Stan despite now being fairly rich had started out from poor surroundings. He started out from the bottom taking any job he could . Has dug ditches and various other menial jobs before beginning his climb to fame and fortune. Very down to earth in many ways and thinks a lot like the average bloke in the street. None of the politically correct or feminst bullshit ways that nearly any -one who is any one pretends they believe in nowadays. Stan just comes out and speaks his mind and doesn't care whose toes he steps on along the way. He is very much still like the average Australian man in the street.
