This Heartwarming Photo of an Elderly Couple Teaching a Young Man How to Tie His Tie Is Sure to Make You Smile

elderly couple teaches how to tie a tie

With all the craziness going on in the world right now, it’s nice to see such a genuine moment of kindness such as the one pictured above captured in Atlanta.

An elderly man was snapped teaching a stranger how to tie his tie while waiting for the train.

Here’s how it all went down:

The older man’s wife spotted the young man sitting on a subway bench in a shirt and suit trousers, but struggling to tie his tie.

She encouraged her elderly husband, in a fleece and flat cap, to ‘come over here’ and help him.   

The Facebook photograph has been liked more than 300,000 times and shared nearly 130,000 times since it was uploaded yesterday.

It was uploaded by Redd Desmond Thomas, from Atlanta, who spotted the compassionate moment at the city’s Lindbergh Center.

‘The young guy sitting down was struggling with his tie,’ he explained in the post.

‘The woman in the red coat noticed, and asked “Do you know how to tie it properly?” The young guy said “No ma’am”.

‘She taps her husband and says “Come here and teach this young man how to tie his tie.” The older gentleman moved without hesitation and game him a step-by-step tutorial; then afterward the older gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it.’

Moments like these truly make us smile!
