Etiquette Verses Education

I stormed into an ATM to withdraw cash. I saw the security guard (in his fifties) seated in the corner with his lunch box. He smiled at me and invited me to join him for lunch. I thanked him and said no.
When I went back, I started to think about the incidence. This guy was hardly educated and still had the manners to invite a complete stranger to have meals with him. I recollected certain incidences where the people were known to me, well educated and to my amazement, never did any such act.
My father always said, "Education doesn't teach you manners."
It cannot be more true.
