* In a {{flashback}} episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Homer, upon quitting his nuclear plant job, plays Burns' head like a bongo in front of all the other employees, and then throws Burns at a barrel of toxic waste. (Although [[PayEvilUntoEvil one has to wonder if "acting like a jerk" can even apply to anything being done to Burns]].) [[LiteralMetaphor He LITERALLY burns a bridge he drives over on his way out.]] He eventually has to take the job back after [[spoiler:impregnating Marge with Maggie]]. Of course, since this is [[EvilIsPetty Burns]] we're talking about here, he makes Homer crawl through a narrow tunnel to get the job, so that Burns would literally be looking down on Homer once Homer emerged, and put a big plaque in Homer's office saying "Don't forget, you're here forever". Almost literally adding insult to injury. [[spoiler:Luckily, Homer is able to cover the plaque [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments with pictures of Maggie and change the message to "Do it for her".]]]]

* In the ''MyLittlePony''/''Franchise/BioShock'' fanfic ''{{Fanfic/Vision}}'', our AntiHero, Siren, due to a mix of TraumaCongaLine, FishOutOfWater, and just not being all that nice to begin with, says some rather hurtful things to another character who was just being nice to her. As she walks away, she has a small MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment, but doesn't go back to apologize. Guess who she ends up at the mercy of later?
