A bad career move. Home to the meanest people in the world. Common place for yellers and rude assholes. A place where people are extremely nice to you, just before they rip you off and ruin you financially. A wonderful place, but only for them. Look carefully and most of them have horns. George W. Bush’s birth place.
1. Dude why are you yelling and cursing at me, all I did was say hello to you. Are you from Connecticut or something?

2. You: I am truly sorry that you suffer from Tourette syndrome? Red Neck: No I don’t, I am just a white trash from Connecticut and you are a person of a color and I think you smell.

3 Lorin: Dr. I need medicine for crabs. Doctor: Did you have sex with a prostitute? Lorin: No, my wife is from Connecticut, and I am a fag.

4. I made 50K in 2008, and I have been working for 34 years. I think am so rich because I am from Connecticut.

5. I pulled a Connecticut thirteen years ago. I was unemployed for two years, and my career hasn’t recovered yet.

6. Main Connecticut industries: Gambling. Prostitution. Drugs. Unemployment insurance. Corporate welfare. Government bailout. Bankruptcy. Food poisoning.

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

While outsiders may think of millionaires when they hear Connecticut (just like people think of Hollywood and Malibu when they hear California), the notion of it being a fabulously wealthy state is true only in a handful of towns in southwestern and central CT. While it is the richest state in the US, it also has two of the poorest cities in America--Hartford and Bridgeport. The few very wealthy people in CT are so incredibly rich that they skew the data, making the people of CT look richer than they really are. Go for a drive in Hartford, Bridgeport, Waterbury, New Haven, New Britain, or Willimantic as well as the rich places near NYC to get an accurate picture of the state. Connecticut people who live outside Fairfield County hardly even consider it to really be a part of the state--all they have in common with the rest of us is the design of their license plates.
Westport girl: I'm going shopping in The City this weekend.

Bristol guy: What "city"?

Westport girl: Why, New York! What other city would it be?

Bristol guy: Uhh, I have no reason to go to New York, so I rarely do. "The City" is pretty vague to people who are really from Connecticut and not just suburban New Yorkers.

The O.C. of the East Coast - though more liberal and historic. Connecticut is home to Paul Newman and Martha Stewart and birthplace of the late Hope Lange. In the 1970s, a time of major demographic change, its governors included the abortion-obsessed Thomas Meskill and the late Ella Grasso.

Connecticut television is dominated by Hartford's WFSB, Channel 3, formerly home to Oprah's pal Gayle King. No other station in America is so obsessed with its frequency number. All the station's personalities wear giant silver 3s on their lapels, and mindlessly chant "three" at every available opportunity. Hartford itself is located halfway between Boston and NYC, and has a marked inferiority complex to both of America's two oldest major cities. The state capitol building, though, is a glorious marvel of Gothic Revival, and well worth a visit.

Connecticut is a state of about 3 million people. It has ultra wealthy towns such as Greenwich and Westport, where some of the homes reach well over 15 million. It also has very wealthy towns like Darien, New Canaan, and Weston. It also has very poor cities. It is also home to Yale. It also has two famous casinos which are the states main attractions
In Connecticut it would seem every thing is linked to money.

Connecticut is not all rich. Beside Fairfield County, it is really pretty normal. I live in New Haven, and honestly I do not feel CT deserves to have the "Rich State" title. It just isn't accurate. There are many "Ghetto" neighborhoods and high crime areas all around, people outside of Connecticut just don't take the time realize. We're not all rich, yes we make more on average per household, but its not all like that. If people took the time to realize CT isn't just of the home of Prep School snobs and Yale, then maybe they'll understand what we're all about.
Are you from Connecticut?

Yes.

So, you're rich and live in a colonial house?

Far from it, we're not all like that.

Sure you aren't.

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"!

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?!
