* ''ComicBook/RedEars'': Various strips feature scenarios where housewives cheat with the milkman, the mailman, etc. Possibly the [[ExaggeratedTrope most over-the-top one]] was where a husband who just departed for work started fearing this outcome when he saw the plumber pull up. He drives back home and finds out that there's a ''line'' in front of his house.

* In fact, replace "milkman" with practically any blue-collar job that might plausibly send a strapping young man into the homes of bored suburban housewives and you have the main plot of at least one AwfulBritishSexComedy.

Although there were some TruthInTelevision incidents of this, it is less based on them than it is the general fear of a person's spouse cheating on them while they're away at work, especially if it's with someone who comes straight to the door. As few milkmen are still working, it is more common nowadays for the wife to cheat with a deliveryman (the mailman, UPS, Fedex, etc.), some kind of repairman (plumber, electrician, cable guy, etc.), or some other service provider that has to regularly be physically present in the house, such as a pool-cleaner. One that dates from an earlier period is the iceman (the person who delivered ice door-to-door, mostly for use in old-fashioned [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icebox iceboxes]]).

* A man and his wife are in the hospital, the wife is due to give birth. The doctor offers a new technology which transfers pain to the baby's father instead of the mother. The husband is willing to do anything to help, so he is set up with the device. They set it to 50%, and the wife feels only half the pain -- the husband said he felt nothing. They set it to 75%, and the wife feels only a quarter of the pain -- the husband again feels nothing. finally they set it for 100% -- the wife has a completely pain-free delivery of a healthy child, and the husband never felt a thing. The wife is in such good condition from this that she needs no recovery and they are sent home that same day with their newborn... only to find the mailman dead on the front porch.
