Ignore the lower lowers
My collegefootball coach said there were "9" classes of people in the country in terms of character and conduct.
1. Upper uppers
2. Middle uppers
3. Lower uppers
4 Middle uppers
5. Middle middles
6. Lower middles
7. Upper lowers
8. Middle lowers
9. Lower lowers

He expected all to never fall below middle middles. If you reached 6,7,8 or 9, you were benched for a number of games. If we benched those on this site that are obviously lower lowers--refuse to respond to any posts on this site regardless of the subject or what is said, the persons in question will probably bench themselves. Life is a bitch when you climb up on a soap box and nobody is listening.

6 and 8 still kind of similar too. Maybe coach wasn't as smart as you thought. I wish you guys could slow down this board. I'm just getting my book deal nailed down and right away I have more comedy material. I want to keep this book under 500 pages of comedy. Hard to do with this group!!!

Unlike Gary Heifner, bashbro1’s high school baseball coach told him there were just (3) known classes of people: 1) lower-lowest, 2) middle-median and 3) upper-crust; try and avoid #1 and #3 if you can during your lifecycle.

#1. The “proletariat” group which is a term used to identify a lower (lowest) social class of dudes; a member of such a class is known as a “proletarian”. Generally, people that are identified as having little wherewithal or wealth and was used derogatorily by Karl Marx until he changed this pejorative term to “working class people”.

#2. The “bourgeoisie” is a classification used typically to identify or describe a social class of people who are in the middle (median) or the merchant class, whose status and power comes from being a proprietor of a business or gainfully employed in a white collar job that required advanced education, and therefore lies above the “proletariat” class.

#3. Ah, the crème de la crème, the aristocratic class or upper-crust; a small number of individuals from the social elite or from noble families like George W. Bush, who get their power and wealth usually or most often through inheritance.
