There are a lot of things in life that many people can do that are considered so mundane that they completely take it for granted, not realizing that there are people out there who don’t have what others might consider basic skills. In this case, it was the ability to tie a tie.

While waiting at the MARTA subway station in Atlanta, Georgia, a woman was looking around and noticed a young man that seemed to be struggling and unable to tie his tie. Instead of just ignoring him and going on her way, the woman decided to approach him and asked him “Do you know how to tie it properly?”

When the young man replied by saying, “No, ma’am,” the woman called over her husband and asked him to show the man how to properly tie his tie.

A witness who saw this exchange takes place, Redd Desmond Thomas, tells us that her husband stepped forward without hesitation and then proceeded to give the struggling young man a step-by-step tutorial of how to properly tie his tie. He then waited and watched as the younger man repeated the process and showed that he was now able to do it on his own.

It is unknown where the young man was headed that required him to dress so formally. It may have been to church, a job interview, or some other occasion that called for the use of a tie.

What we do know is that the older couple’s interest in a struggling young man that they spotted in the middle of a busy subway station made a difference in his day, and taught him a skill that will surely continue to come in handy for him many more times in the future.

This seemingly small gesture of kindness that the older couple performed has inspired hope in thousands of people; the original Facebook post now has more than half a million likes and almost 200,000 shares. It goes to show that nothing in life should ever be taken for granted, and with just a few minutes of your day, an act of kindness can change someone’s life.
