Bystander praises Dairy Queen employee for standing up for blind customer

A 19-year-old Dairy Queen employee named Joey refused to let a customer take advantage of a blind man in line at his store.

A bystander observed the impressive scene, and wrote a letter to Dairy Queen to praise the young server.

A photo of that email, posted by Hungry_Penguins on imgur, is going viral.

According to the email, a blind customer dropped a $20 bill while in line at the Dairy Queen. An elderly woman picked it up — and put it in her purse.

Joey confronted her, but the woman denied stealing the cash.

He told her he wouldn't serve her until she returned the money.

Again, she refused to hand over the cash.

So Joey told her to leave the store.

The story didn't end there.

Joey then approached the blind man in the lobby of the store and gave the man $20 of his own money and said:

"On behalf of Dairy Queen, I would like to give you the $20 that you happened to drop on the ground as you walked away from the counter."

Joey told the man the whole story. The blind man thanked him profusely.

"I was in shock by the generosity that your employee had. From a customer of your store and a customer of DQ I would proudly like to say that Joey has forever sealed my fate as a life long customer of [Dairy Queen]. Thank you for outstanding customer service and for an even better experience," the bystander's email to Dairy Queen concluded.

On Reddit, Happy_Penguin wrote that the email is now posted on the wall of the Dairy Queen.
