rubber ear
 n.— «There can be no greater put-down than a stand-up. A dissy, a rubber ear, or cold shoulder, only the names are changed to protect the guilty.…Can you imagine the stench in the streets if every guy or girl rubber-eared on a date, decided to wait until their dates came to their senses?» —“Stood up and counted” by Stephen Mcginty The Herald (Glasgow, Scotland) May 21, 1994.
