My home state...where New Yorkers go to turn off their brains, where NYC business men keep their mistresses, and the nutmeg state. We also have the highest IQ, highest cost of living, one of the highest teen heroin usage levels, and, of course, nutmeg.

Connecticut is widely recognized for its wealth. Home to Fairfield County, one of the richest counties in the US, including Westport, Greenwich, Ridgefield, Darien, New Canaan and others. When leaving this sheltered little state and asked where your from people tend to automatically assume your rich. You can usually find a wide range of SUVs, luxury vehicles, big houses and ridiculously expensive boutiques when visiting Connecticut.
"Your from Connecticut aren't you?"

"How can you tell?"

"Oh, I don't know. Maybe because you drive a BMW, and wear nothing but polo shirts"

...
"How do you spell the state you live in again?"

"C-o-n-n-e-c-t-i-c-u-t"

"Damn, it's just easier to call it the rich state"

A bad career move. Home to the meanest people in the world. Common place for yellers and rude assholes. A place where people are extremely nice to you, just before they rip you off and ruin you financially. A wonderful place, but only for them. Look carefully and most of them have horns. George W. Bush’s birth place.
