Oh Connecticut..where to begin? Growing up in CT you think it is the worst place to be, but once out you know it is a good place to raise a family. Once you say you're from CT automatically the next question is.."Are you from Greenwich?" NEWS FLASH EVERYONE-CONNECTICUT HAS MANY OTHER TOWNS BESIDES GREENWICH- Yes many of us our Preppy's that went to either private or parochial schools even though many of our public schools are just as good. Once out of CT, let's say in college, saying you're from CT just sounds better than saying for instance New Jersey. When you are from CT there is no reason to EVER venture into New Jersey, personally one would rather go to Massachusetts then Jersey. If you are from CT and you go to school in the NYC area, and meet someone from Bergen County, NJ they will claim they are just as preppy and rich as "you Connecticut people" are. No Bergen County, your not, sorry. And finally Connecticut has TWO baseball teams, The Yankees and The Red Sox, depending on where you live is who you cheer for.
Non-CT Resident: "Where are you from?"
CT Resident: "Connecticut."
Non-CT Resident: "Oh are you from Greenwich?"
CT Resident: "No, I am not from Greenwich."
Non-CT Resident: "So you must be a Sox fan coming from New England?"
CT Resident: "No I'm from Western half of CT, that's Yankee territory."
Not everybody can be from Connecticut..
