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.

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!

Capital City:

Unlike the largely white Hartford once run by clubby Yankee businessmen everyone called the Bishops, Perez's Hartford is a city of minorities, many from Jamaica and Puerto Rico, with the largest percentage of Latinos north of Miami and east of the Mississippi. A way station for suburban-bound immigrants, Hartford has a homeownership rate of less than 25% -- the nation's second-lowest, after Newark, N.J. Thirty-one percent of its 125,000 residents live in poverty. Only Brownsville, Texas, ranks lower.

Growing up in CT you just feel like an average kid. You felt average because your friend’s fathers are VPs or CEOs just like yours. You don’t feel particularly smart because you aren’t different from the neighbor kids. You don’t feel racist because you grow up without racial tension. Your neighbors and friends that are just like you that you didn’t feel were unusually smart or stupid ended up being brain surgeons. In Connecticut you only have a high IQ if you leave Connecticut or if you hang out with people that move here from somewhere else. Connecticut is beautiful and it is my home.
When you start getting sick of one season Connecticut just moves on to the next one.

The fifth state to join the union of the United States. Considered by many to be one of the six New England states, the other five being Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Maine; considered by New Englanders to be an annex of the state of New York.
Masshole: 'Where ah you from?'
Connecticutian: 'Connecticut.'
Masshole: 'Really? I've never been to that paht of New York."
Connecticutian: 'It's not part of New York!'
Rhode Islander, New Hampshirite, Vermonter, and Mainiac: 'Sure it is.'
Connecticutian: -_-*

My home state in which I have spent half my life so far. Get this through your thick heads america, WE ARE ALL NOT RICH! I lived in Waterbury which is really ghetto and filled with blacks and hispanics.

The Connecticut that I know is far different from what comes to mind for everyone else. The Connecticut that I know is a rough and tumble place full of alcoholics and people recently laid off from their $75k+ factory jobs. It's a small place where people think small and use small words. (Forgive me Peter Gabriel) Contrary to CT having a high IQ, most nutmeggers I knew were just a notch above retarded.

Which is why I moved to Orlando, Florida where I increased my standard of living for much less money
Man: I need to get out of Connecticut
Friend : Anywhere is better then Connecticut

One of the highest taxed states in the U.S. Commonly seen as the "rich state". The state where there is absolutely nothing to do besides work, drive around, go to Foxwoods/Mohegan Sun, or drink/do drugs.

Connecticut very rarely pumps out any pro or semi-pro athletes at all. Home to cities and counties such as Farfield (the rich part), New Haven (the wannabe NYC Bronx), Hartford (New England street racing central), and New London/Groton-Mystic County (the extremely boring part where the casinos call home).

If you want to move to a boring state then you can choose Connecticut.
Jake: Yo dawg, you're moving to Connecticut. What, did your parents hit the lotto or something?

Bill: Nah man, my dad got a job at Pfizer there. I have a pen-pal that lives there. He told me to prepare myself with a handgun, Abercrombie shirts, and a bottle of scotch.... Sounds like hell.

a state in the USA in which, opposed to contrary belief, is not entirely filled with stuck up preppy people. there actually are a lot of farms and rural areas still. sure, there are rich parts, but there are also reeeeallllly poor parts. not everyone in ct is insanely rich. we also have a lot of sweet homegrown bands.
person 1: you're from Connecticut?
person 2: yeah
1: so you're rich, have a huge yard and play golf a lot?
2: no i actually live on a farm and most of my friends and i are middle class
1: oh
