When you say "foo.should_receive(:bar)" you're saying "foo should receive bar sometime between now and the end of this example. The first example, the "get" is doing something that causes @user.articles to receive :find_by_id, but in the second example that's already happened before you set the expectation and does not happen again, so you get a failure message.
