Minnesota DQ manager's good deed gets attention
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Joey Prusak was appalled when he saw a customer at the suburban Minneapolis Dairy Queen store where he works pick up someone else's $20 bill and slip it into her purse.There is just so much right in this story, I don't even know where to begin. First of all, it puts the lie to that stupid canard of "The customer is always right". No, no they're not. Sometimes the customer is an idiot who can't find their ass with both hands and a bloodhound. And sometimes they're evil little turds who deserve to get flushed. At 19 years old, this kid has more integrity than a lot of people twice his age - how many others would have had the guts to stand up to the woman, including refusing to serve her?
So when the woman got up to the counter to order, Prusak refused to serve her unless she returned the money. When the woman refused, the 19-year-old store manager went a step further: He gave the visually impaired customer who hadn't realized he'd dropped the money $20 out of his own pocket.
And that he's 19 years old and a manager at the store? That's someone going places, folks. He's been working there since he was 14 - this isn't a slacker, waiting for mom and dad to hand him something. This is someone that's going far in life. He'll own that store before he's 25, and before he's 40 he'll have a whole chain of stores. And then some whiny college kid will bleat about how he's the "wealthiest one percent", and I hope he kicks that college kid into his own hat.
Kudos to you, Mr. Prusak - were that there were more men of your caliber left in this world...
That is all.
