It's hard to know what's posh and what's not anymore. In fact, the word posh can't even keep up. It's been booted off the "posh list" for good.

But why? Well, according to British high society magazine Tatler, the word itself is officially done. Instead refer to one only as "upper-class", for the foreseeable fancy future.

The news may come as a shock to some, and was released as part of Tatler's updated guide on how to be upper-class in 2019.

If you have a job and buy a newspaper, well then, you are off to a fine start. Do you enjoy eating sweets and being faithful to your partner? You are getting fancier by the second.
