A Hopkins, Minnesota Dairy Queen manager’s good deed got him a call from the big boss.

Nineteen-year-old Joe Prusak refused to serve a customer after she refused to return a $20 bill a blind customer unknowingly dropped on the floor.

“He just called the Dairy Queen phone and said is Joey there? I said yeah, you're speaking to him. He said this is Warren Buffett. I started laughing. I was like, okay. He's like, do you know who I am? And I was like, yes, yes, I know who you are. We just chitchatted a little bit and he said he would like to keep in touch with me and that he would like to have me come down in May when they have their meetings down in Texas and he said hopefully me and you could go and get some ice cream together and I said alright, that sounds like a plan."

Buffett's firm, Omaha-based Berkshire Hathway, owns interest in Dairy Queen. Prusak has also heard from Dairy Queen's CEO.

Locals have also flocked to the DQ to shake Prusak's hand and tell him he did the right thing. One man even gave him a $100 bill.
