: What is the phrase for describing the act of ignoring or overlooking what's obvious before them?
: ex: A friend of mine smokes. At a gathering we all know when he sneaked out for a cigarette because he returns smelling of smoke --yet no one openly acknowledges it.

I have heard the phrase from an Australian "thats' as obvious as dogs balls" maybe this will help at the next tea party!!!
