1. smell is the sense that's most closely linked to memory. so if you wanna get out with minimal damage from the start, don't fucking smell anything. and change things up while you're at it so you don't form any associations.
2. in the event that this has happened, be aware that everyone forgets eventually.
3. if you're the type that REALLY tends to remember things (and well), be aware that everyone forgets eventually.
so just be a little patient.
and don't be angry at others' ability to move on so easily. (what, like you've never been that guy.)
and don't be angry.
