    Non-poshos will refer to their parents as "my mum" and "my dad", whilst low-tier poshos forgo the possessive pronouns and just say "mum" and "dad"
    Extreme-tier poshos will regress to infantilism and say "mummy" and "daddy"

    The difference between upper class and lower class legs

    "Upper class legs are thin and have a kneebone equidistant between the hipbone and anklebone. Lower class legs, by contrast, were thick with a long thigh and short calf."
