Cando Cutoff is a lumberjack who works just outside of Lancre , and he is humble. He isn't humble simply because he's a lumberjack, even if he owned 5 lumbermills he would be humble. He was just born humble. He plays a small part of narration in the book Maskerade.

He witnesses the witches Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax wait for a coach where the coach dosent stop. He (humbly) tells them the coach dosent stop there, and gets a long stare and a "Thank you" while they continue waiting for the stagecoach to Ankh-Morpork . Shaking his head he heads back to his woodpile, and to his suprise the coach comes and stops there (Not by choice) 5 minutes later. From his viewpoint the driver is very polite to the 2 old ladys, and he nods happily to himself, reassured that good manners and courtesy are still alive.

However, what he actually witnessed was the driver of the stagecoach being very rude for a short period of time, followed by Granny Weatherwax using mind tricks to make him offer them 2 complimentary tickets to Ankh-Morpork.
