Manners are a matter of training, not money, and an increasing number of people who have the latter disdain the former as 'plebian' or 'beneath them'. All you have to do is look at the headlines in any tabloid magazine to understand that 'upper class' and 'classy' are pretty much a contradiction in terms any more. We can thank the Hippies for this. Most of them were from wealthy families, and figured by rejecting anything resembling civilized behavior they were rejecting 'the man'. Once they (titularly) grew up and had lifestyle accessories -er, children- of their own, they raised little Miffy and Dunstan the same way, so now 'upper class' and 'crude, narcissistic asshole' are equivalent terms. Sad, really.
