WHAT??? Why Did Cracker Barrel Fire Brad's Wife!?!?!
It all began with this post on Facebook by a distraught man whose wife had been unceremoniously fired after eleven years as a server at a Cracker Barrel in Corydon, Indiana:
To add insult to injury, she was fired on his birthday. Byrd wrote on Facebook that the decision to fire his wife had come from the "home office" and not the Corydon location. As the silence from Cracker Barrel stretched out, the Internet took notice. It got a little nuts from there. Hashtags were born. Memes were made and hilarity ensued.
Once the Internet has found something fun to do, it doesn't stop playing. The continued silence of Cracker Barrel fanned the flames.
There's always one guy who doesn't get the joke.
The absolute worst thing you can do once the Internet has decided it wants something is to tell it it's wrong. Bad move.
