often used on the internet when saying goodbye
joe: Hey, i got to go eat dinner, bye.
jack: ok, cya.

1. Cover your arse - be careful; being able to blame someone else when something really bad happens; a way to say "take care"

2. See ya
1. Hey, hf and cya

2. I've got something to do, well, cya later

Cover your ass - a way of saying "I'm going to do just enough CYA so that when something goes wrong I can blame someone else down the line" Another example of society going into a slow death spiral.
Boss: Why didn't you put the fire out before it burned down the building!

Jones: I didn't know the room I was in was on fire because I was doing something important on the internet, Johnson didn't check the smoke detector batteries.

Boss: Way to CYA Jones!

"arse" sounds like a down east Canadian expression

In Ontario, it's "cover your ass"
Here in Ottawa, in the public service, one must make sure to CYA in everything you do, and covering your boss's ass isnt a bad thing either.
