    My parents are common, my grandma is quite posh, I don't know, I voted common as I live on a council/ex council estate.

    EDIT - I was recently told I speak posh, but that is so not true.

    Same. Apparently we are posh, and I think it's because of places like Gerrards Cross.

    i hate to admit it but i'm probably posh - well voice wise anyway. I've been told i'm quite posh, which i hate - but it's cos my mum comes from quite a posh family, and i've inherited her accent slightly. The way i hear my voice, i'm not posh at all, but obviously the way i come across is quite posh....or what i prefer "Well spoken for"

    Good poll Katie. Maybe you do have a brain! hehe

    I don't think I'm posh but I've heard too many times that I sound like a public school boy or a BBC TV presenter that I guess I seem more posh than common. Plus I believe in good manners and being polite. Hate people who are terrified about saying thanks or sorry. I've lived in countries where people can barge into you, make you spill your coffee or drop your papers and just look behind and not bother to just say "sorry".
