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.

My home!!
-When outsiders think of connecticut, they think $$$.
This is true, but ONLY for Fairfield County. Yes, there are some towns that are exceptions like Ridgefield, but I've never really been anywhere outside the FC. CT is what you think of when you think New England. We are New York, but with lighthouses and sailboats, and no trashy beaches, just ones you walk barefoot through at sundown. We are Mass. without the majorly annoying accents, and the Red Sox obsession(i don't know if other parts of CT like the Red Sox). Houses range from a peice of crap being $500,000+, and a decent/nice house being $1,000,000+ at minimum. The school systems are great, but people go to Prep School anyway. This state is simply amazing.
It is beautiful, the snow lightly dusts all the state, and the fall foliage is to die for. The summers are hot, but not way too hot (thought it gets quite hot). There is no doubt this state is rich like me. The infamous Greenwich, Westport, Weston, Easton,New Caanan, Wilton, Darien. This state rocks my socks. And for that girl who lives in Westport (i live in Weston) New Jersey is a dumphole, trust me (it's not just CT-ers who think this). Flip flops are not worn in the winter though..... Nevertheless we preps just by association. I love this state, but i must leave it cause it's getting on my nerves!it's too perfect!
I love Jewish Connecticut-ites!!
-Boy Meets World- actual episode
Shawn: Wait, are you telling me that you were some rich kid when you were growing up? Did you have a stone wall?!
John: Yeah, I grew up in some rich town called Westport, CT. All I did was hang out with other snobs, but I finally got out of that place.
Shawn: You're from CONNECTICUT?!

Where New Yorkers come and live for the summer and or in retirement. The state that is in fact, the wealthiest state, but the old retired people refuse to put money into good causes. Where New Yorkers tend to not obey many of Connecticut's traffic laws, have no problem cutting you off, and still talk on thier cell phones while in the car. The area where "Raggies" are most prevalent in lower class towns.
My neighbors are from NewYork... They ask me not to plow thier snow because they like the "pristine" look. Until the Snowplow comes by later and totally ruins it for them.

My old school still looks like a war zone. Due to the old people voting "No" many times consecutively to raise funding for repairs

My towns firehouse loses funding because the old people deny funding.

These old people from connecticut are definately rich, and about to die soon, but they white-knuckle thier money

A state that helps connect Boston to New York City.

Be prepared to endure long roads filled with 16 wheelers and people other than connecticut residents. People tend to ask themselves when they left the highway, and somehow ended up on someone's private road with nice cut grass and spacious trees. Don't fret... It's just the Merritt Parkway.
"Welcome to Connecticut! Have fun in New York!

"Are we in NY yet?"

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?"
"oh.. no wonder you just baught a 15,000 dollar dress"

Were from ct and were not rich. were from hard hittin new britain and were on welfare just like tha rest of the god damn city,and we alsogo to New Britain High one of the worst high schools on the east coast. 4000 kids and 10 fights a day 2 bomb threats and a Uzi a day. When people say CT is rich I say drive through New britain and ull change ur mind.This is what the students of New britain high school wear each day "RIP Chico" "RIP Shaniqua". my frend has 3 kids- shes 15.

You know your from New Britain when.....

-When lock-doens are a daily thing at school.
-When drug dealing is a hobby
-When yor freshman class has 1,000 kids then on graduation day there is 200
-Whens there 6 cops watching you eat at your lunch table
-When people ask yor where you from you say New Britain :they run:
-When theres hookers on evey corner
-When eveyone has a pitbull

RIP Chico, RIP Rashaun, RIP J-hud, RIP pedro

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"
