* In "Amy's Baking Company" on ''Series/KitchenNightmares'', one of the owners actually uses this when a customer complains about the food. Never mind that "Well, our food at least keeps you from starving" is a peculiarly low bar to clear for a professional eating establishment.

* In the ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' book ''The Joy of Work'', Scott Adams responds to Norman Solomon's book ''The Trouble with Dilbert'' by writing a fictional interview between Solomon and Dogbert. When he has Solomon complain that ''Dilbert'' attacks {{Pointy Haired Boss}}es more than {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s, Dogbert's counterargument is that Solomon clearly supports teen pregnancy because he didn't write a book about that.
** What makes it more absurd is that, [[WordOfGod according to Adams himself in the same book,]] Normon Solomon's ''The Trouble With Dilbert'' only came about because of [[TwistingTheWords Solomon taking one of Adams' quotes about "Good things about downsizing" out of context]] (the original context was that, since he's always hammering on downsizing in his books and comics, if he could think of anything that is good about downsizing.)

* During a HeatWave, you might see a blurb (sometimes on a picture, sometimes as a Website/{{Facebook}} status, what have you) about how "I'm not going to complain about the heat today because soldiers in Iraq/Afghanistan not only experience heat every day, but carry lots of equipment through it and may not even survive the day." [[http://www.hotdogsandguns.com/2012/05/i-was-going-to-complain-about-heat.html Here's a sample.]]
** The inverse applies to a milder extent: Don't complain about how cold it is. Ever. Especially if it's above 0 C. Unless you want to get in a FlameWar with those who live in colder climates.
** Similarly, complaining about the aftermath of a tropical storm/small hurricane or small earthquake will likely get you blasted by people who experienced far worse storms and quakes every year.
