See also CopsNeedTheVigilante for when the cops actively enlist civilians to work outside the law. Also compare IllPretendIDidntHearThat (an authority figure ignores an infraction while making it clear that it ''was'' noticed) and FakeStatic (a character pretends to not hear inconvenient orders or statements over a "noisy" communications channel). Overlaps with INeedToGoIronMyDog if the excuse is blatantly transparent. Not to do with a father [[DisappearedDad stepping out for coffee]].
