I totally enjoyed your rant.
It absolutely drives me mad that in this house there is always extraneous matter in every jar of mayo, mustard, pb, jam you name it. Going on ten
years now with the in-laws living with us, who will never learn that this is so gross and can even spoil products faster. I try to hide a jar of
something, so they have theirs and I have mine, but they always wind up contaminating that too. My father-in-law actually licks utensils and puts them
back in jars, serving dishes, etc. Gross! No matter what I say, I can't make a dent in this behaviour.
BTW, no one here likes the squeeze mayo, it's runnier and less tasty.
Another thing that drives me totally crazy - they often won't look for the open jar, they will just get a new one. After bringing this up with them
several times, now when they realize they've done this, they will put one of the open jars back in the cabinet, for me to find spoiled when I look
for a jar that hasn't been grossified in the fridge already. And I hate to waste stuff, so it drives me doubly crazy.
Don't know how old your culprit is, but our seniors are worse than teens. Teens may not clean up after themselves, but at least they don't put dirty
dishes and utensils back in with the clean ones! Same goes for q-tips, ugh.
