Ahh Connecticut. Us Connecticutians are wealthy, intelligent and "well-bred." Growing up "inside" this state really gives you no view on the world. We don't experience racism for the few non-white people in the local high school were most likely bussed there from the inner city (but it's okay, they got to pick their bus seat). We make up for our few bad neighborhoods with the extensive sections with lush million dollar plus mcmansions. We don't know what it's like to "go-without" and don't intend to. We party at the meadows and don't remember the concert. Dave Matthews concerts in the summer pretty much qualify as state holidays (for the young that is). Taking advantage of the fact that our police do nothing, we ride around in our expensive BMC or Mercedes sedans and complain (illegally) on our cell phones that Daddy didn't buy us the SUV. We pop our collars as animals mark their territory. What is our territory you ask? It's in a good location you see; between Boston and New York.

A bankrupt (both morally and financially) person who lives in a very old worthless termite infested shack somewhere surrounded by trees, who has little life experience and a very high opinion of himself. A degenerate who makes a living by searching for a line somewhere on a piece of paper for the sole purpose of screwing others. An ill tempered individual who speaks with a condescending tone to and yells at anyone who doesn’t look like him. One who specializes in using people and then throwing them out like oranges. A very smart highly educated psychopath who lost touch with his humanity a long time ago, and will do absolutely anything just to have a little bit more than his fair share of a shrinking pie.
Normal person:

Nice NCAA tournament this year, are you from Connecticut?”

Person from Connecticut:

Fuck you. You are gay.”

A rich state, probably the richest in the country. It has many rich states like Greenwich and Westport (Where I live).

A lot of people assume that were snobs because we shop at places like Hollister, Abercrombie, Juicy Couture and have LV, coach, and pradda bags. And also have people like Martha S., Paul Newman, 50 cent and Johnny Deep who have houses here.

You can say that you might find 1 snob in like 100 people in Westport because that is true. And just to add as a comment

I think blond89 has mistaken info because people in Westport do not wear flip flops in the winter, we do not think bad things about New Jersey and New Haven. Also the cars at our high school are not worth more than our high school. Currently our high school is ¼ of a mile. Last comment WE ARE NOT GAY! This is just the truth from a girl who has lived in Westport for her whole life. In Connecticut there are some poor towns too so don’t judge places from what you hear. I agree with Martha, a lot of people in Westport do pop the collar.
One day when I'm walking in NY. A girl is taking a survey on fashion. And She walkes up to me and says
"I love that that LV Handbag!" "Is it real?" she askes.
I answer "erm...yeah"(I'm thinking to myself why would someone wear a fake one?)
"Do you live in Connecticut?"
"Yea," I answered
"So you must one of the girls that live in an over a million dallor house right?"
"yeah."
So she glares at me and goes Hmph, and stops off.

In the summer of 2010 a group of folks from Connecticut with perfect hygiene traveled to South Africa to support their favorite soccer team in the world cup. However after their team’s defeat in the early rounds, the group got lost on their way to the airport and were subsequently eaten by lions.
Headline News: The lawyer for a group of South African lions has filed a lawsuit against the State of Connecticut for exporting rotten meat.

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.

Some stuff you ought to know about Connecticut:

-Let's set the record straight, Connecticut is not really New England, go to Massachusetts if you want the real New England (but would you really want to deal with those awful Masshole drivers?)

-All the "New England" this or that crap in the state is fake, less than ten years old, and pushed by the state government in order to attract New Yorker tourists and there money, just like the Indian Casinos in the redneck part of the state (see Eastern Connecticut).

-Let's be real it's more like New York (Mid-Atlantic) than any New England state.

-It has many guidos (New Haven area, cough cough)

-It has lots of Jews (West Hartford's more Jewish than Tel-Aviv)

-It IS diverse (aka the anti-Vermont)

-Relatively well-integrated, at least compared to racist, overly Irish Boston

-It is fast-paced

-It has great (New Haven style) pizza. Boston sucks at making pizza, freckle-faced ginger massholes.

-Lot's of bids here are pretty.

-West Conn people say MAD, East Conn fag boston wannabes say WICKED every chance they get.

-It's not called a fucking Packy, it's either a bodega or a liquor store.

-Hartford and Springfield are NOT twin cities. Hartford wants nothing to do with the even shittier, more pathetic Springfield, Mass.

-Many people take advantage of the proximity to NYC and shop, go to ball games, see shows, and eat at the best restaurants in the world.

-No one goes to Boston unless they want to get drunk and beat up black people with Irish, freckle-faced, ugly, pimply, masshole, ginger red sux fans.

-Everyone ought to hate the Gaytriots, especially after they teased Hartford then retracted their plans to move there, because Hartford was not New England enough.

-People tend to like New Jersey better than Massachusetts. Who cares how it smells, people in Jersey won't hate you and be snobby, WASPY, elitist shits like any masshole would.

-People really aren't that snobby. And those that are, they can go fuck themselves. If you act snobby, you will be compared to Bostonians (Red Sox fan massholes), because they are snobby, do you really want that?

-If you live west of the Connecticut River, you root for NY teams.

-If you are a minority, you root for NY teams (Boston is too damn racist... if you don't believe me, just Google "boston racist").

-If you live east of the Connecticut
River, you root for Boston teams and pretend to live in Massachusetts.

-If you like the Red Sox and live in Yanks territory (West Conn) you are VERY rude and vocal about it.

-If you like the Yanks and live in Red Sox territory (East Conn) you are quiet and unassuming--you don't want to piss off the drunk, belligerent asshole Boston fans.

-East of the river is the only part of the state that can be argued as being part of the true New England. People here are ornery and reserved (nice way of saying parochial) like Massholes.

-Most people in the state live in Western Connecticut (more populated and industrialized)

-The majority of the population lives in metro NYC (Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven counties combined)

-It's true that many people are wealthy, but many are also impoverished.

-There ARE indeed rich people outside of Fairfield County.

-Long Island Sound can be dirty in areas.

-People are real, unlike Fakeifornia.

-Nobody in this state (meaning YOU eastern Connecticut) liked the Red Sox prior to 2004.

-Hartford and Bridgeport are very dangerous. Waterbury and New Haven are also pretty bad, but not as much as those two.

-Hartford isn't a city, it's a big shitty town. New York is a city. Nobody in West Conn cares about Boston.

-Central Connecticut gets overrun on weekends by New Yorkers, New Jersyans, Rhode Islanders, and Massholes who like to shop here and not at their own fucking stores.

-An enormous wall should be built to keep the Massholes out, that, or $50 tolls to get in from Massachusetts.
Tourist: Connecticut is quintessentially New England.
Me: No it ain't. Massachusetts is a shithole we DON'T want to associate with.
Tourist: How would you know?
Me: I fucking live there.

The state people try to hate on or don't know the geographical location of and secretly wish they were from. Jealousy runs deep once someone finds out you're from the land of nutmeg and Franklin Giant Grinder and they aren't. Those who can, go to Connecticut. Those who settle for mundane and average stay in some god forsaken hell hole somewhere else.
person 1: hey where are you from?
person 2: Connecticut?
Person 1: I'm gonna just give up on life because im not from such a cool place.

Person 2: Don't be so hard on yourself..not all of us can come from the best state. It really must suck being you though.
