A tie tutorial is today’s heartwarming story of the day

A photograph of an older man teaching a younger man how to tie a tie is making the rounds on social media today.

According to Redd Desmond Thomas, who posted the photo to his Facebook page, a woman approached the young man who was trying to tie his tie and asked him if he knew how.

"No, ma’am," he replied, according to Thomas’ post.

The woman then told her husband to show the man how to tie the tie, then had the young man repeat the steps one by one to show he had learned.

The post had garnered more than 800,000 likes and 200,000 shares as of Tuesday morning.
