* ''Literature/CHERUBSeries'' - Performing menial (though always necessary) cleaning jobs on [[SpySchool Campus]] is among the most common way of punishing [[TeenSuperSpy CHERUB agents]] for misconduct.

* ''Literature/CHERUBSeries'' - Performing menial (though always necessary) cleaning jobs on [[SpySchool Campus]] is among the most common way of punishing [[TeenSuperSpy CHERUB agents]] for misconduct. An exaggerated example gets thrown at Lauren for knocking out an instructor with a spade, she has to clean out a huge ditch ''by herself''. After a few days of it most of the other [=CHERUBs=] on campus at the time help her finish it, and the director lets it slide at it's felt she's suffered enough.

** However, in some cases these tasks will go to the NewMeat instead of people on Punishment Detail.
** KP, or Kitchen Patrol, is a common form of military punishment in media (classically taking the form of PeelingPotatoes). In Real Life, it's not nearly as common as it once was.
*** Hilariously enough, the Russian Army has always considered KP a reward rather than a punishment. Sure, PeelingPotatoes is boring and monotonous, but so is, say, tank tread maintenance. KP is far less physically demanding, is done in a nice warm kitchen rather than a snowdrift somewhere and gives you ample opportunity to beg or steal a wide variety of edible goodies.
