A fast food worker has become an Internet sensation thanks to his act of kindness.

Instead of looking the other way, Joey Prusak stepped up on Sept. 10, to help a visually impaired customer.

It all happened when the blind customer came into a Dairy Queen in suburban Minneapolis, where Joey works as a manager.

While paying for his food, the customer dropped some of his money on the floor, including a $20 bill.

Then another customer grabbed it and put it in her purse.

Joey asked the woman to return the money. When she refused, he asked her to leave the store.

The young man then gave the blind customer $20 of his own money.

Other customers saw what happened and wrote to Dairy Queen.

The story has since gone viral, and Prusak says his phone has been ringing off the hook.

“Warren Buffett called me earlier this morning and we talked for about 10 minutes,” Joey told CBS Minnesota.

Buffett’s company owns Dairy Queen, and the billionaire has promised to meet Joey in person.

The 19-year-old told reporters he’s also fielded calls from talk show host Glenn Beck and the “Queen Latifah Show.”
