Act of Goodness and Honesty: Joey Prusak, the manger of the Dairy Queen store in Hopkins, Minnesota was serving one of his regular customers, a man who is visually impaired. When the man checked his pockets for money, he dropped a $20 bill on the floor which was immediately scooped up by a woman who claimed it as her own. What happened next is a story that demands re-telling. Prusak approached the woman and asked her to return the money. When she refused he gave her one more chance to make it right. When she refused again he told her, “Ma’am you can either return the money or I’m going to ask you to leave the store.”“I said ‘Ma’am, you can either return the money or I’m going to ask you to leave the store. And she said,’ ‘Well it’s my money.’ And I said, ‘Well, then you can leave the store.'”~Joey PrusakManager at Hopkins, MN Dairy QueenAnother Dairy Queen customer who witnessed the honorable act of kindness that day wrote a letter to the owner of the Hopkins Dairy Queen. It was then printed and pinned on a cork board for all the employees to see. One employee had the bright idea to snap a photo of the letter and place it on Facebook. That’s when the story went viral.
