Vegemite etiquette

I fancied a muffin with butter and Vegemite for breakfast this morning, just for a change. I unscrewed the lid of the jar and discovered this:

Apparently, my children need lessons in how to use a jar of Vegemite.

1. Dip your knife into the lovely black goo and take just a little bit.
2. Spread on your toast.
3. If the Vegemite isn't thick enough, repeat steps 1 & 2.

That's it. Nowhere do these instructions say: Stick your knife in and take a HUGE glob, spread half of it on your toast and then return the buttery, crumb-filled mess to the inside of the jar, thus causing the next user of the salty spread to gag.

Are you paying attention, family?

Coffee Machine etiquette. If the water tank needs filling or the dregdraw needs emptying, do not just decide to postpone your morning espresso knowing that the next person to encounter the machine will sort the problem for you.

That's just wrong (and awfully familiar!)

Breadcrumbs and vegemite left in the margarine tub is equally disgusting.

some mofo did this to my vegemite at work, except they managed to empty the whole container and ONLY leave the manky edge bits. soo not excited.
