Dairy Queen employee receives international attention after act of altruism goes viral
Joey Prusak was appalled when he saw a customer at the suburban Minneapolis Dairy Queen store where he works pick up someone else’s $20 bill and slip it into her purse.
So when the woman got up to the counter to order, Prusak refused to serve her unless she returned the money. When the woman refused, the 19-year-old store manager went a step further: He gave the visually impaired customer who hadn’t realized he’d dropped the money $20 out of his own pocket.
“I was just doing what I thought was right,” Prusak said as he recalled the incident from earlier this month. “I did it without even really thinking about it. … Ninety-nine out of 100 people would’ve done the same thing as me.”
