One for the Brits. :)

Basically, I'm on msn to one of my friends back home in England, and we're were talking about 'chavs'. I've been called a 'chav' loads of times, I sort of got used to it. But the thing is people really don't have a clue what they're on about.

Apparently you're a 'chav' if you listen to rap music, wear ugg boots, have your school tie really small, listen to RnB music, wear a baseball cap to it's side, smoke, sit outside mcdonalds, ride your bike everywhere, starts on someone for no reason and wears 'bling'. Well, this all makes me laugh.

Chav simply means; council house and violent, hense the name. Yes, some 'chavs' may listen to rap music, wear ugg boots, smoke, wear a baseball cap etc. But also, people who live somewhere other than a council house may do all of that too.

I just hate the way you get labeled for the type of music you listen to or the clothes you wear. It's just childish. And I know I'm sounding like a Mom(or mum haha) but it's just what I feel, and I know alot of other people feel it too.

Luckily, over here no one's really heard of 'chavs', unless I've told them of course.

Well, thanks for reading my rant. :) Now you can get on with your own lives happily.
Mind the hideous picture...apparently it's chavvy ;)

Cici, x
