    Dairy Queen employee's honorable actions praised online [LINK]

    When a visually impaired customer accidentally dropped a $20 bill at a Hopkins, Minn., Dairy Queen, employee Joey Prusak said he was shocked by what happened next.

    "The lady behind him just picked it up and put it in her purse," he told Yahoo News. "As if no one saw it."

    Prusak said he confronted her about it. "I said, 'Ma'am, can you please return the gentleman's money?'"

    The woman denied that she took the cash. "There was kind of a scene," Prusak said. "I told her what she did was extremely disrespectful and she had to leave."

    She did, but she never gave back the money. So, Prusak went above and beyond. He walked to the customer who had lost the $20 and gave him $20 from his own pocket.

    "I felt it needed to be done," he said. The man thanked him, and Prusak didn't really think anything of it, going back to his job.

    This is an example of the famed "Minnesota Nice."

    "Minnesota Nice" is a phrase often applied to residents of Minnesota. What does Minnesota Nice mean?

    Minnesota Nice refers to the stereotype of Minnesotan residents to be mild mannered, helpful, and generous hosts. Minnesotans are believed to know their neighbors, help one another out, and to be polite yet reserved to strangers.
