When glue squeezes out on the inside corner of a joint, you can either smear it all over trying to wipe it up... OR you can scoop the glue up with a plastic straw. Push the straw into the corner just enough to make it conform to the joint, but not enough to collapse the straw. Then slide in along scooping up the glue.
