Is it because some grew up in the Bluff or Bellville or some in Constantia or Kloof or went to Hilton, Bishops, Michaelhouse or Paarl Boys. Human nature prefers birds of a feather. It is a social tendency to congregate with the familiar and not venture out of parameters set by the people who set these standards. I rebel against conformity EXCEPT where manners and consideration is concerned...I'm a classist, not a racialist...manners make a man and a lady and strong character .
I'm different and curious...I want to know how others feel and react from a different background. I'm not a snob, but I hate uncouth people with selfish, inconsiderate bad manners. It's the way I was brought up. Manners definitely make a man and character.
