Is my ketchup use on french fries out of control?
 
I'm having lunch now, and I've got an order of steak fries. They're pretty good, and there's probably 20 or so fries in the batch.

Now, this restaurant serves ketchup in those little packets. You know, like McDonalds. They gave me three little packets for my 20+ steak fries. So I asked for more, and they brought me four more.

Now, I would estimate that I probably use 0.6 to 0.8 packets of ketchup on a normal steak fry. I just run a line of ketchup along the length of the fry, and it sums up to that usage. That would mean that I need 12 to 16 packets of ketchup for this particular meal. I'm embarrassed to ask for more, but these fries are really gonna start making me thirsty if I don't have ketchup.

It doesn't seem to me that my use is excessive, but I'll also note that I never, ever get enough ketchup at a restaurant if I order fries and can't grab the ketchup myself. Am I an outlier here, or do others have this problem too?

A poll will be coming, but very slowly and then it'll glop into the thread all at once.

For poll purposes I will make the poll universal and use a small order of McDonald's fries as the measure.

Some places are switching to those ketchup dips instead of packets, which rules because I love me some ketchup.

Those packets are ludicrous. I'm willing to bet that the packaging costs far more than the ketchup.

Not the fries!

It seems to me that (a) the frie is just a vehicle to get the ketchup to your mouth and (b) if you ate at a more upscale restaurant who had actual bottles of ketchup, this thread would not exist.

I prefer mayo.

I don't go to McD's but when I eat fries I put malt vinegar and ketchup on them. Perhaps that would help you use less ketchup.
