    Was just chatting with the girls over FB and I said my mum wants my sister to marry a "well bred" guy (my words), i.e. someone posh/went to a good school etc.

    My friends say its a classist phrase but I think its not...

    Was I being offensive? :dontknow:
    I don't think so. It might help you to keep this in mind.

    The amount someone is offended is usually correlated to how badly developed their social skills are. I say usually because some people do go out with a mind to cause offense, but most of the time it's down to someone not being well socialized.
