* Pretty much every character in ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' has said or done something after forgetting that Matt is blind. A real estate agent tells him that his partner and him can fight over the office with the better view, Karen holds a newspaper up to him to show an article about how terrible Fisk is, Ulrich shrugs instead of verbally answering. Matt isn't too bothered by it and seems to prefer the odd faux pas to people treating him like he's made of glass.

* In TheFilmOfTheBook of the first novel in the Literature/EarthsChildren series, ''[[http://jabootu.net/?p=556 Clan Of The Cave Bear]]'', lead character Ayla must, within sight of her tribe, save a child from a wolf using her advanced hunting skills, skills which it is not lawful for a woman in her society to have.
** The book has the same situation but with a hyena instead. ''Clan of the Cave Bear'' is practically one long sequence of these, although the results are generally not all that funny.
* ''Film/{{Ladyhawke}}'' - Proud at escaping an inescapable prison, Phillipe offers to buy a drink to everyone in a tavern. Some of them are out looking for him.

* ''Ridicule'' by Patrice Leconte depicts the fearsome consequences of social blunders at the court of Louis XVI. People were DrivenToSuicide for saying the wrong thing at the wrong moment, or at the very least their hopes for advancement at court were ruined.
* Jason around Kelly in ''Film/MysteryTeam''. He explains to the (orphaned) girl that life isn't fair because he didn't get a bike for Christmas, tells her to have fun at her parents' wake, and says her skin feels similar to what a dolphin's must feel like.
** The whole [[TitleDrop Mystery Team]] is like this. For example, their most common suspect is Old Man [=McGinty=], whom they suspect for murder when he is clearly very comatose. They break into his house. Twice.



* ''Film/PacificRim'': When Newt is introducing himself and his work, he shows off his {{kaiju}} tattoos and goes on about how cool kaiju are. In front of Raleigh. Who ''lost his brother to one''.
-->'''Newt''': You know [Yamarashi] was one of the biggest Category [=3s=] ever? It's 2,500 tons of awesome. (''awkward silence from everyone else'') Or awful, you know, whatever you wanna call it.

** The pass is also said to have been formed due to a misstep by a giant.
*** So all these smaller social blunders are the direct result of ''[[IncrediblyLamePun one giant]] [[DontExplainTheJoke faux pas]]''?

* In ''JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth'', the narrator, having broken an ancient explorer's code, shows his uncle how the code is written. Unfortunately, he has his love for his uncle's ward on the brain, and the phrase he codes is that he loves her... Thankfully for everyone, his uncle's response amounts to, "Huh.

* ''{{Orange is the New Black}}'' uses this to drive one of its first story arcs. On Piper's first day in prison, an inmate comes by and gives her a yogurt cup at the mess hall, as a welcome gift. Piper thanks her profusely, adding that she's happy to get the yogurt because "the food here is disgusting." It turns out that the woman who gave her the yogurt is the head cook, one of the most powerful inmates in the prison. And she takes the insult ''very'' personally.
