Can anybody provide the specific name of a webcomic to go with this example:

  • In one webcomic, a character, realizing that his home is being burglarized, hides under the bed, and desperately tries to remember what he knows about how to deal with burglars- that they're after his stuff, not him, and won't kill him if he can't identify them. Much to his dismay, one looks under the bed to ask him a question.
    Burglar': He can't hear you because you have your mask off. Take your mask off, Joe Ghiribaldi.
    Burglar 2: Good idea, Michael Tiberius Smith!

This paragraph was added to the main description, without any additional examples that document anything like this occurring with the stated trope to begin with:

"Another version happens with people who are serious or experienced criminals, but who experience Motive Decay or It Gets Easier to the point of letting down the safeguards they previously used, taking more extreme risks, and generally falling victim to the Plethora of Mistakes that ensues from that."

Are there any examples we can add to the page that fit this description first?

Got a Zero Context Example here. It can go back on the page once anybody who knows more about this can elaborate on it some more...

If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
