* Gamers have long since said that Creator/{{Nintendo}} needs to "get with the times". However, the Nintendo Switch has had Nintendo announce online gameplay... that is paid. (Which is what Creator/{{Sony}} and Creator/{{Microsoft}} did), then they were upfront in announcing season pack and DLC for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'''s remake. All of which are practices that other game studios have done for awhile. Sure enough, cue people complaining then responding with "Hey you wanted them to get with the times. You got what you wanted!"

* [=YouTuber=] Shawn Woods posted [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SIlYiiCGLI a video]] showcasing a very effective mousetrap that catches and drowns mice in a bucket. After many outraged comments about how cruel and inhumane it was to add water and drown those cute widdle huggy-wuggy mice, he posted [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNWJIkjOupg&t=0s another video]] showing what happened when he did as they requested and left the bucket empty. Suffice to say, [[NatureIsNotNice the mice didn't throw a tea party together down there]]; [[{{Squick}} click that second link at your own risk]].

Compare GoneHorriblyRight, when science or logic is involved rather than wishes, and WantingIsBetterThanHaving, when getting your wish ends with more disappointment than satisfaction.

satisfaction, and TemptingFate, which does not specifically require a wish.

** [[http://garfield.com/comic/1978-08-06 In a very early strip]], Garfield is shown hanging onto the screen door simply because he's bored complaining of his boredom. He wishes for something to happen. A very '''mundane''' yet apparently painful aftermath occurs when Jon announces lunchtime.

* The ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fanfic ''Gaz Dreams of Genie'', Gaz gets hit with this after accidentally freeing the genie Azie from her lamp and being granted ThreeWishes in exchange. She wastes her first wish with a FreudianSlip (expressing her annoyance with Dib by saying she sometimes wishes he'd never been born), leading to a VillainWorld where Zim rules and she's a slave; she then has to use her second wish to hit the ResetButton. Left with only one wish, and specifically being told she can't wish for more, Gaz spends time contemplating every wish she can think of, and realizes that every single one could theoretically backfire on her. [[spoiler: She tries to employ some LoopholeAbuse by wishing for the power to grant her own wishes (thus allowing her to tailor things her way), but this just leads to [[BecomingTheGenie her and Azie switching lives, leaving Gaz trapped in the lamp]].]]

* During the UsefulNotes/ArabSpring many people demanded the fall of their dictatorial governments. In 2017 many countries have gotten exactly that, only to learn all potential meanings of the old Arab saying "One night of anarchy is worse than a hundred years of tyranny". Just ask UsefulNotes/Lybia how they feel about Qaddafi now...

Given that Israel has been at peace with Jordan since 1994 (and the ceasefire predating that peace was one of the more stable ones) and with Egypt since the 1970s, some Israelis think it would be easier to give back the territory held by those two countries prior to the 1967 war - but they won't take it. Jordan has renounced all claims to land west of the Jordan in 1988 and Egypt explicitly only asked for Sinai back in its peace negotiations with Israel and has repeatedly shut the border of the Gaza Strip airtight.
