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.

Possibly one of the most bipolar states in the nation. We love ourselves. No one cares who we are. Known for it's ability to piss people off by flaunting it's statistics and hiding how bad some of the inner cities are. Always first to deny how many jobs are lost but first to report the craziest news they can find - rampant chimpanzees, guys hacking off limbs, power plants exploding, you name it. Way more diverse than it's given credit for, but admittedly people tend to live in similar-race clusters. We have the preps on one end and an wannabe ghetto explosion on the other. We've got Yale to make us look good and Three Rivers for everyone who didn't make it. We have no teams of our own so we can fight over other states' and the biggest in-state game of the season is girl's college basketball. Drive through and you'll see the sprawling mansions and dilapidated cities within miles of each other, see the casinos we use to keep the money flowing in but notice that none of it ever seems to come back out. We fight over the most idiotic things - mad or wicked? Who honestly cares? - and always define ourselves by whether we come from the West or East side of the state. It's a perfect split between 'good' and 'bad' - it all just depends on what side you want to see.
Connecticut - Skyy for the rich and Dubra for the poor. Is it nice? Sometimes. Does it suck? Depends on where you are.

Someone get the state some seroquel.

A state that everyone assumes holds rich assholes. You're wrong. As a resident in Connecticut you see both good and bad. Sure, we're home to Fairfield County but we're also home to Bridgeport and New Haven: Two cities that are heavily populated and have a pretty bad rap. Most people think if you live in Connecticut you're so rich but in reality he have some major problems too. So before you rag on Connecticut why don't you know what you're talking about?Sure Connecticut has some rich snobs but we also have Whole Hearted Genuine people that are like everyone else.
Connecticut is full of all different people with different financial statuses.

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"

The 5th state in the nation. Connecticut is a diverse state, to the extreme. A extremely strange mixture of extremely rich to wanna-be gangsters, to gangsters, to middle class blue collar, to strait rednecks. Cities like New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport, where shootings, drug dealing, and prostitution is common, also contain normal people in the mix. There are also places like Greenwich, which contain the gated, extremely wealthy residents. There are also places where you will find plenty of rednecks. These people will spend there days working, fishing, off-road driving, and drinking by bonfires, lol. Connecticut is overall an average middle class hard working state, with a mixture of both extremes, from rich to dirt poor, from successful business men and women, to welfare relying bums and everything in between.

Connecticut is bordered by MA to the north, RI to the east, LI NY to the south, and NY to the west.

Connecticut is the Alonconquin indian word meaning "The longest river"

State bird- Robin
Flower- Mountain Laurel

Bug- Praying Mantis
Song- Yankee Doodle
Dance- Square Dance
Capitol- Hartford

Also, the majority of CT voters are listed as independent. CT is historically a Democratic state, however, is gaining more Conservative voters fairly quickly.

A mental dwarf. A total village person with an exaggerated and unrealistic view of himself or herself.
Person #1:

My uncle got his MBA more than twenty years ago, and he makes good money, but despite being in his late forties, he still thinks, talks, and acts the same as when he was in grade school. He is always making ethnic slurs against his minority neighbors, and I heard at work he likes yelling at the new hires.

Person #2:

That’s because he is a connecticut. I try to stay away from those kinds of people.

Judging by these wall posts, the most one-dimensional state in the union. Most people outside of new england and new york have never heard of connecticut and consider it just another one of those small northeast states that isn't massachusetts. It seems they cling to their notions of superior wealth, yet don't realize that the mean home price anywhere in the state of california is higher than theirs.
Where is connecticut?

- I don't know, isn't that a part of rhode island?
by Jonny mcwhocares May 29, 2006
Ahhh, there's nothing like moving from NJ to Connecticut and realizing that "richest state in the U.S." sure doesn't seem like it! And all that crap about having the highest I.Q.?? You sure wouldn't know it from taking one step in here. Home of the wanna-be's!! We live secluded, isolated and in total ignorant bliss! Aren't you jealous now?
"Wow, I'm leaving as soon as I can."
