A lot of people pile on the ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper and tabasco without even tasting the food first to see if it actually needs extra seasoning. I used to do it too until a friend pointed out that it was actually an insult to the chef. After that, I started tasting the food first and found that I cut my condiment use by about half. That said, my friends call me the queen of condiments because my fridge is packed with them. But I've never liked ketchup, even when I was kid my tastes ran to spicier fare.
