The one country that Wilson ''couldn't'' convince to join the League? His own. Isolationist sentiment in the United States was far-reaching after World War I, and many influential lawmakers in the country (most notable Henry Cabot Lodge) were cagey enough about foreign entanglements to stop the United States from becoming a member nation. If their ever was a chance for the United States to join the League, Wilson unintentionally threw it away by not bringing any major players from the Republican Party to the Peace Conference (in particular, Henry Cabot Lodge, the Senate Majority Leader, had expected a seat on the delegation and had few policy quarrels with the Versailles settlement; his disputes with Wilson were largely personal). Thus, Wilson never got to join the organization that he helped build.

* UsefulNotes/WoodrowWilson's political career is a famous example. As President of the United States, Wilson was almost singlehandedly responsible for the founding of the League of Nations--an international peacekeeping alliance of unprecedented scope and ambition, which rewrote the rules of international diplomacy forever and paved the way for the eventual creation of the United Nations. At the time, the creation of the League of Nations was one of the greatest feats of diplomacy in human history, and it required convincing more than 50 different countries to trust each other enough to sit at the negotiating table together after UsefulNotes/WorldWarI had split the world in two.

The same justification can be used for doctors (their emotional attachment can blind them to what's wrong with themselves or those they love, or make them unable to use a risky treatment), so many hospitals have policies that forbid doctors to practice on family members (the exception is when they're the only specialist available, e.g. a venom specialist whose family member just got bitten by a snake). For lawyers, it's not verboten, as it is a legal option, but custom and best practices advise against both self-representation (as in the expression, "A man who represents himself in court has AFoolForAClient") and representing family (by the same principle), except in emergency situations (typically the situation where you call up [[Film/MyCousinVinny your cousin]] and say, "Hi, Vince, I know you're a personal-injury plaintiffs' lawyer, but I've been arrested in Jersey and need to convince the judge I'm not a flight risk. Can you make it from Long Island to help me out? I promise I'll come to your sister's wedding in June").[[note]]Note that it is ''very'' strongly discouraged for lawyers to represent those with whom they have had a sexual relationship, and outright forbidden if the sexual relationship began after the attorney-client one.[[/note]]

* Another well-known logic problem; A father and his son are in a car accident. The father is declared dead on the scene, while the son is brought by ambulance to the hospital, where the surgeon on duty says, "I can't operate on him, he's my son!" (Naturally, the answer is pretty well known now, women doctors are more common when it was first posed, but indeed, giving treatment to your own son is professional favoritism.)
* According to some urban legends, many doctors are themselves smokers.
** Statistically, doctors are more likely to drink habitually, be depressed and suicidal than the general populace. All of these eventually lead to medical intervention of one stripe or another (unless the suicidal succeed).
** And, of course, to ''become'' doctors they need to get through medical school and residency, which typically entail chronic sleep deprivation, intermittent hasty meals, and high-stress overwork for years on end. It's a wonder that most doctors ''don't'' end up being [[DrJerk total assholes]].

* In ''Franchise/OnePiece'' Monkey D. Garp is a legendary marine. While there is no doubt he tried to turn his descendants to that path, ultimately [[spoiler:his son became a revolutionary and the world's most wanted criminal]], and his grandsons became powerful pirates, one a commander for the Whitebeard Pirates and the other a rookie with enormous potential and one of the likely candidates to become the Pirate King. And really, it's his own damn fault: Garp's status as a high-ranking marine made it so that he was rarely home, and when he was he subjected them to TrainingFromHell to make them strong marines. When they still reaffirmed their dreams to be pirates, he left them with a friend to turn that around. Said friend was a '''''mountain bandit'''''. [spoiler: Only the death of his adopted grandson does Garp realize his own errors.]]
