Connecticut: Best known for its wealth... mostly in Greenwhich and Westport (where I live). Yeah, we have all the top fasihons, the best (real) bags, the hottest shoes, and yes, we pop our collar. We, however, aren't snobs, even though we grow up surrounded by abnormally expenisve stuff. We are close to New York, and we don't think that New Jersey is terrible... yea, so, we do have more than one house, and ridiculously expensive cars, and our school is, as my fellow westportian stated, HUGE. But, living in this state isn't all great... outside of Yale, New Haven is a dump, and the majority of Connecticut isn't so wealthy/nice. I can't speak for other parts of Connecticut, but I can say this for Westport... we have a GREAT school system, and mostly our IQ is up there, people go to great schools, so what if they do it in high fashion... unfortunatley we also have a really high drug abuse/use rate, which isn't slowing. Our town is nice, but overall, seeing the same brands/cars/hairstlyes/shops is boring. And yea, most of us are happy right here, In Connecticut...
"nice uggs, get them recently?"
"yea, I have them in every color now"
"Are you from Connecticut?"
"You people are so rich"
"no we aren't"....(thinks about it) "ok, maybe just a little"

The state people try to hate on or don't know the geographical location of and secretly wish they were from. Jealousy runs deep once someone finds out you're from the land of nutmeg and Franklin Giant Grinder and they aren't. Those who can, go to Connecticut. Those who settle for mundane and average stay in some god forsaken hell hole somewhere else.
person 1: hey where are you from?
person 2: Connecticut?
Person 1: I'm gonna just give up on life because im not from such a cool place.

Person 2: Don't be so hard on yourself..not all of us can come from the best state. It really must suck being you though.

Connecticut is one state that just can't make up its mind...
Hey what's up?
Not much.
You're from Connecticut, right?
So basically that's like Mass?
Uh, no, not really...
Oh so then it must be just like New York?
Well, not quite either...
So what's it like then?!?!?
Don't know... it can't decide.

One of the States of the United States of America and one of the original 13 colonies to declare their independence from Great Britain. Was among the first of the states to seek independence. Connecticut has a rich history and was the home of many patriots. Connecticut is currently among the richest state in the union, and is unfortunately largely filled with rich white liberals. Good education is available to those who can afford it, but taxes are high, and some consider it one of the least free states based on personal and economic freedoms. Drivers are rude (probably 2nd worst in the nation) but not as bad as nearby Massachusetts.

Politically it is usually a blue state filled with idiotic liberals with a bad habit of reelected the same corrupt politicians like Chris Dodd. Some fear Connecticut will turn into an ineffective, bankrupt, one-party state like Massachusetts.
Hey that asshole just passed and flipped me off, must be from Connecticut.

Let me just say I don't think we are stuck up at all. I also don't believe we have an accent. Abercrombie and Fitch/ Hollister aren't expensive at all so I don't see what the big deal is about. I will admit I thought EVERYONE has been to Cape Cod but appraently not. I love having all
four seasons. A woman I know has a one floor (very small) house and it's worth 225,000 which is an average price for a house I suppose. Mine is 400,000 and it's a raised ranch. Neither of the houses have pools. The majority of 6th graders have cell phones (average age to get one). If you don't have one in 6th then most likely 7th. You can count the number of 8th graders on one hand who don't have one (I actually got mine in 5th). Oh yah, not everyone's preppy although the majority is. I don't believe polo's are really that preppy but okay. We are not stuck up snobs or anything and it's so annoying when people stereotype like that. I love designer things but not everyone does. Not all of us are spoiled but it depends on your definition of spoiled I guess. The day I turn 16 I am promised a car but it makes sence to get a car once you can drive doesn't it? I don't know what else to say so I'll stop here.
Okay, I was in Vermont this past winter (like 3 months ago) and I was talking to these people who were from Connecticut..too. We went skiing/snowboarding together and we talked to some people and every single time they asked, "Where are you from?" and we replied, "Connecticut," they either said, "WOW! so you're really rich?" or "Oh, okay talk to you later bye..." and left and it gets very annoying. This one girl even walked into me on purpose at the bottom of the hill! Please be nice and stop stereotyping.
