What kind of background did the interviewer act dismissive toward?  I am wondering because I come from a very, very tiny town and am contemplating mentioning that in an interview to demonstrate my motivation, jumping hurdles, etc.  Would that be a bad idea?  I feel like some of them would look down upon that.

bradley - if part of what makes you you is coming from a small town and overcoming the hurdles that creates, I would absolutely mention it.  I think the worst thing you can do in an interview is try to hide who you are or try to be someone that you are not.  Sounds like to me you have a good story to tell.  I'd tell it.
