Socioeconomic class prejudice

I figured out a clever way to discern between the lower-middle (and below), middle-middle, and upper-middle (and above) classes by listening to the way they talk.

People are (or tend to be) below middle-middle class when they say "cent" insted of "cents" to convey any monetary amount over 1 cent and less than 1 dollar.

People are (or tend to be) above middle-middle class when they say "dollahs" instead of "dollars".

Just an observation that has been overly generalized into a rule-of-thumb, and shouldn't be used hard and fast to officially classify the masses.
