* Creator/BruceCoville's ''Literature/TheGhostLetGo'' has a young woman whose last words to her mother where "I HATE YOU!", before [[spoiler:the mother and the girl's boyfriend (the cause of the argument) were killed in a car crash, while the girl was horribly disfigured.]] The regret at those words, and the fact that ghosts can't communicate with the living (except the protagonists), is what is causing them to stay, hence the title.

* Many Creator/{{Nintendo}} fans suffered this and a case of MyGodWhatHaveIDone after Creator/SatoruIwata passed away on July 11, 2015. Their last communication with him was anger and disappointment towards Nintendo's E3 2015 presentation, which included the divisive ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeFederationForce''. Iwata apologized and promised next year would be better. He never got the chance to do it and many fans are now upset that this was the last thing they said to him before he died.

* A variation of this happens in the Main/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents second book the Reptile Room when the night before Dr. Montgomery's murder the Baudelaires are too preoccupied trying to guess Count Olaf's plan to tell him anything after the movie. The following morning when they see his corpse, Violet feels guilty for never getting to say thank you for the movie and tries to remember if at least they said it earlier.
