HOPKINS, Minn. - It's a story that has hit national radio and TV. It's all over the Internet, and positive comments continue to be posted online.
But there are those who feel compelled to meet Joey Prusak in person.
"Are you enjoying your new-found celebrity?" smiled one customer.
"Thank you so much for what you did," expressed another.
"We need more people like him," a fan said at the KARE 11 Facebook page.
"Way to go young man," wrote another.
Prusak refused to serve a customer at the Hopkins Dairy Queen that he manages until she returned a $20 bill that was dropped by a man who suffers from impaired vision.
"Business has gone up, obviously," smiled Prusak, while another customer walked in.
There's a bounce in business when autumn usually brings a dip. One of the more notable moments from the past couple of days was a phone call.
"He just called the Dairy Queen phone," smiled Prusak.
The call from billionaire Warren Buffett made Joey's day.
Berkshire Hathaway owns DQ. Buffett is CEO, so it only made sense he would give the manager that's made headlines a call.
"He asked, 'How's your day?' I said, 'I'm doing real well,'" laughed Prusak. "And we just chit chatted a little bit and he said that he would like to keep in touch with me."
Buffett also extended an invitation to a business meeting in Texas.
Joey has been given several hundred dollars over the last few days and the Minnesota Wild invited him and his buddies to a game in a suite. But as the calls and texts keep coming, one has to wonder where this is heading?
Joey's passion is race car driving ... NASCAR? Sponsorship?
In all seriousness, he is running in the Big 8 Division at Elko Speedway and if anybody feels like they may want to sponsor him for the 2014 season feel free to get a hold of him at the Hopkins DQ.
