It was four years ago when I learned to tie a tie. A colleague taught me how to come up with a Windsor knot. I was 19, excited to be in the corporate industry feeling all grown up and mature – at least when dressing up only. It even took me some time – around 30 minutes to get the hang of it and I had a screenshot on my computer station with the directions.
My brother asked me to to fix his tie. After four years, what was a random occurrence became an asset even if it’s only to a small fraction. But that doesn’t make me a better person than the other. Heck, I still can’t drive a car which actually has more blow to my ego.
