☆  get away with  罪を逃れる


If you get away with something, it means you do it without suffering any punishment or bad consequences. This is usually used in the situation where you have done something wrong or risky, but you could also use it in a work situation. For example:

I was supposed to go to a work dinner last night, but I got away with not going.
This week I’ve gotten away with not doing any overtime!
I can’t believe she got away with that, the boss should have punished her.

Have you gotten away with something recently? What happened?
