Kudos! Dairy Queen manager hailed for act of kindness

Dairy Queen manager Joey Prusak of Minnesota is being called a hero after refusing to serve a woman he saw stealing $20 from a blind man who had unknowingly dropped the cash. Prusak gave the woman an ultimatum: Return the money or leave. When she chose the latter, the 19-year-old stepped in and gave the man $20 from his own pocket.
