An etiquette expert has revealed the words that prove if you’re posh or not.
 
William Hanson claims saying "alcohol" instead of "booze" and "restaurant" over an "eatery" signifies you are upper class. Popping to the "lavatory" instead of the "toilet" and relaxing in the "drawing room" not the "lounge" also signals that you are posh.
