* The creators of ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' made the main characters bar owners so that they could believably get into hijinks during the day. Even still, the trope is lampshaded in one episode where a newspaper reviewer writes that patrons of Paddy's Pub must often serve themselves because the owners are too busy arguing with each other to actually tend bar.

** ''PowerRangersMysticForce'' had the economic impossibility of all five rangers working at the same small music shop, and always at the same time. Toby (the boss) eventually got tired of them all dashing off at a momentís notice and hired extra help. Of course, he became a lot more understanding after learning that they were all Power Rangers.

Of course, he became a lot more understanding after learning that they were all Power Rangers.



** ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' averts this - not only are several other cooks and waiters shown to be working at the Dino Bite Cafe, but most episodes have only one or two rangers investigating the MonsterOfTheWeek initially - the others often wait until they're called for backup.

And like with ''Jungle Fury'', the Rangers' boss Kendall understands the situation since she's also in on their secret as TheMentor - in fact, she specifically ''gave'' the Rangers jobs in the museum so they could use museum business as a cover for Ranger business.

* In the ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' episode "Hunting Trip", most of the cast goes on said on trip, leaving only April (an intern at this point in the series) in the Parks Department. While they're gone, April is tasked with calling the State Parks Department and reading off a number so their budget will come in. However, the State Parks Department puts her on hold for hours and April has a PottyEmergency with no one to take over in case they answer. She's rescued by Andy, leading to the two of them goofing around in the office for the rest of the episode. This is the first time April and Andy had significant interaction and thus the episode is credited with starting their WillTheyOrWontThey relationship.

* On ''SpongebobSquarepants'' the Krusty Krab is a profitable fast food restaurant, run by a manager who freely admits that he is in it for the money. However often all three employees are shown to be away from work during daylight hours.

** Lampshaded in one episode, where Spongebob convinces himself and Squidward that Mr. Krabbs is a robot. Before they tie him up, he nervously asks them what they're doing, and his last, frenzied question is "Who's running the cash register?!"

** ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury'' had the Rangers work in a pizzeria. They didn't have a problem with the boss as he was TheMentor, but there seemed to be ''no'' background employees; he seemed to run the place by himself before hiring the Rangers and one other girl in the pilot, and once he became a Ranger himself it apparently fell on the girl to keep things running while the Rangers saved the world. This trope eventually came back to bite them in the behind, however, [[spoiler:as it became impossible to keep the girl from finding out their secret after leaving her to handle the pizzeria alone so many times.]]

* In TwoBrokeGirls Max and Caroline seem to be the only two waitresses at the Diner. Made even funnier when they bump into Han, their boss, at the movie theaters. Made even more funny when Han, the cashier Earl, and the cook Oleg, show up at Max and Caroline's cupcake shop at the same time.

* On ''{{Series/Newhart}}'', there were a number of times when everybody who worked at the Stratford Inn were away from the inn, and many times when Minuteman Cafe owners Kirk or Larry, Darryl, and Darryl were away from the cafe, with no additional staff. Subverted a bit in that before Larry, Darryl, and Darryl bought the cafe Kirk had them look after the cafe on two occasions.
