    Inspired by a comment in the l'Eroica Tuscany thread, I thought I would evaluate where I sat on the middle class scale (ok, its Friday and my 11 am meeting has just been cancelled).

    Last Saturday I found myself cutting the grass in the orchard, on a ride on mower whilst listening to Cold Play .. which not only is sadly middle aged and middle class but also breaks several rules. That's life, you don't always realize what you are tuning into !

    If my 20 year old working class self could look at my life now he would definitely say it was middle class, although I stubbornly refuse to admit it.

    I also shop sometimes at Waitrose, but rebelliously refuse to eat quinoa.

    If I stopped working I would have no source of income other than state benefits. I am working class.

    I'm stubbornly determined not to have any class.

    I don't own the means of production, and my income is derived from selling my labour

    I'm not middle class at all, I'm extremely uppper class and a proud member of the aristocracy.

    Quite frankly why I'm mixing with you nobbers is beyond me.

    We tried to do away with classes in 1789, sadly, it hasn't work but at least we got rid of the top class.

  12. I don't want to be middle class if it means I have to listen to Coldplay.
