Dude used to work for KFC back in the day. He was a VP and was in charge of finalizing a merger between KFC and my grandfathers burger joint. At the last second Thomas disappeared and the deal died. Next thing you know, Wendy's pops up with my grandpa's menu item. Most menu names, Dave Thomas didn't even bother to change.
As a family, we still boycott Wendy's. I sometimes find Wendy's cups or bags in my wife's car. She tries to get away with it because she is, in a round about way, eating my grandfathers food. Our family curse of Wendy's still lives on today...After Thomas gave us the one figure salute, we cursed Wendy's that they would continually be haunted, one finger at a time.
