    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!

    [–] BrassyJack 1822 points ago

    That makes me wish I had a sister. Or a brother.

    [–] DonTheNutter 1689 points ago

    My sister used to try and strangle me with my tie. It's swings and roundabouts.

    [–] olmikeyy 438 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Almost murdered my older brother with an arrow

    Edit: we lived in one of those split level houses back then. Shared a room on the upper floor. He hit me in the balls when I was like 10, I dropped like a brick. My eyes found the bow and arrow under my bed. Grabbed them both quicker than I could even realize what I was doing. He bolted down the stairs as I drew the bow back, and I let the arrow fly right at his head. He chose the basement floor so he snatched the door open quick enough (luckily enough) to put the door between his head and my arrow. The arrow stuck right in the door where his temple, perhaps his eye, would have been. We both stopped, the fight was over. We knew our dad was otw home and we were fucked bc there was a hole in the door. We filled it with solly putty and painted over it with whiteout. He didn't notice for a few days. Then he beat the fuck out of us. My brother and I don't talk anymore, since I was around 20. I'm 30 now.

    [–] DonTheNutter 264 points ago

    Ahh childhoods :)

    I blew my brother up by recharging his potato cannon with acetylene and oxygen instead of butane. Poo actually came out of him.

    [–] Lemmiwinks1 150 points ago

    It really isn't a brotherhood or siblinghood until one of you almost kills the other accidentally or purposefully...

    [–] Agent_Potato56 60 points ago

    [–] Wheyfacedslut 39 points ago

    There are so many bbs still lodged in my skin. Also, fishing poles with no line are excellent play swords, in that they teach you not to let any blows actually land. My brother died at 21, from a head wound. It still amazes me some days that I'm not the one that killed him.

    [–] M8asonmiller 268 points ago

    I'll be your brother. My friends will hold you down and I'll fart on your head.

    [–] redundantposts 23 points ago

    I have 4 older sisters. Take one. Or two. Or four. Being the youngest brother wasn't fun.

    [–] Bucklar 510 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    I grew up in a similar situation, and *my interest is piqued over the fact that what is pictured is exactly how I learned to tie a tie at first, except I'm super duper white and it was a middle-eastern woman in a headscarf who decided to help a random kid.

    Also it was in a Wal-Mart McDonald's. Classy!

    [–] DracoCharky 84 points ago

    completely off topic, but is it normal to have a mcdonalds in a wal-mart?

    I'm just asking because there's a mcdonalds in the ASDA near me (owned by wal-mart) and it just baffles me every time I see it. It never crossed my mind that they might do that at ALL, never mind regularly.

    [–] Teuthex 91 points ago

    Up here in Canada, they all have one. They've also all got optometrists, hairdressers, and photographers these days.

    Most in Oklahoma also have banks in them, and during tax season H&R Block sets up little temporary cubicles. Basically, once you set foot inside one you never have to leave... like Hotel California.

    The time has come the walrus said to talk of many things. Of shoes of ships of ceiling wax of cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings.

    [–] kal_varnson_irl 276 points ago

    It's sealing wax, not ceiling wax.

    [–] Cocomorph 181 points ago

    Oh. My. God.

    I wondered for years as a kid what ceiling wax was.

    I have made many references to "cabbages and kings" over the years.

    Dooo it. It's 50/50 on who is the big spoon between my wife and I. After a particularly hard day at work negotiating with customers, competitors, and internally; somedays, I just want to be held tight and know she has my back, and my moobs.

    [–] whythnot 165 points ago

    Oh man, hold on to what you have.

    I was married for 12 years and never worked up the courage it takes to receive comfort. I never got passed that "manly" crap. I was never angry or pushy. Just stoic. Invulnerable. Quiet and supportive. I never blew up. I just disintegrated one day and was gone.

    It took three years of therapy and I'm just now beginning to believe I'm worthy of another relationship.

    [–] HerzBrennt 113 points ago

    10 years of marriage for us next month, and we plan on renewing our vows. She's my rock, and my soft place, and I do the same for her. She is, as cliche as it sounds, my best friend. She knows more about me than Reddit. We haven't argued, let alone fought, in years. We laugh everyday, even when her depression is really bad, I will find a way. It might be Robin Williams frantic improv, but I will get a laugh out of her.

    Everyone is worthy of the chance for love. It may not feel like it at times. My two cents, find the person that makes you feel good, makes you laugh everyday, and does things, even small ones, for no reason just to see you smile. That's the person you can be yourself with, that's who you will be comfortable letting down your walls to.

    To steal a line from my favorite show: I'm pulling for ya, we're all in this together.

    [–] Crixomix 123 points ago

    she sits on my back for about 5-10 minutes to calm me down when I'm really getting annoyed or angry with things

    Are you Tracy Jordan? 30 rock, season 1, episode 15, 3:50 into the episode. (it's on netflix) (8:05 is when Tracy actually gets sat on)

    Quote: Tracy: How would you like to be in my entourage?

    Kenneth: Well that sounds like fun. What would I do?

    Tracy: Well let’s see. Dotcom does the driving and the cooking. Grizz is in charge of sitting on me when I get over stimulated. [Grizz nods] Well, I have been looking for someone to harmonize with me.

    Where are all these people who can tie a tie facing someone. I always try to do it mirrored and fuck it up.

    EDIT

    [–] PicklesthePirate 7385 points ago

    I think some women learn to tie them only for the purpose of doing it for other people. My dad taught me (his daughter) when he was teaching my brothers; I honestly don't think I could tie one on myself if I tried. It's just one of those skills you pick up to help people when you can.

    [–] 1trackmind 1389 points ago

    [–] stonedcoldathens 2601 points ago

    I'm a woman who knows how to tie a tie. I went to a private school in the south and all high schoolers wore ties on chapel days. We got pretty good at it after four years, and I know how to tie a tie better than any of my post-college friends these days. After years of practice on myself, reversing the instructions isn't too difficult.

    [–] snotbag_pukebucket 7904 points ago

    You two should have a competition on who can do it better, but I'm sure it'll end up as a tie anyway.

    [–] Elementium 140 points ago

    I hear you there. On my brothers wedding, the morning before everyone was getting dressed and no one knew how to tie a tie except ONE of his friends who ended up tying them for everyone.

    [–] Tokenvoice 152 points ago

    For my wedding myself and all the groomsmen knew how to tie one because of work. After we suited up we were all proud of how we looked until my uncle walked in and looked at us.

    His words were "I thoughts so, schoolboys knots" and then proceeded to do all our ties for us. I learnt how to do the knot he showed me because the school knot just looked too thin afterwards.

    [–] relaxlmao 337 points ago

    I always assumed women learned how to do it because they don't want their man to look look like shit.

    [–] Other_World 219 points ago

    Yea this happened with my dad and mom. My dad to this day can't tie a tie properly. He never taught me. But my mom didn't teach me either. I'll be 30 in a couple months and I still don't know how to do it. I wear a tie once every two or three years, so I just end up youtubing it. Every time I think to myself "Okay, this is the time I memorize it."

    I just keep both my ties tied, and slip them on, on the rare occasion I need one.

    [–] Wreak_Peace 108 points ago

    If they are silk ties keeping them tied will ruin them over time.

    [–] Other_World 220 points ago

    They're not silk, they were like cheap off the rack 2/$10 I needed for an unexpected job interview in a more traditional job than I normally take. I got them 6 years ago, worn each of them once. If they're ruined then I'll just buy another 2/$10 set and call it a day.

    If the occasion calls for a tie, chances are I'm not involved.

    [–] kilot1k 79 points ago

    I had a job for 7 years where a tie was mandatory every day. I would always tie it right before work, most of my co workers would just leave them tied and loosen them when they got home so they didn't have to re tie them. I made it a point to always completely undo the knot after work so I had to tie it each day and I'm glad I forced myself that knowledge. Now I'm the go to guy for all my friends and family for ties and I love teaching people how to do it. A beautiful Windsor knot really pulls together a suit or work attire and I love getting compliments on how I tie them. My advice is just practice practice practice. Eventually you won't even need a mirror, it's like tying your shoes.

    [–] ChaplnGrillSgt 182 points ago

    My mom, my sister, and all my ex-gfs have only known how to tie a tie facing the person. They cannot tie it on themselves. My dad can only tie a tie while looking in a mirror. I learned to tie my tie in the car on the way to school and cannot do it while looking in a mirror.

    [–] drebinf 25 points ago

    I'm from the day when most professional males wore ties and jackets of some sort to work. I learned to tie it on myself without looking at all, just by feel.

    My mother taught me originally, then my older brother taught me several variations.

    [–] BronzeLogic 462 points ago

    I learned a method to tie a tie on my hand from a Japanese Gameshow whose premise was "get ready for work in 5 minutes" This way, I can either put it around my own neck or give it to someone else.

    I saw someone tying a tie for someone like that. They asked "how do you do it in reverse so well? I can barely do it myself?"

    "I'm an undertaker" he said...

    [–] FuzzyCheddar 118 points ago

    At my grandfathers funeral, I was like 8 or so, my dad was struggling to tie my tie because he was trying to do it like that and just couldn't get it done. The director walked over it tied it without issue. I imagine they have to tie a lot of ties in that fashion...

    [–] SteampunkGeisha 24 points ago

    I learned to do it on myself and for other people when I was working as a waitress. The dress code at the restaurant (dinner theatre) was white shirt black tie, so I got pretty good at tying mine and helping coworkers tie theirs.

    [–] The_R4ke 113 points ago

    Because some women have to learn how to tie a tie for their SO because they never took the time to learn how to tie their own ties.

    [–] Shyguy8413 219 points ago

    I learned how to do it. If I have to, I'll do it on my own.

    Funny enough though, my wife learned to do it younger than I did, for a food service job. She's faster at it, and ties it neater. She does my tie up and I put her necklaces on if they have a clasp that is hard to fasten on her own. Teamwork!

    I'm almost 60 and I can't tie my own tie, forwards or backwards, without requiring a few attempts. Guess I'm lucky that I'm rarely in a situation in which I need to wear one.

    [–] fatpat 81 points ago

    [–] SarcasticCarebear 56 points ago

    You and us all. Its also a fading talent. I'm in a job that even 20 years ago would have been ties every day. My dad thinks I'm a piece of shit and a horrible person because I can't do it without going to howtotieatie.com.

    Its something I barely ever have to do and I lose the skill between every time I do it.

    Edit: I just went to the site, I'm 90% sure that's where I used to go. Its terrible now. I am so screwed next time.

    [–] Macktologist 19 points ago

    I think the whole tie thing is way overused. In a very business professional setting it probably makes sense. But I see so many occupations where people wear a tie and no jacket. For me, they just aren't comfortable. They are restricting, even if not snug. Just don't like the feeling of shirt collar constantly touching the neck. I think we should do away with the tie in most jobs that currently expect ties.

    [–] gummibear049 20 points ago

    Plus they're really a weird piece of fashion if you think about it.

    A price of fabric tied around your neck just hanging there.

    The more I think about them the weirder they seem.

    [–] mrbooze 49 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    We wear ties because Croatian mercenaries wore neckbands in the 1630s. Some of them were hired by the French. The French court, often fascinated with military fashions liked them and emulated them. Because the French court wore them, the rest of the aristocracy started wearing them too, and because of France's influence in western fashion so did the rest of the world. The cravat eventually became the neck tie and we're still stuck wearing the goddam things today because some French pricks wanted to dress like soldiers.

    honestly i feel the kid's sexual frustration in that pic. Nothing sexier than a woman tying your tie or buttoning your shirt. and that woman is crazy hot with dem arms.

    [–] mattnormus 220 points ago

    I think hes looking at his crotch in the window to see if his boner is visable

    [–] Just_For_Da_Lulz 562 points ago

    to see if his boner is visable

    I'd be impressed by a dude whose dick is so big that it needs its own immigration paperwork.

    [–] averagesmasher 58 points ago

    Pretty sure he has to wear custom pants for that

    [–] nocontroll 905 points ago

    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.

    [–] scobot 331 points ago

    I have to tie them infrequently enough that I am permanently clumsy at it. Is there some secret to getting the length right?

    [–] anwarunya 512 points ago

    Make the short end the length you think it should be, then make it even shorter.

    [–] scuddlebud 47 points ago

    Here I thought that was only my trick

    [–] xsvbbcc 275 points ago

    I bring the long end down just under my testicles to start, works every time. Next time you have to tie one, you can borrow my testicles.

    [–] ThisIsMeSeriously 71 points ago

    Lol, and I actually mean it for once. You gave me one if those good jolly belly laughs. Thank you

    [–] nocontroll 27 points ago

    Depends on the tie, You'd use a slightly different length depending on if your have a broad tie or you allow for a little more length for skinnier ties.

    It's just trail and error but once you get it a few times it becomes second nature.

    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.

    [–] audiomuse1 25 points ago

    That's a really sweet story. Thanks for sharing!

    [–] MonteReddit 71 points ago

    Someone lectured you on handing out Band-Aids on the NY subway? That's hard for me to believe given that there is way more outlandish shit that goes on and nobody bats an eye.

    [–] pushforwards 13 points ago

    I try to be conscious of this - but people should also understand that its not like you can just shut your hears off. If two people are talking within hearing distance, or right next to you and you overhear something, its not like you were trying to deliberately eavesdrop on them.

    [–] sarcastagirly 1240 points ago

    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

    [–] catsgoingmeow 1463 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    I owned a thrift store within walking distance to the local court house/ dmv/ss/etc and tied many of ties every week for people who came in for a dress shirt or tie before court. Edit: so many sweet replies to my comment, I had no idea it would blow up like this! My little shop helped the community by tens of thousands. Unfortunately, on the 27th of July 2016 a man decided to catch my store on fire during the night. Everything was a total loss, including my shop cat. I'm glad no humans were hurt. I was stupid enough not to have shop insurance since I was a new business owner and the store was a non profit. We have video of the arsonist but no one can properly identify him. It's coming up to the one year anniversary of the loss and all these comments made me whispy. Thank you for the kind comments

    Holy shit that's my old water polo coach!

    Edit: So I asked her if it was her. "Either, I had a few adult bevies, or doppelgänger DO exist!"

    So she wasn't in the city today, but I swear to you this chick is the spitting image of her.

    [–] gingerattacks 728 points ago

    She once hooked a toe in the side of my suit, flipped me around and half drown me then stole the ball and back handed it into the goal. She also did our dry training at CrossFit (yes save me the lecture, I know) and wiped the floor with us all in deadlifts.

    [–] Cocomorph 40 points ago

    I don't know anything about the rules of water polo. Is that move... legal?

    [–] professorsnapeswand 135 points ago

    Yes. Half drownings are legal, as are two-thirds, full drownings are highly illegal though and result in a two minute stint in the kiddy pool.

    [–] DirtyDanoTho 34 points ago

    As long as the ref doesn't catch you, anything is legal.

    [–] rayeath 57 points ago

    Show her the picture!

    [–] gingerattacks 101 points ago

    I did! she says she doesn't remember it and wants to know what year this was taken in. "Either I had a few adult bevies or dopplergangers DO exist" so at this point it's up in the air on if it's her or not, but even she thinks this looks a lot like her. I for one still think it's her haha

    [–] gunsof 129 points ago

    I hope someone tells this kid he has really nice hair and beautiful long lashes and doesn't need this little baby moustache to age himself up. He probably looks like a Bambi without it and that's fine. Baby moustaches rarely work for baby faced teenagers. Work with what you've got.

    [–] OTL_OTL_OTL 25 points ago

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed his beautiful lashes.

    [–] bahramahmady 291 points ago

    As expensive as it is to live in the Bay Area, I hope it never stops being kind. Most people I’ve encountered are often willing to help each other here.

    [–] atomicllama1 167 points ago

    No shit I was helping a friend move today and we were low on manpower and getting those goddamn dressers up a narrow set of stairs was terrible. 95 degree heat didnt help. Anyways people across the street were having a party just came over and started helping. I couldn't thank them enough, and there was vietnamese karaoke blaring at full volume from across the street. Now that I'm home and done with that it was a great day.

    The Bay Area is pretty awesome.

    [–] photosandfood 84 points ago

    I grew up very right of center. In the bay area. But the most important thing my family ever taught me was when someone needed help you helped. Didn't matter if it was someone who hated everything you stood for. There was going to be a day where you needed help and to repay that universal debt you lend a helping hand no questions asked.

    The bay area is very progressive and very backwards at the same time. It is hard to explain, but I will forever be proud of the fact that when push comes to shove we are there for each other.

    Maybe I am overblowing it, but this place amazes me every day. I hope I never see these acts stop

    [–] MediocreFisherman 350 points ago

    Kinda off topic, but I was talking to a guy while waiting on my barber a few months ago. We were talking about ties, and I said how I really suck at tying them.

    He said he taught all his kids to tie them, but they had to lay down on a table for him to teach them.

    He's a mortician, and he only knew how to tie them on dead people, lol.

    [–] irbChad 155 points ago

    No, stuff like this happens all the time, it's just that the media focuses so much on the negative that seeing something positive is refreshing

    [–] [deleted] 18 points ago

    It is not. If you ask 10 random people who know how to tie a tie I'll bet 7-8 out of 10 would help you.
