Up for Grabs
A character tries Reverse Psychology
on another. Unfortunately, there was never a need for it in the first place, and so the person does just what they didn't want them to to - and on their own request too.
- Jon once tries to keep Garfield away from the curtains by asking him to sharpen his claws on it. It does not work.
- (I don't remember the name of the series - I think it was "Bepo's Men"? It's a police drama.) A father tries to keep her daughter from entering the police force by telling her that she should, thinking that it is just a phase for her and she just says she wants to be one to spite him. She doesn't.
