'''Instead:''' He blames the town itself for being too boring, steals a reef-blower and vandalizes both Tentacle Acres and their residents. Squidward even shamelessly rationalizes his crimes of burglary, assault, destruction of public and private property, and graffiti to the police officer who seeks to arrest him.

'''What's worse:''' When SpongeBob's friends were around for his parties, they don't see through the disguise either. It's especially egregious when you see Mr. Krabs and Larry there and remember that the Strangler was established to be TheDreaded even to them.\\

* In Night Light, Spongebob develops a fear of the dark, and he get's a night light to help him sleep. This seems smart, until he sees a door open that is very dark on the other side.
'''You'd Expect:''' Spongebob to close the door, plus every other door in his bedroom.

* In "The Secret Box", [=SpongeBob=] has snuck into Patrick's house and taken his secret box, desperate to know the contents. Patrick is sleeping, and [=SpongeBob=], trying not to wake him up, has just been through several near-misses after taking the box from Patrick.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' [=SpongeBob=] to peek in the box, return it, and leave Patrick's rock, all in silence.\\
'''Instead:''' He takes the opportunity to whisper to himself, [[TemptingFate "Gee, Patrick sure is a heavy sleeper."]]\\
'''As a result:''' Patrick wakes up for real.
* In "Sailor Mouth", SpongeBob and Patrick are ordered by Mr. Krabs to suppress themselves from uttering a profanity word that is audible as a dolphin call for the audience. SpongeBob accidentally lets one out when he loses a game of Eels and Escalators to Patrick. Patrick then runs to go rat him out to Mr. Krabs, but he also blurts one out too.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For SpongeBob to blackmail Patrick to not tell Mr. Krabs.\\
'''Instead:''' SpongeBob challenges Patrick to a race to see who can rat out the other to Mr. Krabs first. The two rat each other out in front of Mr. Krabs who decide to force them to paint the Krusty Krab as punishment, but when Krabs stubs his foot onto a rock, he lets out not just the dolphin word, but all other 12 of the 13 profanity words.\\
'''You'd then Expect:''' For SpongeBob and Patrick to force Mr. Krabs to call off the painting punishment in exchange for them not reporting him to his mother.\\
'''Instead:''' The cycle repeats itself, SpongeBob, Patrick '''and''' Mr. Krabs at the end of the episode have to paint Mama Krabs' home.

* In TheMovie, when Squidward confronts Plankton at the Chum Bucket.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Squidward to keep his mouth closed and not reveal to Plankton that he knows his plan. He could then leave the Chum Bucket to notify the authorities.\\
'''Instead:''' ''He explicitly tells Plankton about his plan and says that he will report him,'' thus allowing Plankton to activate the Chum Bucket helmets and have the mind-controlled citizens kidnap him. Lampshaded when Plankton called Squidward "Inspector Loose Lips."

* This trope is in total command of the episode "Wet Painters". First, SpongeBob and Patrick are assigned by Mr Krabs to paint his house with permanent, white paint. Krabs decides to not pay them at all for this labor-demanding job, yet the two agree to do it, and it turns out Mr. Krabs ridiculously covers up his walls with his merchandise to the last inch.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' SpongeBob and Patrick to start removing anything on the walls so they can start painting the walls.\\
'''Instead:''' Patrick orders SpongeBob not to clear the walls since they're not getting paid to relocate the stuff, even though they're also not getting paid to even paint the walls.
