* A much less serious, but more common, example that many of us have committed ourselves. Some computer programs cause the same dialog boxes to appear so often that users can get into the habit of clicking away ''every'' box without thinking, even ones with important new information. (Not helped by the frequency of pop-up ads designed to imitate those boxes.)

* In the [[StormingTheCastle climactic battle]] of Creator/TadWilliams' ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'' series, [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guy]] Father Strangyeard gets brushed off by [[TheBigGuy Duke Isgrimnur]] when Strangyeard attempts to warn him that the tunnels the heroes used to infiltrate the enemy castle could also be used by the [[TheFairFolk Norns]] to counter-ambush them. Needless to say, the warning isn't received in time.

Added DiffLines:

* Particularly annoying in ''Manga/AstroBoy''. Even though everyone knows Astro is built with a LivingLieDetector and a way to distinguish if someone is good or evil Professor Ochanomizu will ignore his cries that someone is up to something evil, and when Astro tries to stop them on his own he will yelled at despite his consistent track record of stopping evil.

* In ''Literature/VoidCity'', Tabitha tries several times to tell Eric important information about Rachel, but he manages to cut her off each time; as he is her vampire sire, she is incapable of disobeying his orders, and so literally cannot continue speaking about the subject when he tells her to stop talking about it.

He patronizingly tells her to come back when they've broken some kind of law, as he's discussing important business (i.e. mineral rights).

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.
