PM me details about yourself (you decide what you think is relevant) and I will post in this thread what you are.
Parents working class who struggled hard and succeeded in moving up, so that they could bring him up as middle class....but I detect that he knows that he must stay aware of his background, so that he doesnt become 'bad middle class' I bet he feels a little guilty about his position (underneath it all) (which is no bad thing as many of us might do)
Good work, creaky!
The guilt thing is more about knowing that I had options open to me that were based on my folks financial stability, options that not everyone could have had. Also the last bit actually applies a lot to how I want to raise my son. I think it is important for him to understand that working hard is usually the route to success.
wow, all i can say really is ...'BLIMEY' I didn't expect that.
Now Im just confused.
Sometimes psychotics cannot be assigned classes as they are merely 'sleepers' hiding withing a classification whilst quietly brooding over what really matters to them.
He is a
"Nimble aryanist with serious misunderstanding of the relevance of firearms atributes."
top trumps overule these
my right bicep is called "Truth" and the left one is "Justice".
sorry bout this but its really difficult to avoid
"comfortable guardian reading background, safe(ish) guardian reading present, but with commeasurate compassion and empathy to others that make this pill more palatable" ......suggestions.....get an allotment and volunteer to do some pensioners gardens
sounds about right
'guardian reading' because it has become a sort of thing, that some people like cg vilify (although he seems to read it more than most) (PS mrs knees reads it and I used to)
and sorry because the allotment/gardening advice was actually intended to be for alc**k (I mixed up something of his with yours in my mind......sorry)
i don't read ANY of the papers.
messing up mine and alcxxks data tho - unforgivable
I'm a homeowner but do 3 jobs to finance it and I'm struggling. I do a white collar job primarily, a retail job secondarily (?) and some freelance to top up which doesn't help much. I'd like a decent idea of what constitutes 'class' these days
actually makes it very difficult to want to box anyone into a class, some parents have 'risen' in class yet do not appear to have passed on the 'anyone can make it if they try' mantra on and others have been up but have not then taken full advantage of their privilage because they do have a concept of scoial justice.
So some people are in a similar position but have come from different places, and could appreciate the others stories too.
Upwardly mobile dad (sounds quite impressive).
Materially and mentally comfortable upbringing
In search of a purpose......I suggest allotment and volunteer gardening.....perhaps you could do it together with chris_budget
so we can see where we stand in the creaky class system against each other?
but first I need some more
I would like to see POs

I said Ilisten to donk ffs
and I have no idea what 'a Fank of Donk' is
hence I have given you a spread
s_a_d is Fank of Donk
I dont think he's qualified to pigeonhole us into awkward social conventions anymore
the board hearing was dismissed due to lack of evidence
just accept it......or shift your position a bit if its too uncomfortable
then you wouldnt mind sitting on his Donk
This is important life affirming stuff going on
I like it
but your surroundings have roughened you to be less/more than middle class.
Im not sure if sugar in tea is merely a deliberate attempt to have a working class affectation.
However I suspect that your state of mind has mostly opted you out of the normal class rankings, although you have to bear in mind that many other people on here are also 'transients' so Im keeping CG beneath you
that's what happens when you're raised by wolves
"stakeholder engagement professional"
let me do you
<doh! I keep messing it up>
hence I thought i should do that * as a correctiony thingy,
but now I realise that Ive just compounded the potential for wilful lurid misinterpretation.
So let me just say that I merely wish to peruse zxcvbnm's particulars
you luv zxcvbnm
i'll do mine in a bit
you are a young american
but it is the only reply thats I've sung.
And given that there is not much to go by and with my ignorance of american types I can't really do much better......although I am intrigued as to whether you can get to nosey in on all the interesting experiments and tech.
I am unemployed. You can just put me on the bottom of the pile. I'm not even looking for work. I'm going on holiday for the rest if the tear and will then probably have to marry.
