* Hilariously inverted in ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'', when the entire class has to stay inside due to a rainstorm. [[{{Nerd}} Gretchen]] gets so bored she decides to do tonight's homework right then and there...as well as all the homework for the ''next 7 years of her education''.

* The cardinals electing ThePope used to be this. The record goes to the election of Gregorius X, that took ''almost three years'' (1006 days to be exact. Partially {{Justified}} by the fierce political divisions between pro-French and pro-Empire cardinals ''and'' the first two compromise candidates refusing by means of [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere running away from the city]], but even then the cardinals did not meet every day), and would have taken more time had the people of Viterbo (the place where the cardinals had congregated) not decided that enough was enough and locked them in the Palazzo dei Papi ("Palace of the Popes"), denied them food other than bread and water and ''removed the roof'' and half the kings of Europe not started making pressures and threats so they would just hurry up. That election will ''always'' hold the record because [[GenreSavvy Gregorius X put into law the means the people of Viterbo used to hurry up the cardinals]].

** Another comic had Archie continuously putting off writing a paper due the next day, on any topic of his choosing. After putting off the paper for pointless distractions like putting up pictures of Betty and Veronica, playing with his old train in the attic, going for snacks, etc. he wakes up the next morning and writes a paper about the ways teenagers put off doing their homework.

* In the Literature/HouseOfNight series, Zoey and her friends pull this off to a ridiculous extent. They'll plan pretty early on what they ''want'' to do, but will be so distracted by going to the movies or flirting with cute boys or whatever else that they won't actually ''do'' it until the book's almost over. In several cases, upon being presented with clear evidence that something's out of the ordinary, Zoey flat-out states that it's too freaky/stressful and she'll put it out of mind. This is especially bad in ''Chosen'', where Zoey spends the entire book agonizing over how to [[spoiler:heal the undead Stevie Rae]], only for Aphrodite to come up with an answer in one sentence in the last few chapters: [[spoiler:use a variant of a basic healing ritual that any vampire knows about.]] And it ''works''.

** Part of the reason for this is given as him waiting until he's absolutely certain that Claudius is guilty (reasonable enough, although that doesn't really explain why he needs to also fake insanity) and then refusing to kill Claudius at prayer after said guilt is established (as that would mean Claudius would go to heaven). On the other hand, it does take Hamlet a ridiculously long time to actually set up his plan to figure out if Claudius did, in fact, kill his father.

* Creator/AkiraToriyama admits to and was hated by his editors for this when writing ''Manga/DragonBall'' procrastinating all of his work for the week by watching TV or making models until the last two days when he'd suddenly realize he had to draw and ink that week's issue and write the next storyboard. Oddly enough other mangakas saw him as a prodigy for being able to do a week's worth of work in a day or two and with the end result being so damn good to boot.
