A Minnesota Dairy Queen employee is being praised around the country for refusing to serve a woman who stole a blind customer's $20 bill — and then replacing the man's twenty dollars with money out of his own pocket.
"I expected to her to be like ‘Oh, sir, here you go,'" said Joey Prusak, recalling the moment he witnessed a woman in the Hopkins DQ where he works pick up a $20 bill that was dropped by the blind man in front of her in line.
"But she just stood there and watched him walk by and she then put it in her purse," he continued.
Prusak said the whole thing happened so quickly that he didn't have enough time to inform the man that he had dropped the money.
When the woman reached the counter, however, Prusak demanded she return the $20 to its rightful owner.
After exchanging some angry words with Prusak, the woman eventually decided to leave.
But Prusak wasn't done setting things right just yet.
Once he was finished helping the other customers in line, Prusak approached the blind man, who was still inside the store eating, and pulled a $20 bill out of his own pocket.
Once the letter reached the Main Street DQ's owner it was posted on the employee board for the rest to see.
According to Prusak, in addition to all the admiration he's received for his selfless gesture, he was also told the expect "something" in the mail from Dairy Queen's International HQ.
