Added DiffLines:

* Gus Fring from ''Series/BreakingBad'' is introduced this way. After Saul sets things up, Walt and Jesse go to a Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant where a potential distributor is going to meet with them to buy 38 pounds of meth from them. They sit around for a while, but their man never shows. Walt learns from Saul that their man ''was'' there, watching them, and is no longer interested. So Walt goes back to the restaurant and waits around most of the day and evening. Walt eventually puts two and two together that the friendly manager at the restaurant is the distributor and approaches Gus.

* Happens in an episode of ''CurbYourEnthusiasm''. Larry was driving, and sees a black man in a suit standing on the curb. Larry assumes he's a valet and tries to hand him his keys, which obviously offends him. Larry's horrified at his mistake and tries to apologize, but the man tells him off and walks away. And Wanda Sykes happened to see the whole thing.

* In a ''MurphyBrown'' episode, Murphy starts dating a [[MayDecemberRomance much younger man]]. When he shows up at FYI with flowers, the rest of the team mistakes him for a delivery man sent by Murphy's "new boyfriend" (Jim even tips him) and keep chatting away with speculation as to what said boyfriend is like. By the time Murphy arrives to introduce him, Corky is already whispering to Frank "Why is the delivery boy still here?"

* This gets complicated in ''DieFledermaus'', when von Eisenstien is astonished by how much an opera star he's introduced to at a party looks like his maid. Naturally, he's made a huge fool of himself. This being a farce, he soon establishes that it really is his maid, being a PrincessForADay... and as he's there under a false identity, he can't do anything about it.
