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.
