He is nicer now than before

I was at Ikea restaurant for lunch. I was trying to get my cutlery but a fat old guy got in my way. "Oops" he exclaimed almost bumping into me. " My apology... erh erh..after you" he gestured me to get my cutlery. His tone of voice was polite and somewhat familiar. I couldn't recognize him at first but after a few seconds, I remembered him as a former SIA captain. He smiled at me and I reciprocated. I don't think he recognized me.
This captain wasn't a nice person to work with. He was arrogant and aloof. But now that he has retired, he seemed to be a better and polite person.
Sometime, I think people become better and nicer as they grow older.....but then why wait till your dying days to be nice to others?

It must be hard to find polite Singaporeans.Pendidikan Moral might help.
