Internet for Assholes Guide, Part 43

It is possible to deal with any unpleasant or unwanted instant messaging conversation in three simple steps:

  1. Type “I’ve gotta go”
  2. Press the ‘enter’ key
  3. Before any response, immediately press Command-Q (or Ctrl-Q, or whatever relevant keyboard shortcut for quit is relevant on your platform of choice)

It is recommended that then you go for a walk.

Remember: life is only as complicated as you allow it to be.
