Yep, that's two that I don't even know where to start because everything is usually so, so wrong and baffling. Sigh.

I cooked for everybody at the office one night. The owner had bought Filet Mignon and lobster tails, and I cooked some pan fried potatoes with bacon, and rosemary, then grilled asparagus with lemon and crushed red pepper....I butter poached the lobster tails and grilled the filet's to perfection then made a bearnaise for the filet.....

When it was time to eat, I watched one of the guys go to the fridge, grab a bottle of ketchup and asked if we had any tartar sauce. I was confused as to what to use ketchup on, or tatar sauce for that matter. He poured ketchup on the filet followed by several others, and opined how great it would have been to have tartar sauce for the lobster tails. Two people used the bearnaise and looked with horror along with myself over what was going on. Everybody liked the potato side although a few put yet more ketchup on those as well. The asparagus was eaten as is by all except two whom had never had it before, yet refused to try it.
The horror! My soul weeps. I can't even.

Saria, I have a cousin who puts ketchup on everything. We once went to a Japanese restaurant, and, yep, she asked the waiter for ketchup. As the rest of us facepalmed, the waiter looked at her like with the most mind-boggled expression I've ever seen as said, "This is a Japanese restaurant."
Eres o te haces?
^^I wish someone would tell my husband this. He doesn't even taste food before salting it, adding mayo, etc. It's so sad!

I think jarred Hellman's mayo is one of the scourges of the western diet.

Bottled ketchup doesn't even taste good to me. So......oddly sweet.
Yes, it's the fact that these people don't even taste the food before piling on ketchup. The Mexicans I've worked with do this with hot sauce a lot of times.
I just don't get ketchup. Why would you pile that on top of everything? It's just so sweet and overpowering. I don't even put it on fries.
Every once in a while, I like ketchup on a burger, but usually it doesn't do much for me. I'd rather have vinegar on my fries.

Vinegar on fries? Just regular white vinegar? What does that taste like? I'm quite curious.

I like ketchup on my fries sometimes, there are times when fries are meh.

nd...I'm wondering if you'd like the ketchup from Jamaica mon?
Malt vinegar. If you have real fish and chips, you'll get a bit of malt vinegar for them. The acid cuts through the fat.

I like fries as is, but my sauce of choice is aioli.

Ketchup, hot sauce, whatever. Why do people put ranch dressing on everything????????
SIB, I'm guessing it's malt vinegar on the fries (what you get when you order fish n' chips) it is the yum. I also like fries that have been heavily jerked with a side of ranch dressing. I'm a huge fan of spicy food, but rarely use 'hot sauce.' When I do use it, Chalula is my favorite flavor wise.

Ketchup on a filet? That is criminal.

My dear mother is making me gah
I'm a dipper so I love condiments, but I don't drown perfectly good food in them.

People have killed their taste buds!

Que the hell?! My brother's MIL is watching Giada and she's making madeleines and then she says how she's found a great trick --- ****ing cake mix. OH HELL NO!!! WHY? WHY? WHY? At most madeleines are flour, salt, and baking powder. If you're talking to a French person, you'll get a NON on the baking powder. That's not a huge list of dry ingredients. Why? Why is that necessary? Why would you have someone waste money on crappy cake mix instead of taking a minute to ****ing sift together three ingredients?! MERDE!!!
