* Keisha refers to this in ''[[HeraldsOfValdemar Owlsight]]'', when she thinks back to when the village women cleaned up Justyn's old cottage. She concedes that he kept the treatment areas clean, but the living areas .... Later, when she first sees Darian's home in the new Vale, she can't believe at first that a single male lives there because it's so clean. (Darian does not score any aversion points, since the ''hertasi'' clean the place for him.)

** The tea urn thing is probably one of those specifically British tropes which are not understood elsewhere. There are two schools of thought on such matters: one holds that teapots should be washed and kept clean in the same way as any other utensil, the other holds that teapots should never, ever, under any circumstances, be cleaned out, because the years-old internal encrustation of tea deposits improves the flavour of the tea. This is SeriousBusiness in Britain because it is about tea. Sam Vimes is clearly of the latter school, while Sybil is of the former, which is what would be expected from their class origins.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''WebComic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings''. Commander Badass, time-travelling SuperSoldier and divorced father-of-two is something of a domestic god, and his current girlfriend Jonesy is an abject slob to the point that the Commander refuses to visit her apartment.

* The episode "About Face" of {{Duckman}} has Bernice leaving Duckman in charge of the house while she has a night out with her friends, telling him to cook the kids a healthy dinner instead of just ordering pizza. Cut to Duckman having done exactly that, then passed out in front of the TV with the house now a filthy mess. Keep in mind that the period of time this happened in couldnt have been more than a few hours.

* DaveBarry mentions sharing an apartment with a fellow young male. It lacked furniture, but this allowed them to play Indoor Ricochet Death Frisbee. Another one is when a reader tells him he has boxed up a ton of old junk and arranged the boxes into ugly brown furniture. His girlfriend fails to see the simple genius of this arrangement, obvious to any male.

** Also true with Michael when his family left him temporarily. His house will be scattered with pizza boxes since he presumably dismissed his maid.

Added DiffLines:

* Played straight in ''Manga/{{Kochikame}}'' with Ryotsu's apartment in being horribly untidy.


Added DiffLines:

* Trevor's trailer safehouse in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' is extremely untidy. It progresses through various stages as the game progresses, but following the kidnapping of Patricia, she spends her time tidying up the trailer, but is reverted to its normal state after her release. Floyd's apartment becomes this when Trevor temporarily moves in.

* ''TazMania'': "Boys Just Want Wanna Have Fun" is about what happens when Jean and Molly go away, leaving Hugh and the boys in charge of the house. The results are predictible.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted by Creator/WillieRushton, who wrote a book called ''Superpig'' that manages to be both funny and informatively useful at the same time. ''Superpig'' is a manual for how a single man, single by either inclination or circumstance, can live his life without reverting to a porcine or caveman state. The book teaches about domestic skills such as cleaning, cooking, and keeping house for the average man, so that any women in his life might be both surprised and pleasantly pleased.

** Played straight with his best friend Motoki, who admits to never cleaning his place. Luckily, Makoto is highly skilled at speed-cleaning.
