If you spend any amount of time at all on the internet, then you've probably heard the tragic tale of Brad's wife by now.
And if you haven't ... well, sit back, grab some tissues, and prepare for this emotional roller coaster.
Brad is a man, much like any man, who is married to a hard-working woman named Nanette, and Nanette dedicated 11 years of her life to working at Cracker Barrel.
But those 11 years didn't matter at that much to the popular home-cookin' restaurant, because they recently fired Brad's wife. And they didn't even tell her why.
Brad is trying to get answers, but Cracker Barrel won't respond to him. And so thousands of kind strangers on the internet took it upon themselves to push for the truth.
And that's why, if you look at any one of Cracker Barrel's social media pages, literally all you will hear about is Brad's wife.
The world really is an OK place sometimes, huh?
