The inability to resist logging on to the World Wide Web
and participating in a real-time conversation
whenever the opportunity presents itself. A source of increasing concern on the part of companies whose employees have internet
access and exercise it to the detriment of their work.
Phone conversation between Quizro and Feldar:
Quizro: So my supervisor says I may be suffering from chat addiction.
Feldar: Chat addiction? What the fuck is that?
Quizro: I'm not a hundred percent sure.
Feldar: Is it like, "Wade prefers talking to interesting people over performing mind-crushingly boring data entry tasks"?
Quizro: I think that's the gist of it.
Feldar: I can see how that would be a serious problem.
Quizro: Me too, now that I think about it. Wait - THAT'S WHAT I'M DOING NOW! I'm chatting with you! Jesus Christ, I JUST CAN'T STOP!
Feldar: And when you get off the phone, you'll probably go CHAT WITH YOUR WIFE!
Quizro: It's true! I AM A CHAT ADDICT!
Feldar: Dude, you should get off the phone right now. This may be your last chance to turn this addiction around.
Quizro: Nah. I also prefer talking to interesting people to washing dishes. Sue me, I'm a fucking addict.
