Perhaps noting the similarities and differences between classical and operant conditioning will help you think of real life examples.

Classical conditioning is characterized by several factors.

I. The key relationship is associating antecedent events.

II. It originates with reflexive behavior. The behavior is "built in."

III. Classical conditioning is essentially a process of stimulus substitution. The response essentially remains the same.

IV. The response is elicited, since the behavior is reflexive.

Operant (Instrumental) Conditioning was started by Skinner and his box. In contrast to classical conditioning, operant conditioning has some specific qualities.

I. Consequences to responses are the key relationship.

II. Emitted responses are voluntary rather than reflexive.

III. Response substitution occurs -- unreinforced responses go to extinction, while reinforced responses become stronger. Essentially operant conditioning is response contingent reinforcement.

You may want to look up some of the above terms.

Consult your texbook for ways to identify stimuli, responses and reinforcers.

Once you do this, only you can indicate your preferences.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
