People who just can't follow directions. They add more pesticide than water to the spray can, they add too much herbicide, they add something to baby animal formula, they add something to garden fertilizer - you name it. They just can't be trusted to do it the way the manufacturer knows it will work best.

Yeah, I know what you mean! We make margaritas, and I still measure them out (they are awesome, if I say so myself)! I have a couple friends and relatives that laugh at me for that, and then they try to "show me how it's done" by just dumping in stuff randomly, and it usually tastes awful - even though they pretend it is the best thing they ever had!!

Maybe that's the difference between drinking to get drunk, and actually appreciating the taste for something!

I do like to "tweak" recipes though - but that's okay, isn't it?!?!?!
