It was pretty funny. Best part was that they sang some proprietary, hand-clapping birthday song that was most definitely loud and obnoxious.

Oh you didn't know that? That's the default restaurant "Happy birthday is copyrighted" song. I always assumed it was nationwide but it might be West Coast. I know it's as far east as Texas but now that you mention it, I've never heard it in Florida, New York or Boston. I hadn't given it much thought.

Patient Zero might have been Red Robin but that is anecdotal with an n of 1.

If it's that "happy-happy-birthday" clappy song, I've heard it in Georgia, both Carolinas, Virginia and Tennessee, so not just a West Coast thing

I'm surprised to see they aren't all the same song. Guess I never payed much attention.

Fanx. Apparently Android 7.1 handles "touch to select all" differently than Android 5.

I reckon Chili's was the first and everyone else just sorta copied it on the assumption that Chili's wouldn't sue.
