* In [[Literature/HonorHarrington Mission Of Honor]], when Admiral Crandall arrives in Spindle, she waits for a while before opening communications, intending to make the Manticorans sweat.

It's a wonder that Crandall doesn't suffer an apoplectic fit.
** And, since she'd decided to insult the Manties by parking her ships far enough out that it takes eighteen minutes for a message to get to Spindle and back, he returns the insult by resuming reading his book between exchanges.

** In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', Vetinari has a conversation with Moist von Lipwig while calmly eating a hard-boiled egg. The attention Vetinari pays to eating the egg only serves to annoy and confuse Moist, since he's already freaked out. (It didn't help that Vetinari mentions that [[AutopsySnackTime a hanging always makes him hungry.]])
