Are you working class or middle class?

I heard an interesting quote on the radio yesterday as to how you define yourself as working class or middle class.

Working class shower in the evening. Middle class shower in the morning.

A close friend of mine, who died this week, was a miner's son with proven ability who was once told by a superior that he was not of the right class for promotion. He retired as a decorated Group Captain. He told me that the time he felt that he had really achieved something was when his Flight Sergeant congratulated him on his promotion from AC1 to Leading Aircraftsman with the words "No longer will you sweep the hangar floor".

I know men who were Officers and Gentlemen but I also knew Officers who were not Gentlemen and many Gentlemen who were not Officers.

Anyone who has really lived knows very well how to judge people, it is not birth or money it is who you are what you do and how you treat other people.
