one has a mid-morning sherry. In a cut glass tumbler.

Not an early-morning livener of Stella from a can.

Glad I'm not alone in using the word and those of a certain age will remember Tery Wogan fans referred to as TOGs too (Terry's Old Geezers).

BTW, you also know you're posh when you spend £3k on a Selhurst Executive Box and don't watch the game.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

My wife ticks the first two of those. She also had great grandparents who lived in India.

Another small indicator of poshness is, when eating a bread roll you don't bite into it but break bits off.

Years ago a double-barrelled name was a good sign but in the age of "blended families" that one doesn't work any more.

And my favourite. I was on an offsite course with a very arrogant woman who spent the entire week ignoring me or looking down her nose at me or making snotty remarks.

It turned out we both lived in Beckenham so I gave her a lift home only she lived in Elmers End not Beckenham and her place was not as nice as mine. Karma.

A bit like in my Bromley days, people who lived in Downham used to just say they lived in Bromley!! I even knew someone who used to say he lived in Catford rather than admit he lived in Downham

The only thing good about Catford is that it is not Lewisham.

Spot on. That reminds me of something said by the late Alan Clark (Conservative MP, owner of Saltwood Castle in Kent, and wonderfully politically incorrect). He apparently told a journalist that Michael Heseltine didn't have the right social background. The journalist pointed out that Heseltine was an ex-public schoolboy, to which Clark retorted, Yes, but he's one of those chaps who's had to buy his own furniture.

In other words you’re not that ambitious or driven or even care because of the old money behind you, which hasn’t all gone…yet…because you haven’t sold the big assets…yet

One NEVER drinks sherry from a tumbler, unless one is uncouth.

Fair point I have good memories of Catford, the big cat, regency snooker club and the first night club I ever went in(J.Arthurs)
