Warren Buffett, one of the richest men in the world and a major shareholder in dairy queen, personally called a Dairy Queen worker in Hopkins, Minnesota to praise him for doing the right thing.
Nineteen-year-old Joey Prusak says he was appalled when he saw a customer at the Dairy Queen in Hopkins, Minnesota, pick up a visually-impaired customer's twenty-dollar bill and slip it into her purse.
When the woman went up to the counter to order, Prusak refused to serve her unless she returned the money. When she refused, the young store manager went a step further. He gave the customer who hadn't realized he'd dropped the money twenty-dollars out of his own pocket.
Prusak has received loads of praise since a customer's email to dairy queen about the incident was posted online.
People are even sending him twenty-dollar bills as a reward.
Prusak has worked at the Hopkins Dairy Queen since he was fourteen and is trying to save money to go to school to study business management.
