In their book, On My Honor, I Will, Randy Pennington and Marc Bockmon write:

“The most quoted excuse for not getting involved is “It’s not my job.” Business people step over the homeless in their path because helping them is “not my job.” Charitable organizations are unable to provide resources because those asked to give say, “It’s not my job.”

“At times, this excuse can go to ridiculous lengths. Peter Brown tells of a patron in Lindy’s restaurant on Broadway in New York who asked a passing waiter, “Can you tell me what time it is?” The waiter replied, “Sorry, sir, but that’s not my table!” Giving someone else’s customer the time of day was “not my job.”

What’s the most outlandish example you’ve seen so far of someone saying, “That’s not my job?”
