    I did so now! and the word I was looking for was "disobey". Thank you so much!!! – user272922 Dec 22 '17 at 14:05
  • Note that although you can disobey your father, or disobey an order (perhaps issued by your father), I can't help thinking there's something not quite right about saying I disobeyed what he told me to do. – FumbleFingers Dec 22 '17 at 14:10

If you're looking for a phrase that will make you sound like a native speaker, "blow off", is very mainstream. As in:

"I've got a lot of work to do - I'm going to blow off that meeting." (I'm not going to the meeting)

"My sister asked me to help her move, but, I blew her off." (I didn't help.)

"Fred blew off class because he had to blow off the test he didn't study for." (Fred didn't show up for class because he did not want to take the test.) (US)
