* Vernon Dursley in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' appears to be something in middle management rather than a mere drone, and probably [[BadBoss not a very good one]], but [[Administrivia/TropesAreFlexible close enough]]; the line between the two sometimes gets a bit blurry anyway.

* Wheatley ''[[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} Portal 2]]'' already was this, albeit in AI form, but ''FanFic/BlueSky'' took it to the next level and got him to look the part, too.

As office machinery such as the typewriter, adding machine, mimeograph etc. became available starting in the latter half of the Nineteenth Century, clerical workers began shifting their skill sets from the {{Clerk}} to the modern White Collar Worker. In particular, many women joined the workforce, though they tended to be stuck in the lower-ranked and lower-paying "pink collar" office jobs. (This last has improved over the decades.)

* Similarly, the video to "Zombie Autopilot" by Music/{{Unearth}} follows such a person through his day, as he slowly [[SanitySlippage comes undone]] while realizing that he's basically a white collar zombie. The video eventually climaxes with him throwing a file folder at his boss (whom he briefly sees as a demon) and quitting his job...before [[AllJustADream waking up on the subway]] and dismissing the nightmare he's just had.

* The protagonist of Literature/TheLaundrySeries, as lampshaded on the (original) cover of ''The Atrocity Archives''. Bob Howard volunteers for dangerous active service work [[AFateWorseThanDeath just to escape it]]. As his cover job is in IT service, he still has to put in his hours though.
