    Someone who attends Oxbridge, has quite a lot of money and possibly a PPL. Probably will work as a high earning doctor/ lawyer/ businessman and drives a Jaguar. Kids go to private school as someone has already said.

    How did you know I always do this? :hat2:

    Cheese goes great with wine. Wine is sweet and cheese is salty. It's a wonderful pattern to my palate.

    Your parents / parent has a decent, well paying, professional job. You grew up in a nice neighborhood. You didn't come from a single parent family (no dis on single parents that loved and took care of their kids), who was a drink and/or drug abuser, on a *****y council estate.

    And you can talk properly, with good grammar and articulation. You don't talk like a ghetto wannabe gangster thug chav. Or have ridiculous visible tattoos. Or piercings Or that ****ing insane big ****ing loophole in the ear thing. Or kids in your teens. Or can't possible spend any time alone, or read a book, you need to be with your 'homies' every waking hour. If you not ****ing random hoes, to add to your STD collection.

    Hmm in my opinion someone posh doesn't necessarily mean they have lots of money however the usually do.

    In my mind, being posh is usually just an insult to gentlemen. A gentleman dresses smart, act with honour and such. I do think being posh can most likely mean snobby as well though

    43 posts later, we're nearly back at square one. Thread unlocked. Don't let it descend into ridiculous arguments again please. I need sleep. :bawling:

    If you have an answer for OP, by all means please do answer them. If you don't, don't say anything. It's so much easier that way.

    Also, please do not quote me asking what happened or where your posts went or if you think I was wrong for doing x y z, please go to AtCT (here!) instead.
