An 18-year-old Aldi employee walked a 96-year-old man home from the store, and a photograph of the two has gone viral.


Not only is this heartwarming, it could also be the world's best buddy cop movie.

When Christian Trouesdale offered to walk an elderly man home from the Aldi supermarket where he works in Horwich, UK, he didn't expect that his picture would end up shared across the world (which is good, because if he did think that, it'd be kinda weird). Rather, as the 18-year-old Trouesdale told The Bolton News, "[it was just] something I would normally do, my parents have raised me to treat other people like you want to be treated yourself."

This picture was actually taken on Trouesdale's second trip with the man; the first trip was a week before, when the man came in to shop but "was worried about making the journey home in strong winds." Trouesdale asked his manager for permission to walk the man home, and his manager said it was the right thing to do. A week later, the man came back and asked Trouesdale if he'd mind doing it again.
