* ''{{Film/Glory}}'': This is the case for many of the black enlistees to the 54th MA Volunteer Infantry, and the {{Jerkass}} quartermaster thinks it's funny to claim that his armory has no shoes to spare when he's clearly living off the fat of his riches. Worse, a few that do have shoes, like Silas, haven't washed them out in ages and [[{{Squick}} thus have gained nasty infections and blisters]]. Naturally, the whole regiment celebrates once fresh and new shoes are finally provided for the volunteers.

* ''Anime/PrincessSarah'': In Episode 23, Sarah bought five loaves of bread and gave all but one to a girl who's even poorer and hungrier than she is. The other girl's lack of shows is one of the clues to her level of poverty.
