Gotta hand it to people who learn and teach stuff like this that wouldn't necessarily benefit them directly. I grew up in a family of women so my sister had to show me how to shave and tie a tie, but she never wore one in her life. I asked her how she learned, to which she responded, "Had to learn for you."
Edit: Thanks for the gold!
You know he had somewhere important to go if he thought he needed to wear a tie even though he couldn't tie it. Very nice gesture here.
She seems like a woman who could hold you at night when it's raining outside with those strong comforting arms.
Tying a tie is one of those odd things.
Everyone struggles desperately with it the first few times but then after you figure it out you realize how ridiculously easy it is.
Something about looking at tying diagrams is confusing as fuck though.
This photo reminds me of one of the first times I rode the subway in NYC, it was early morning and the car was full of students heading to school. I overheard a young boy tell his older brother his finger was bleeding. Neither had anything to stop it, so the kid stood there sucking on the finger that was bleeding. I reached into my purse, pulled out a selection of bandaids and told the boy to pick the one he wanted. His brother helped him put it on while someone next to me tried to coach me on my faux pas of invading on the privacy of others on the train. "I'm a mom," I replied. "When moms see cut fingers, they hand out bandaids." As the boys got off at their stop, the younger one smiled at me and said, "Thanks, Mom." It was a nice way to get introduced to the subway culture in the city.
There's a Goodwill near my house and all the ties are already tied up just incase I imagine I think it's so sweet someone takes the time to give a s*** about people
