A ‘Go away’ icon?

Reading Time: less than a minute

I was blissfully working on something really important when I got this notification.

I read it, understood it, but I didn’t want to deal with it right then. The general behaviour of notifications is that there will be an option to dismiss it for now. So out of habit, I looked for the close icon and to my horror saw the ‘Go’ arrow. I assumed that if I clicked on the arrow, it would take me to the ‘Notification Center’ or ‘Firewall Options’ screen.

I racked my head on how to dismiss this notification and it dismissed itself (as notifications usually do after a few seconds). 

These notifications happened to me multiple times from different applications until one day I decided that I am going to deal with all these issues. I clicked on the arrow to take me to the Notification centre and ‘Voila!’ I’ve dismissed the notification.

As it turned out, the ‘Go’ arrow stood for ‘Go away’!
