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.

Connecticut is one state that just can't make up its mind...
Hey what's up?
Not much.
You're from Connecticut, right?
Yeah.
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 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.

My native state, Connecticut. If you can spell it you must be from there. But where? Certainty not Fairfield County, that appendage of New York. We hear tell it was seized in colonial times because New York wanted Long Island. No, that is in NO WAY The Nutmeg State. And hey, we ARE the Nutmeg State, not some hoypaloy Constitution State, let’s be real. Yes, I am from Connecticut, New London County to be exact. We sometimes think we are the forgotten part. The Merritt Parkway and Berlin Turnpike don’t run through our part of the state. Hartford keeps neglecting to fund Route 11.

We are the quiet seafaring part of the state. Picturesque harbors, quaint small towns and a deep Swamp Yankee heritage. Corn fields growing in the summer sun and ton of apples and apple cider in the fall from our numerous farms. Yup, we still have them. We also have those New England accents, us and Windham County to the north. We are diehard BoSox fans, Celtics, Bruins and Pats, too. We are where Whalers put out in the hunt for whale oil and where the first ship powered by atomic energy set sail as well. Today it rests as a national monument, moored in the Thames River at the main gate of the United States Submarine Base New London in Groton. We also have the most popular attractions in the state, Mystic Marinelife Aquarium and The Mystic Seaport. Oh, and did I mention our Native Americans? Their creative buisness side burst forth and spawned two mega casinos and show places, Mohican Sun and the largest casino in the world, Foxwoods.

Yup, we ARE Connecticut
Swamp Yankee: "Where you from"?
Fairfield Resident: "Connecticut"!
Swamp Yankee: "By golly so am I. What part"?
Fairfield Resident: "Fairfield".
Swamp Yankee, in disgust. "That ain't Connecticut you are an branch of New York City, not fit for human beings to live in"!

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.

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
