this has bugged me...
round at a friends house recently, she opened a packet of biscuits to give the children. The first few were broken, not badly just like in two or three biscuits. She threw them in the bin and then shared out some of the others. I was astounded. Is she extremely posh? Is it me? What's wrong with eating them? (She lives in an ordinary house seems ordinary etc. Even if she didn't want to hand them out which I could understand if you are uncertain about politeness why not just put them to one side or in a biscuit tin?)

That's not posh, that's very council estate. Throwing good food away!

Threw them in the bin??!!

What a waste!
No, genuinely, what a waste!!

She's not posh, 'real' posh people don't give a hoot if their biscuits are broken or not because they are secure enough in their poshness not to have to 'prove' it by what they eat!!! (As opposed to wannabe poshers a la Hyacinth Bucket).

So glad it's not me! Now there's a thought (her background) Colditz! Now have an awful thought that she doesn't know me and may have thought that I would disaprove - oh dear.
