Posh mums slam salad cream, hot tubs and trampolines as just some of the things that make you ‘common’ – The Sun | The Sun

A HILARIOUS thread has popped up online claiming everything from having sugar in your tea to owning a trampoline makes people ‘common’.

The bonkers list has popped up on Mumsnet, with nearly 700 people offering opinions on what they would brand ‘common’.

Asking people for their thoughts, someone posted: “What makes a person 'common'?

“In your opinion. Just interested.”

Among the bizarre responses were camping chairs, salad cream, the name Gary, Greggs sausage rolls, wearing PJs outside and ketchup on a roast dinner.

And it seems if you have a hot tub in your back garden, own a caravan, watch ITV or drink cold drinks out of mugs – you’re apparently a commoner.

Alongside the list of ridiculous answers, people also claimed using the term itself is out-of-touch, as well as pointing out that asking in the first place surely makes the poster 'common' themselves.

Someone else added: "Eating white sliced bread, watching ITV, and wearing ankle bracelets."

A third wrote: “Pastel coloured loo roll is common. Only white is acceptable.”
