When I first met one special person, I made the mistake of saying "Sweet Odin's Raven". And then she said "By the beard of Zeus!" And then I said "Uncle Jonathan's Corncob Pipe!" And it continued from there.
Of course, I find it difficult to imagine a Kafkaesque situation that isn't from Kafka.
Like in The Trial when Josef K. has to meet an employer and no one told him when so he assumes he's to meet them at 9 and he gets in trouble for being late, so he told to be there at 8:45 the next week and he does and no one is there.
