* Real Life example: Music/TheWhiteStripes made the ''Fell In Love With A Girl'' music video entirely out of Legos and stop-motion. Jack White consulted with the Lego company about having Lego figures of Meg and himself packaged with the release of the single. Lego refused, claiming they wouldn't cater to a market that wasn't children. When the video was a hit, Lego changed their minds, only for Jack to refuse.

This occasionally occurs as an [[AvertedTrope aversion]] of SweetAndSourGrapes. Related to LastSecondChance and HeelFaceDoorSlam, if the villain is offered one more chance to repent and either refuses or accepts too late.

* Music/AvrilLavigne's song "Sk8er Boi" is about a boy who has an unreciprocated crush on a girl. Then he becomes a rock star and she gets a crush on him, but he's no longer interested in her because he's in a relationship with another girl who liked him before he got famous.

* A TV movie adaptation of ''The Lost World'' (by Arthur Conan Doyle) had the hero snubbed by a girl he liked at the beginning of the movie, only to have her try to chat him up after he comes back from the titular country with a pterosaur and lots of fame. He blows her off.

* TheWestWing: After weeks of negotiations, the President and the Speaker of the House cut a deal to avoid a government shutdown by slashing government spending a certain amount. At the final meeting to sign the deal, the Speaker, perceiving President Bartlet to be in a weak position, suddenly demands sharper cuts. Bartlet balks and the government is shut down.

* One early use was in a 1930s {{Popeye}} short "Beware of Barnacle Bill", which has Olive rejecting Popeye's marriage proposal, Popeye beating up Barnacle Bill (the person Olive was in love with), and then rejecting Olive's proposal out of spite.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has fun with it, and gave the trope its original name "Turning The Other Cheek": Buttercup tells Bubbles that they shouldn't be "turning the other cheek" on an offer from a league of superheroes, and that offer has a twist: They're not asking the PPG to join (as the PPG has been trying to do, and were rejected simply for being girls) as Bubbles expected (and she was planning on rejecting the offer of course), ''they're'' asking to join the PPG.

* ''{{Doug}}'': One episode begins with Patty being turned down from the school baseball team for being a girl, ends with Patty turning down school coach's offer to let her join after he saw what she could do (or rather, could have done: Roger's game-winning catch for the school was all that prevented her from driving in Doug as the game-winning run for her team the Pulverizers).

* A GuideDangIt moment in the first ''SpaceQuest'' involved this when selling your hoverbike. If taken, the first offer would leave you without a needed item later in the game. Said item would be offered the second time, but ''never again''.
