A Dairy Queen worker has been hailed a hero after he challenged a woman for stealing $20 from a blind man who’d accidentally dropped it on the floor.
The 19-year-old Joey Prusak told the Daily News the woman, in her 50s or 60s, swept in behind the man as he fumbled with his wallet in the Hopkins, Minn. store.
“Before I could say anything, she picked it,” Prusak said.
He thought she’d give the money back, but she stuffed it in her purse instead.
“I was kind of in shock,” Prusak said. “I was apalled by the situation.”
Prusak told her to return the money, but she boldly pretended she had just dropped it.
“She looked at me and said, ‘That’s my money,’” Prusak said.
The moral Minnesotan explained he’d seen everything, but she only argued louder.
“I finally told her, ‘Ma’am, I’m going to ask you one more time to return the money or leave the store,’” he said.
Unbelievably, she still refused.
“Then I’m going to have to ask you to leave, because I’m not going to serve someone as disrespectful as you,” Prusak said.
She left, but not before unleashing a torrent of foul-mouthed abuse on the teen.
“She had some choice words to say the least,” he said.
