* In the 2006 ''Film/ThePinkPanther'' film, Clouseau is questioning a wealthy casino owner named Raymond Laroque in his home. He asks to look at Laroque's vases and accidentally gets his hands stuck in them. Just before leaving, he asks Laroque if they're real. Laroque tells him they're worthless fakes. Satisfied, Clouseau tries to smash them on a table, breaking the table. As he leaves, a horrified Laroque mumbles that the desk was priceless.

* Related to the above, there used to be a longstanding policy among continental European hotels and lodgings to not rent to English football fans due to (somewhat justified) fears of hooliganism.

* Sometimes, because of a few ''bakas'' who feel that it's OK to trash hotel rooms, pee in the hallway, write graffiti, harass other congoers, harass people who are at the hotel for other reasons, throw loud parties, etc., hotels will refuse to host {{Fan Convention}}s. Or else they'll jack up the cost of the rooms, which in turn causes the price of con tickets to go up. So, please. Be considerate when you go to a con.

3) '''The perpetrator is either ignorant of the outcome or innocent, instead thinking they are doing what they consider to be the right thing. This largely depends on perspective, as you'll see in the example -- because what is considered fun or nice to one person, may not be felt the same way by another. In fact, this disruption might be a godsend.'''

* This is included in the 12th chapter of ''FanFic/TheVow'' to the conversation between [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen and Zhan the Wolf Boss]] about the BarBrawl the latter took part in with his troops while visiting the Shēnghuó Province:
-->'''Shen''': ...I did ''not'' teach you to disregard the rules of hospitality! I thought I employed better then tavern-brawling thugs!
-->'''Zhan''': Damned cats wanted to pick a fight, sir. One of ours had a bit too much to drink - a young whelp, Azure. They thought they'd beat up one of my men, [[FatherToHisMen I wasn't havin' it]]. Stinking cats want to [[CatchPhrase mess with the wolf, they'll get the fangs]]!
-->'''Shen''': So you had your whole guard trash the tavern?
-->'''Zhan''': Not my problem if the stupid cats wanted to plant their faces in the walls... repeatedly.
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Shen]]''': And ''this'' is why you can't have nice things!

** The exact phrase was used as a running joke in ''WesternAnimation/FriskyDingo''. When the line cropped up again in ''{{Archer}}'', a show with the same creators and writers, it may have been a cross-over gag. Not that it wasn't still funny.

* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Earl and Randy had discovered that if a certain golfer at a local country club golf course got a hole-in-one, he'd buy everyone at the 19th hole beer. So that they would get more beer (and eventually lunch), they disguised themselves as golfers, and made it seem like he'd gotten holes-in-one every time. The fun was over soon enough, as Randy bragged about their exploits to all the lowlifes at the Crab Shack, who decided to do the same thing, and the country club responded by checking IDs at the door against their guest list.
