* In ''Manga/NewGame'', Aoba is asked by her new boss about her progress on an assignment. Aoba admits that she's behind schedule and asks for a two day extension, which her boss grants immediately. Aoba is forced to admit that she can actually get it done a single day; she'd padded her estimate because this trope was always in effect under her old boss.

* This is standard operating practice when critical infrastructure is damaged, destroyed or otherwise disabled. These types of failures are highly disruptive so the affected users are not only sensitive to further delays, but will also be looking to change all manner of future plans. Providing worst case time estimates not only forestalls the possibility of additional anger and disruption, but also makes the companies or governments involved look like proverbial miracle workers.

** "The Die Is Cast" plays with this trope a bit. After the ''Defiant'''s cloaking device is sabotaged, O'Brien says it will take ten hours to fix and Sisko gives him two. While O'Brien does end up fixing it in well under ten hours, it's also explicitly stated at one point that he's been at it for three hours, well over the time limit given to him by Sisko.

** Averted in "The Ensigns of Command". Picard orders Geordi, Wesley and O'Brien to come up with a way to get the transporters to break through a heavy radiation field to evacuate an entire colony before the Sheliak arrive to blow them up (it's the alien's world and the colonists aren't supposed to be down there. No one knew for over a hundred years because of said radiation). At the end of the episode, Geordi finally admits it would take fifteen years and a complete redesign of the transporter system to do so, but by that time Picard decided to TakeAThirdOption and solve the problem already.
