look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
 
1.
An act of removing one's self prematurely at a place or event, especially Applied Differential Equations 1 lecture. A mcglinchey can also occur when the self fails to meet the arrival time, and feels the like the event was a waste of time and that he/she should have not shown up anyways because they assume they know what they're doing.
I'm thinking about pulling a mcglinchey today, I don't want to sit there the whole 2 hours.
