* The second book of the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series starts with Rachel attempting to warn Chase that some strange creature is approaching while Chase is busy discussing some matters with Zedd. Chase brushes her off, since an indoors garden can have no dangerous animals. Once they barely beat of the murderous demonic creature (at the cost of several dozen bystanders), Chase tells her "Give me a kick if I ever ignore your words again".

*** That part is highly exaggerated. With Hitler constantly shifting the attack date, and the forces on the border not even matching what was sent against France in 1940, the reports ''legitimately'' weren't believable, and some, in fact, ''were'' obvious misinformation (a classic being one stating the first priority for Germans would be bombarding car factories in Moscow).

As for the "hours before they woke him up", much of the inner circle was in his cabinet at quarter to six in the morning.

* In ''Film/ToraToraTora'', when the USS ''Ward'' sinks an invading Japanese submarine attempting to sneak into the Pearl Harbor base and radios the base about the incident, a captain refuses to believe it and refuses to pass it on because the ''Ward'''s captain was very young and new. Lampshaded in the base commander, Admiral Kimmel, is furious that he didn't get the report right away.

* In ''Anime/LoveLive'', this is practically the reason Kotori gives Honoka for why she never told her [[spoiler:she is going to study aboard to a european fashion school]]: she tried to, but everytime she opened her mouth, Honoka brushed her off in favor of Love Live. Honoka's quite ashamed at the fact that a lot of trouble would have been done away if she hadn't spent that time focusing on Love Live.

** And in ''[[Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hollows Part 2]]'', while Harry is trying to [[spoiler:find the tiara]], Luna is chasing after him to tell him something important about said treasure. At first this trope seems to be played straight, with Harry repeatedly brushing Luna off, telling her "not now" and so on, before Luna finally stops dead and yells out, "HARRY POTTER!" which gets Harry to turn around and actually listen to her, in an absolutely beautiful subversion of the trope.
