So I used the word "cheap" in a conversation the other day, to describe an awesome recipe that I had came across. I was speaking with my MIL and SIL. They acted shocked and said never to use the word cheap like that, because it makes you sound low class and like you dont have money. They said to use the words "less costly" or "reasonable". Financially, my family, my MIL and my SIL are all on the same level, I think you would consider it working middle class. So what do you think? Do you think using that word makes you sound low class?

This is FUNNY!
I worked in a high end department store once. I answered the phones and directed calls. On my first day answering the phones somebody called and asked for "makeup". So I paged for "makeup" line 2. My direct boss about had a heart attack. Then for the rest of the day all of the managers came over and schooled me on the different acceptable department names. lol
You should have seen them the day the costodian paged overhead for "pantyhose line 1". All if the managers RAN to the office to correct him.
Some people have weird notions about words. I guess if you are associating with their cronies, you better start using their lingo.
