    working class sadly. i hate it i want to be middle class as im fairly sure there are a LOT less scum (like everyone in essex) in middle class.

    thats if my definitions of classes are correct of course which they almost certainly arent. someone mind telling me the differences?
    Woah, I live in Essex...

    I tried this from my parents' point of view (as obvs currently a student so things like housing + income don't count), it came up with established middle class -

    • Enjoy a diverse range of cultural activities
    • Went to university
    • Are comfortably off, secure and established


    For cultural activities, it's been going down the football, or to a concert every now and then at most, never to museums or the theatre (I've never even seen a pantomime) etc, both left education at 16, and though they're not struggling, I wouldn't say comfortably off either nor established.

    So... I don't think this is particularly accurate lol.

    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.
    Upper, but not stable. We've hit hard times.

    Ok- so I went to private school and grammar school (obvs not at the same time) so idek what that counts as...

    I wouldn't consider myself "posh" (not that upper and posh are necessarily interchangeable in meaning), hence the "ish"... also my parents came from like lower class/working class backgrounds so idk.

    By family income and all that stuff I would be upper, but I feel upper middle.

    That's probably upper-middle, since "upper" for most people is the sole aristocracy, with some exceptions (maybe). I think that there might be some abuse of the term "upper class" in this thread. "Upper-middle" for me has a wide meaning, it's significantly distinct from "middle" and definitely includes high earners, old money and people considered "rich".

    Um... I'm from Essex but although I'm traditionally lower middle I got into a very middle class grammar school. Yes, we have more than our fair share of scum types, but we're not all like that.
