    Their destination of choice for clothes shopping is the sports clothing shop and the jewellers.
    Their destination of choice for a day out is hanging around in street corners, the park or the shopping centre.
    Their dog of choice is one that looks 'ard, like a Staff (Staffordshire Bullterrier).
    They love nothing more than to play music from their phones at the back of the bus.
    Their only aspiration is life is to "sign on" at the Jobcentre and spend a large portion of their money on cigarettes, booze and weed.
    They're largely under-educated, possibly dyslexic.
    Their hobbies and interests are drinking; smoking; fighting; petty theft; loitering; shagging; listening to "wicked tunez"; and joyriding and doing donuts and wheelspins in the local car park (if they can afford a car).
    On the off-chance that the Chav is employed, it'll be in an unskilled manual labour position.

    I'm not from the UK, but I see it written a lot in here.
    Usually, but not always, belong to the working class population of the UK. Characterised by wearing sports gear outside of venues where it would be appropriate, such as tracksuits. Usually have an awful attitude towards other people; including a lack of respect for anyone and everyone, be it coworkers, police, doctors, teachers etc. Nearly always expect something for nothing and may have a massive entitlement complex.

    Usually unemployed, or if employed will work in fast food restuarants. Has no interest in education or educational attainment. Usually smoke a lot of weed and cigarettes and drink a lot. The only sport they will be interested in is football oftentimes. Generally horrible people who will steal and be violent if given the opportunity as they don't have morals either alongside lack of brain
