* The premise of the Finnish film ''Film/AMansJob (Miehen työ) ''. The main character loses his job as a construction worker and doesn't dare to tell it to his depressed wife. He becomes a sex worker. Hilarity does not ensue.

* Creator/AshtonKutcher's character in ''Film/GuessWho'' quits his job as a successful broker and insults his boss ([[spoiler:a racist who insulted the protagonist's black fiancée]]) but doesn't want to tell his fiancée as they're going to meet her parents. Unfortunately, his pissed off boss spreads false rumors about him, which means he can't get employment (apparently, no employer fact-checks). Unusually, by the end of the film, he still doesn't have a job, but his future father-in-law accepts him after learning ''why'' he quit.

* In ''Film/SoulFood'', youngest sister Bird's husband Lem loses his job when his employer finds out about his criminal history. He tries to find another job before she finds out, but she does anyway. Then the trope is inverted in that she asks her ex-boyfriend to give him a job, but not to let him know. Of course, the boyfriend being a {{Jerkass}}, he tells him anyway.

** Another episode has a different variation. After Homer accidently loses all their money investing in pumpkins but stupidly hanging on to the stocks well after Halloween, he cant bring himself to tell Marge and in desperation ends up getting a loan from his hated sister-in-laws, who uses the loan to extort Homer into letting them abuse and humiliate him in return for keeping quiet.

* A variation with Mark Hacking who had his entire family and in-laws convinced that was attending college and had been accepted into medical school. In reality, he had flunked out of college and was carrying out a charade so as not to disappoint everyone. His wife discovered his deception when she called the medical school where he had supposedly been accepted and inquired about housing, only to learn he had never even applied. He murdered her (and consequently, their unborn child) when she confronted him.

* Old Nick from ''Literature/{{Room}}'', in the early part of the story. When he finally admits it six months in, it motivates the woman he's been keeping prisoner for years as a SexSlave to try to escape, by fear that he may use a radical method to cut costs.
