-Cost-of-Living

(3) You know the difference between all the Ardreys and sound like a pirate saying it. Arrrdrey, Arrrdrey Kell, Old Arrrdrey, Wade Arrrdrey…

(4) You had Survivor flashbacks an hour into the 5-acre, 2 mile, Hall Family Farm corn maze and you cut through to get out. Cheaters.

(5) At least once a week, you hear about how cheap the taxes and  how good the schools are in Union County. But do they have two Targets within a mile of each other? Nope.

(6) You accidently went to the wrong Starbucks for a meeting. They’re everywhere.

(7) You go to South Carolina to fuel up your gas guzzling vans and SUVs. You know who you are.

Gas Comparison

(8) You know about the athleisure-wearing mom mafia commission that meets at Zoe’s at noon on school days. Moms, we love you, don’t whack us.

(9) You avoided going to Ballantyne Village for months because you got over circling parking lots forever when you were 15 and learning to drive. (All spots are open now!)

(10) You hate 485.
