The good deed of a Minnesota Dairy Queen employee has turned the ice cream server into a national hero, after he stood up to a woman who had robbed a blind man and then personally reimbursed him.

“I expected to her to be like ‘Oh, sir, here you go,’” said Joey Prusak, recalling seeing the woman pick up a $20 bill dropped by the blind man.

“But she just stood there and watched him walk by and she then put it in her purse,” he said.

When the woman made her way to the counter to order, Prusak refused to serve her until she gave the man the $20 back.

“I told her ‘Ma’am, you can either return the $20 bill or you can leave the store,’” Prusak told CBS Minnesota, “because I’m not going to serve someone as disrespectful as you.”

The two exchanged words, until the woman ultimately decided to leave.

Prusak then went above and beyond the call of duty by reaching into his own pocket and personally reimbursing the blind man.

“I felt like the right thing to do was to give him the money,” Prusak told WCCO. “I said, ‘You happened to the drop this.’”

The good deed was spotted by a witness who wrote to DQ to tell of Prusak’s kindhearted act, and the letter eventually made it to Reddit. Now, Prusak is getting the recognition he deserves.
