A Random Act of Kindness by a Dairy Queen Employee

(KARE 11)

Joey Prusak, 19, works at a Dairy Queen restaurant in Hopkins, Minnesota. In September, a blind man purchased a meal at the counter. While paying, he accidentally dropped a 20-dollar bill on the floor. The woman standing behind him in line snatched it and put it in her pocket.

Prusak approached the woman and asked her to give it back. She refused and began cussing at him. He told her to leave, which she did, while keeping the money. Later Prusak spoke with the blind customer and handed him a 20-dollar bill from his own pocket.

All of this might have passed by without further attention but for an email that another customer sent to Dairy Queen’s management. She described the incident, which promptly went viral.

Since then, Prusak has gotten a lot of positive attention, including an invitation from Warren Buffett to attend a shareholders meeting of his company, Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire Hathaway owns Dairy Queen.

What a standup guy. I hope the lowlife who stole the guy's sawbuck suffers some really nasty contagious skin infection, rendering her even more unfit to cohabit with the rest of humanity.
