What is it with 47 year-old New Canaan women?

spoiled brats. I would know. I used to work in New Canaan on the main strip. They mostly act like grown up spoiled brats and talk down to anyone they think is not in the same tax bracket as them. And yet the thing is, most of them are driving around SUVs they didn't even pay for themselves.

Cath, there are bratty selfish thoughtless people in every race, religion, socio-ecomic group, town, city and country. Occasionally, one might even come across a strip employee with less than exemplary behavior. The 47 year old in this article clearly has significant issues; let us hope she gets the help she needs and learns to control her impulses. That said, there are many men and women in New Canaan who are really good, kind people. I am sorry that you have not had the chance to meet them in your work. Perhaps if you spent time somewhere else you might have a different experience.
