Question General question about brake pad wear

I checked my brothers brake pads on his '90 CRX Si and on the inside of the front right rotor, the pad is shot. Its now metal to metal contact and there are deep grooves on the inside. Granted its his fault for not saying anything until now, he isn't driving it cause I told him not to btw, but what would cause excessive wear like that under normal driving conditions?

Excessive? How long have the pads been on the car?

"Excessive" depends on the driver, the type of pads, the type of car and how long the pads have been on the car.

I wore my original WRX pads down to bare metal in 12k miles, but that included a couple of days at Summit Point.

I replaced them just as summer started. And by Excessive wear I mean deep grooves.
