‘look through someone’

When you look through someone, you ignore the person completely. You pretend as if he or she doesn’t exist. It could be that you are thinking about something else and fail to notice the person in front of you.

Examples: ”The last time I saw my cable operator, he looked right through me.” * ”When I attend weddings, some of my cousins look through me.”
