* Steve Carella (and, by extension, every honest cop) in the ''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.)

She ends up being fired over it, since the owners of the restaurant wrongly interpreted it as a bribe (Monica had been recently promoted to a job which included selecting the meat supplier).

* Humorous subversion from ''{{Persona 3}}'': In one of the Social Link scenes for [[{{Ojou}} Mitsuru Kirijo]], she offers to pay for lunch... and is then flustered when she discovers the food stand from which you are buying doesn't accept credit cards, meaning you have to pay anyway.

* 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.
** This reaches its climax when Jerry buys Morty a Cadillac for his birthday. His parents sell it to Jack Klompus (for probably less than Jerry paid for it) and give him the money. Jerry responds by buying it ''back'' from Klompus ''at blue book value'' and giving it back to his parents. His parents respond by selling their ''house'' and moving into a trailer. For a bit of irony, the lengths Jerry went to in order to prove that he wasn't broke left him actually broke, and he had to sleep in the Cadillac for a night.

* Subverted with Edgar in ''FinalFantasyVI''. If you put him at the head of the party and then visit a shop in Figaro, the merchants will say that they don't feel they should charge the King money if he needs something. Edgar will insist on paying anyway, but they will give him a half-price discount.

* 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.
