HOPKINS, Minn. - A 19-year-old Dairy Queen manager who helped out a visually impaired customer is getting a lot of internet and social media recognition for his heroic actions. 

Some even say the young man may have gone beyond "Minnesota nice" after standing up for a visually impaired man who dropped $20 and did not realize it.

Joey Prusak saw a woman pick up the money and assumed she would return it to the man. However, instead she put the $20 into her purse.

At first Prusak was not sure what to say, however, he decided to confront her once she reached the counter to place her order. He said they argued back and forth, while she continue to claim the money was hers.

That is when the manager gave her an ultimatum: "Ma'am I'm not going to serve someone as disrespectful as you, so you can either return the $20 bill and I'll serve you, or you can leave," said Prusak. "And she goes, 'Well it's my 20-dollar bill, ' and I go, well then you can leave."

Prusak then gave the customer who dropped the money $20 of his own money. 

Other customers and co-workers who saw the story were impressed and started posting it to Facebook and forwarded e-mails to the store's owner.
