* In the first chapter of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'', Dumbledore spends the day traveling through parties on his way to Privet Drive while [=McGonagall=] spends the day sitting on the Dursleys' front yard in cat form. This canonically happens on the first of November. So the Headmaster and Deputy Headmistress, the latter of whom actually teaches a class and is therefore actually important, are absent for an entire day in the middle of the school year. Then again, it's implied that not a whole lot of work was getting done anywhere else in Wizarding Britain on account of a really horrible war coming to an abrupt end.

* On ''WesternAnimation/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.

* ''MrMeaty'': Often the main two employees take long breaks and go around the mall.
* In one episode of ''CuriousGeorge'', George picks up takeout from a new family-owned Asian market/take out place across the street. The ''entire family'' that runs the market help him carry the food home and then are invited to stay for dinner by the man in the yellow hat - they accept.

* A variation happens in ''{{Stoked}}''. Emma has a PottyEmergency, but she can't leave the surfboard exhibit alone. So somebody has to watch the show. When [[CloudCuckooLander Broseph]] agrees, well...HilarityEnsues.

* 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.

This was played relatively realistically, as Toby (the boss) often got annoyed at his employees running off and eventually got tired of them all dashing off at a momentís notice brought someone else on to pick up the slack, and hired extra help.a music store doesn't need a large staff in the first place. 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.

** 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.]]
