stupid forward of the day.... probably a couple years old --------- You Know You're From Connecticut When... You thought that the only highways were 91 and 84. You thought everyone couldn't buy beer after 8 pm You or someone you know has attended UCONN You still think that the Whalers are cool. You don't have an accent when you talk You have known at least 2 preppy rich kids from Fairfield who listen to Phish. UCONN basketball rules and no one can tell you different You still don't understand why people say that Connecticut is the richest state Your best friend went to Central, Western, Eastern and finally Manchester Community College. Your Mom works at Travelers and your dad works at Pratt and Whitney. You go to Riverside at least once a summer Your parents actually care about the Governor, the Patriots coming to Hartford, the lights at Christmas in Hartford & Channel 3 news. You think Old Lyme is a shore town You think the Connecticut River is endless The town diner is the only place open after midnight. You root for all the New York or Boston sports teams, but NEVER both If anybody asks, you're from just outside of New York. You've never looked at a public bus schedule You think New Haven is the worst ghetto you've ever seen You can proudly tell an outsider about the Charter Oak. You still can't find your way in Hartford (except for that bar area near Union Station) You hold the door open for someone and they don't say "Thank You." There is absolutely nothing to do in the winter You live twenty minutes form either an Abercrombie & Fitch, J. Crew, or GAP. Your family owns more cars than legal drive. You carry your keys on a carabineer, but you don't know how to rock climb. The State is so small you know where all the speed traps are You can't understand why people don't understand what your talking about when you refer to a "package" store You've never taken public transportation -- unless on a "field trip". You have at least one friend whose house was built in the 1800s You know at LEAST one person who has been pulled over and found to have weed in their car Your house would cost half as much in any other state You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Connecticut.
