Unless you're living under a rock, you've probably heard something about Brad's wife. Now you might be thinking, who is Brad? Many of us don't know unless you're one of his friends that helped make this post go viral. One thing that we do know for certain is Brad took to Facebook to share with the world that his wife was fired from Cracker Barrel, and he is not having it.

Now right off the bat, you have to ask yourself why in the world would Brad think it was appropriate to share with the internet that his wife was fired. Typically, getting fired from a job isn't something you want to publicly announce. When I first saw this story I instantly had second-hand embarrassment for Brad's poor wife. First of all, I was thinking "why would he believe that social media is the answer for receiving an explanation of her being fired?" Secondly, "did she know that her husband was publicly announcing her termination?" And lastly, "is there any injustice in her being fired or is her husband just a little over protective and on Facebook too much?"

Most of my questions have yet to be answered, however, since the post had gone viral we have seen some pretty incredible things happen. Along with the hashtags #JusticeforBradsWife #BradsWifeMatters #NotMyCountryStore, company's have even jumped on the "Brad's Wife" Bandwagon.

If Cracker Barrel doesn't work out, Brad's wife can rest assured knowing she has employment elsewhere.

Chick-Fil-A took to Twitter to offer employment to Brad's wife.

If Brad's Wife has any experience with putting out fires, the Depew, NY fire department is hiring, and they were sure to include her.

A small change was made to Cracker Barrel's Wikipedia page.

But with in order to see real change, we must have action. Timothy McCardell II created an online petition seeking "Justice for Brad's Wife." The petition currently has over 25,000 signatures. If you wish to be apart of this movement, I included the link to the petition.

Just in case you missed some of the action that occurred while people trolled the Cracker Barrel demanding answers, here are some of the highlights:

The moral of the story is simple, the internet is a crazy, powerful thing. One day you could be working at Cracker Barrel and the next you could be unemployed and made into a viral internet meme. So the next time you feel like posting your business on social media think about Brad's Wife.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
