What's the parlance for doing something 'involving' a thing (vs To the thing)?

The following only triggers if the player used ‘waiter’ as the first noun:

Instead of doing anything other than examining to the waiter:

but if the player tries giving luggage to the waiter, the luggage is now the first noun so the above rule doesn’t fire.

I tried ‘with’ (Instead of doing anything other than examining with the waiter:) but that seemed to make no difference. And I tried ‘involving’ and that didn’t compile.

Did I imagine this existing, or is there a way to phrase it?

Does this do what you want?
Instead of doing anything when the second noun is the waiter:

How about

instead of doing anything when the current action involves the frob

Great, that’s the one! Thanks. I can alter this to “instead of doing anything OTHER THAN blah when the current action involves the frob”, which is where I was trying to get to.
