Seriously? What's that mean?

So now, whenever we see someone do something really stupid, we say "oh look, they must be from Connecticut"

No offense....

Oh you wouldn't get it unless you were from Connecticut. We are allowed to do whatever we want. That's the law.

We go the end of October. I've already got my park bag packed. I'd have our clothes packed too if we didn't still need them lol
When do you move into your house?! That's a lot on your plate alone.

That is odd. I'm assuming they feel entitled. I'm born and raised in Ct, and it's an interesting mix....a lot of spoiled brats. I would have loved to be there or that, I would have loved to ask them what that meant!!

OMG, I'm going to use this if I get caught pool hopping. Wouldn't it be great if it was the same CM too.

Where in Ct are you?? I'm pretty sure only a certain area of the state can use "I'm from Ct" as their excuse for stupidity or being entitled!

Yeah, I'm from Greenwich and I take offense to that spoiled brat line. Just because I drive a $650,000 car that my daddy bought me and I inherited the family business does not make me a spoiled brat.

Actually I'm from 1 town over from New Haven and the only thing I ever inherited was my siblings clothes.

Born in West Haven, now living in East Haven. But I'm not to proud to not try and use the entitled line.

I was planning a wedding, honeymoon disney trip and building a house at the same time! Stressed to the max but I totally miss all the "planning!"
Glad it's over, but so thankful for all of those experiences! Good luck, and make sure you plan enough space in the laundry room - washer on the left, dryer on the right!!!

That's borderline "entitled, snob" area!!
I grew up in Manchester, and now live in the woods near the casinos. DH runs the family business, so we hear it all. But working 60+ hours a week is far from glamorous!
I've worked all over the state so I've seen all the different "types" that reside here. Thinking DH and I will use the "we're from CT" excuse when roaming drunk around Epcot during F&W!!

I assume the wink meant that east haven being borderline "entitled, snob" area was a joke. I'm a 10 minute drive from an area where they hand out gun shot wounds nightly. LOL. Yale does not bring New Haven to the entitled snob level even though it should. Crazy how one of the best Ivy league colleges is in a town that was proud to announce it had the first murder of the year a few years ago with someone being shot seconds after the ball dropped.

It's such a shame because its so beautiful around Yale. I got lost driving around the school one night, around the bars and such. I ended up getting pulled over for "creeping" and had to ask the cop to give me directions out!!
There are more good people here than bad, I don't think I'll ever leave the state, unless I retire to Disney

I used to work at Yale and the campus is absolutely beautiful, but for what those kids parent's pay for tuition it better be, and the town has so much history to it and it's buildings, but you go 1 mile in any direction off campus at night and you are really taking a risk with your life.
