But there’s another possibilityoption for Wade. He could get his old job back at KFC.

Saying it will “keep a headset waiting,” KFC president John Cywinski offered to re-hire Wade, who toiled at KFC as a teen. If he’ll work as the captain of a drive-thru window — watch out for Leo Getz — KFC will make a donation in Wade’s name to charity.

Why not take the gig? After all, buckets are buckets.
