Dairy Queen worker stands up for blind man-KARETVvidA 19-year-old employee at a local Dairy Queen served more than ice cream at his Hopkins, Minnesota store on September 10. He stood up for a blind man after his twenty dollar bill, dropped on the ground, was scooped up by a sighted customer who refused to give it back.

A typed letter of commendation now hangs on the wall of the DQ shop after a third customer saw the whole scene unfold and couldn’t believe how Joey Prusak, the manager of the DQ, had handled the situation, going above and beyond what anyone could expect.

Joey, who is the store’s manager, asked the elderly woman to return the money but she claimed the money was hers. Then, he flatly states he won’t serve her unless she gives back the cash. When she still refused to do the right thing, he asked her to leave.

“He stayed calm and never gave her any attitude,” wrote the onlooker in an email to Dairy Queen headquarters. “What happened next I would have never expected.”

“Your employee… took out his wallet and said, ‘Sir, on behalf of Dairy Queen I would like to give you the $20 bill you dropped.'”

Joey’s display of generosity shocked the onlooker who stated in his email that his “fate” had been “forever sealed” as a “life long customer” after experiencing such “outstanding customer service”.

A co-worker was impressed by what happened and posted the message on Facebook, according to KARE-11 TV. Others shared it and now it has now gone viral.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
