A photo of an elderly man teaching a younger man how to tie a tie while waiting for a train has gone VIRAL!


The photo, uploaded to Facebook by Redd Desmond Thomas of Atlanta, Georgia, has since been liked more than 494,000 times and shared nearly 150,000 times.

Thomas says: The young guy sitting down was struggling with his tie. 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 to this side [her right side; he was standing on her left side] and teach this young man how to tie his tie.” The older gentleman moved without hesitation [almost a reflex response] and gave him a step-by-step tutorial; then – afterward – the elder gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it. I was some distance away (but close enough to hear the exchange), and got even closer to snap this candid photo of the tutorial in progress before hopping on the train. I LOVE THIS!
