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.

Hmm. I never thought about it that way. I always assumed that the packets were so small that they had no actual volume. Perhaps I need to start watching it.

Not to pile on, but that's almost 1,100 mg of sodium and 21 grams of sugar in ketchup alone...

Just train your palate to enjoy 0.43 packets per fry, and you'll be fine.

No way dude. Go for it!

16 packets of ketchup is only equal to about .6 cups of ketchup. You could eat another 10 packets and still feel confident that you haven't eaten a cup of ketchup.

She should definitely feel bad about eating a lot of ketchup. That's because she's morbidly obese though. I've never met Rainman before, but he's talked about liking to run and stuff.. So I'm guessing that he's somewhat into health/fitness, and doesn't eat a grip of ketchup everyday.
