Hopkins, Minn. – A man who did the right thing when he thought no one was watching is now getting national attention.

According to CBS Minnesota, 19-year-old Joey Prusak observed a visually impaired customer drop a $20 bill while waiting in line at the Dairy Queen he manages in Minnesota.

Another customer then picked up the money and placed it in her purse, according to the report.

“The lady behind him picked it up, so quickly I thought she’s going to help him…when she went and put it in her purse. She goes, ‘It’s my money.’ I said ‘OK, I’m going to ask you to live politely right now.’ Then she made a big scene started swearing and then she stormed out,”

After the other customer refused, Prusak took $20 out of his own wallet to give to the visually impaired customer.

“I told him, ‘You dropped $20.’ I told him ‘I would like to give him $20 on behalf of myself and Dairy Queen to try and make things right.’”
