* From ''Literature/TheBible'': when God told King David to go to the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite in 2nd Samuel chapter 24 to build an altar to the Lord, Araunah was willing to give the threshing floor and the oxen and the wood free of charge to the king, but King David insists on buying the property, saying that he would not make sacrifices to the Lord with offerings that cost him nothing.

* BritishCoppers are strictly forbidden from accepting free or even discounted goods or services on account of their position. In fact, until quite recently it was technically against the rules for them to spend money at all while on duty, but this was seldom enforced.

* Steve Carella (and, by extension, every honest cop) in the ''Literature/EightySeventhPrecinct'' novels. In one novel, he is offered theatre tickets to a hit musical and notes that as a cop you can either accept nothing that is offered to you, or everything: there is no middle ground. (He does take the tickets, but pays market price for them after first establishing that these are reserve tickets that would have been on sale to the general public before the show, so there can be no question of him being down special favours.)
* In a character-defining moment for both Thanos and Anat in the ''Literature/ShatteredTwilight'' story ''The Farmer's Wife'', Thanos leads the other priests out of an inn without paying for their stay for the night or for the food they ate, but Anat sneaks a few coins onto the table - out of Thanos' sight - before he leaves.

* On ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', Jerry's parents flat-out refuse to believe that he makes anything remotely resembling a decent amount of money as a comedian. This leads to huge arguments between Jerry and his father Morty whenever they are together, as ''both'' of them insist on paying for everything: Morty because he thinks Jerry is perpetually broke, and Jerry because he wants to prove to his parents that he is far from it.
