rubber-ear
 n.— «It has called for the first module fee of £600 to be paid for by the taxpayer to raise morale among teaching’s minions but the Executive has rubber-eared (oops, slipped into Glasgow patois) this request. By the looks of things, I’ll be a pensioner before I’ll be a Chartered Teacher.» —“New scheme with that sinking feeling” by Hugh Reilly Scotsman (Glasgow, Scotland) Apr. 20, 2005.
