One of the most boring places on earth.
"I'm from Connecticut. Not NY, not Boston, and sure as hell not Jersey. Connecticut. We don't have parkways here. They're highways, and as far as I'm concerned, it's 84 and 91, and that's it. We don't go to bars in highschool. We drive 65 mph to go to the "packy", not the liquor store, but the package store, and we make damn sure we get there before 9. We don't have stupid accents, and we lock our doors when we go to New Haven. We love nothing more than watching our Huskies own shit in March. We eat grinders here, not subs, not heroes, not even hoagies. We enjoy a good party in the woods. We don't get bunked, hammered, smashed, or plastered here. No, no, we get cocked, and we're damn proud of it. I'm from Connecticut."

Connecticut is that beautiful, affluent state wedged between MA and NY, that everyone views as pompous and snobby. Of course there are many wealthy areas associated with New York in the So. Half of the state (e.g. GW, Darien, New Caanan, Wilton, W & S Ports,Madison, and Old Lyme farther east. But, CT has its fair share of undesirable places including Waterbury and its disgusting blue collar suburbs, and Inner City Hartford, New Haven, and B-port. Southern CT is not the only rich enclave in the state, the Farmington Valley is a part of the Hartford Metro Area and has three very wealthy towns; Avon, Farmington, and Simsbury(My Hometown). And yes, even up here in S-bury, everyone wears Abercrombie and most still like the good ole Yankees(My Choice) as opposed to the Massholes' favorite, the blow sox. To sum it up, Connecticut IS a great state, better than New Jersey(Mainly b/c it doesn't have the STENCH). And no we are not gay, don't live near farms, and all the houses arent over 1,000,000, mine in fact is only worth $800,000 translated to about $2,787,000 if it were in Greenwich.
Most of Connecticut isn't as rich as you all think, for instance if you live in West Hartford, CT(Nice Town) and your house is worth $100,000 (unrealisticlly cheap), the cost inflation of being near NYC and everone wanting to live there would cause the house to be worth $348,000 in Waspy Greenwich.

CT is the richest country in the nation. It is mostly, but NOT completely, filled with rich preppy towns with high IQ's and everyone has to play more then 2 sports. However, there are parts of Connecticut that aren't rich, but everyone else in CT is afraid to go there. It's filled with big bright white/yellow houses and mowed lawns that are 100 feet to 1 mile. You probably live in a suburb and all of your friends are rich too, so you think it's normal.

You know you live in Connecticut when:
-Your lawn is mowed
-You have added an addition to your house less then 5 years ago
-You wear polo shirts and pants from abercrombie

-You get upset if you get a B-
-One of your parents makes over $150,000 a year
-You have an xbox, a medium sized dog, and a TV over 40"
-You have a BMW, or any car over $30,000
-You're scared of minorities
Guy from Connecticut: "Connecticut iznt what you say its not rich or preppy were just normal!!!!"

Guy not from Connecticut: "Connecticut is totally rich preppy and away from the real world . . The useless part between Massachusetts and New York. YEWSELESS!!!!!!"

state next to boston and new york. richest state, with wealthy suburbs such as fairfield, new canaan, avon, simbsbury, glastonbury. a lot of famous people live here, and if you go anywhere and you say your from connecticut people assume you are rich. A state where the kids have better cars then the teachers, and the lunch ladies pop their collars. Pretty much every high school student has a northface backpack and jacket, and if you are a girl who doesn't own birkenstocks and or uggs people will think your poor. Every teenager from the ages 15-22 goes to the DMB concerts in the summer at the meadows and gets either too drunk or high to remember half the concert. The package stores close at 8, and people think the only highways are 91 and 84.
"where are you from?"
"connecticut."

i am from Connecticut and let me say I AM NOT RICH!!! also, i dont wear ambercrombie and hollister. The reason why it looks like were rich is b/c celebrities choose to spend their gazzillion dollars on buying homes here; their income is what makes our income per capita so large. i do not think New Jersey sucks b/c i like it there. maybe its a misconception but People from CT arnt stuck up snobs who hate you. so its not nice to write things that make us look like horrible people.
beacuse i'm not a meanie
its making me put connecticut!

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..
