** In ''Series/HellsKitchen,'' repeatedly, when a chef kept messing up souffles told Gordon that he was going to try brushing sugar and cocoa powder around the rims of the ramekins to keep them from sticking. For non-chefs among readers, this is one of the '''first''' things you should do when making a souffle. The next scene has him complaining that he's got a [[ClusterFBomb fucking]] headache.

* Popular Website/YouTube vloggers Music/{{Hank|Green}} and Creator/JohnGreen (known collaboratively by their channel name of WebVideo/VlogBrothers) sometimes do this in their videos to express dismay at the idiocy of the average internet user (see various You Fail ____Forever tropes) or other frustrations. Especially John has been known to do this from time to time. "Huaaaa--hh HEADDESK!" (after which he had a bruise, and had to end the video). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VCY4dup3-M In one video]] John performed a *headdesk* to the extent that he wondered (possibly jokingly) if he'd given himself a concussion and pretended to have memory loss through the remainder of the video.

* Millions of workers when faced with idiotic management. Also not uncommon among call center workers (especially in tech support) when faced with callers who have apparently been brain donors. Many tech support places have what's known as "idiot checks", questions to make sure simple things like ''"Is the computer on in the first place?"'' get done. These, sadly, solve a fair amount of the customers' "problems".
