    Born a member of the feral, tracksuit wearing underclass. Although uni students are probably middle class by default so we'll say that.

    Lower middle, the most reviled of all. Oh dear. A crazy paving patio. Gas-powered barbecue, it's changed our lives really. Sunday Express supplement on the nest of tables in a lounge with a coal effect gas fire. Magnolia anaglypta. Focus Estate and mum's Fiesta on the drive. Bottles of Cava. Loft conversions. Tickets for Starlight. He'll want a sticky bun at Reading Services. Dreams of a double garage. Snubbing Spain for the Algarve, well it's nice to be different. Lunches at the Carvery: a salad cart with four kinds of dressing. Orange squash and a viscount biscuit. You must see the avocado en suite we've had put in the master.

    There was a time when I was silly enough to find all of this only mortifying. What a snotty ****.

    What do you consider "upper-ish"?

    Well, private education is an important aspect to determine if someone is upper or upper middle class, although it may not be a sine qua non condition.

    :adore: My husband's family are lower middle class. He escaped because of Kent's grammar school system, which was how he ended up at Cambridge. His accent is entirely different to that of everyone else in the family. We're living with his grandparents now while we both write up. It is an adjustment for me. They are more financially secure than my parents ever were, but their lifestyle and consumption habits suggest the opposite I'm a sociologist, so I have a field day. Of sorts. You know, you should read Bourdieu's research on the "suffering of the petit bourgeois" :love: (hope that link works :erm:)

    Aimed at people in this thread or lurkers/future posters? I'm the only 'up-ish' person who posted, I think. I went to a private school for primary when we lived in South Africa. That was very different though, as mainstream education has so many more challenges than the British system does. Also I think fees were not prohibitive, and there were no cultural elements that TSRers would associate with private schools. It was religious, and conservative in the 'stand when the teacher arrives and always address them by their title' way. They used corporal punishment until I was 9. I was paddled a few times because I'm a stubborn and outspoken so and so :hmpf: :hmpf: But no accents or cultural differences, or old buildings... For secondary school I taught myself via distance learning. And I did A levels in a chavvy FE college in a dodgy part of Hampshire.... couldn't afford to bus or train it to Queen Mary's in Basingstoke or Peter Symmonds in Winchester :no:
