It sucks any time someone loses their job. Even if it was out of management’s hands, or totally deserved, that’s someone’s livelihood, and it sucks.
Perhaps that is why people throughout the internet have responded to the plight of a man named Brad, whose wife worked at the Cracker Barrel for 11 goddamn years and then apparently got fired on Brad’s birthday. Couldn’t they have waited until it wasn’t his birthday? No, they couldn’t have. As pointed out by comedian Amiri King, Brad took his problem straight to the source: Cracker Barrel’s corporate Facebook page, where he let them know what for.
Others, incensed at the injustice of Brad’s wife’s firing, refused to let the Barrel off.
The saga continues over on Instagram, where even a nice post like this picture of pan-fried haddock gets inundated with demands for justice for Brad’s wife, who got fired, if you will recall, after 11 years of faithful service on Brad’s birthday.
