Here's a good example (from the movie, When Harry Met Sally):
: There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.
: Which one am I?
: You're the worst kind; you're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.
: I don't see that.
: You don't see that? Waiter, I'll begin with a house salad, but I don't want the regular dressing. I'll have the balsamic vinegar and oil, but on the side. And then the salmon with the mustard sauce, but I want the mustard sauce on the side. "On the side" is a very big thing for you.
: Well, I just want it the way I want it.
: I know; high maintenance.
