    No. Next.
    Only kidding. bored of that now.
    As you tell I am not posh. In IT.
    I would think most toffs either work for thier dads or have business which are financed with daddy's money. If not they are permies working in areas like client stratergy.
    Of course all that happens after they've traveled the world 15 times for their gap year or 5.

    its true though aint it. i was blinkered by all that a few years back. i got a job in investment banking at 26 and was kinda taken under the wing of a few managing directors. i kinda played the game of posh, toff, and got all involved in that tulip.

    then i left after a couple of years and then i was introduced to the real world.

    basically these toffs live in a bubble protected by large institutions for most of there youth and adult lives.

    My wife drives our too little angels, Tarquin and Trinny to private school in her 4 x 4 every day. Is that posh enough?

    There's only two classes in this life - those who work because they have to, and those that don't.

    Default Toff me not

    I am a Saarf Efrikan, the olny thing I have in common with toffs is that if someone calls us we will both say "Yah".

    no. being posh and thinking your posh are two different things.
    Anyone can name their kids Tarquin and Trinny, although you probably wouldn't want to, and 4x4 are for people with no brains.
    Private school - depends which one. Some cost a grand a term others can cost 3-5 grand or more a term.

    Round here you are posh if your tat's are spelled right.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    "Private" schools are middle class. He should have sent little Tarquin to a "Public" or "Independent" school...
