Default How posh are you?

Having discovered Ethos is practically royalty just wondering how many other posh people there are on here?

And what makes someone posh? So here is a posh test (I have a bit of time to kill).

Do you have a regional accent?
Do you bank with Llyods?
Have you ever lived on a council estate?
Have you ever slept in bunkbeds (in your own house)?
Have you ever eaten ham eggs and chips on a Saturday?
Did you own a pair of wellies before they became fashionable but you don't work on a farm?
Do you know anyone called Tarquin, Chester, Fabian or Margaret?
Do you still call your mum and dad Mummy and Daddy?
Do you own a pair of cords?
Do your dogs sleep in the kitchen by the aga or on the bed with you?

Any other good tell tell signs of being posh or not as the case may be?

Do you prefer your fish and chips wrapped in newspaper?
Does your eldest son go to Eton or Harrow?
Do you prefer football or rugby?
Have you ever bowled a googly?
Enough for starters...

Have you ever lived on a council estate? no
Have you ever slept in bunkbeds (in your own house)? holiday yes, home no (as only child that would have been very weird)
Have you ever eaten ham eggs and chips on a Saturday? as often as possible
Did you own a pair of wellies before they became fashionable but you don't work on a farm? yes, but did work on farms and lived in the country
Do you know anyone called Tarquin, Chester, Fabian or Margaret? Margaret yes, but that's not a posh name surely?
Do you still call your mum and dad Mummy and Daddy? good god no, never did either
Do you own a pair of cords? I have a blue cord suit - got it made here, it's well cool...
Do your dogs sleep in the kitchen by the aga or on the bed with you? the cats are in the bed (unfortunately)

BC, that's a #fail right there. One never says toilet It's decidedly non-U.
