"The older gentleman moved without hesitation (almost a reflex response) and gave him a step-by-step tutorial," Thomas, from Atlanta, Georgia, added on Facebook.

"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."

Thousands of people have commented on Thomas' post congratulating the older couple for behaving so generously to the young man.

The image has certainly made us smile.
