Does it annoy you when people say `literally`, even though that they`re saying isn`t literal?

People don't do that around me. I guess it would be annoying, but I think it would depend on the specific situation in which it was presented.

I literally kill anyone who uses that word around me, and I literally just puked from the mere fact of having to read the word literally. I literally did.

Now it doesn't even sound like a word anymore, I just said it so many times...

Gah! That drives me crazy! It's probably my biggest pet peeve.

People probably are, but you're just not noticing it. I even hear it on the news occasionally.

I seem to hear/read it all the time.

Kind of. Like..."I'm literally boiling to death it's so hot out"
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 4/19/06 - 9:39:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
It annoys me anytime anyone misuses ANY word.

like that sketch on mad tv. that was literally the funniest sketch i've ever seen on tv. literally.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 4/24/06 - 6:55:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but not as much as when people use "virtual" incorrectly.

I literally can't think of anything that could be funnier than that sketch. I literally laughed so hard that my sides literally split. Literally.

Yeah, because it's a good word and is being warped to mean "really." It's kind of like some form of hyperbole.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 5/20/06 - 8:02:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if it's constant and overexaggerating the stupidest thing possible.

"Oh my god, that is literally the cutest handbag in the world".

I've had someone tell me that it was literally raining cats and dogs outside. Heh.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 6/15/06 - 9:40:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I say that.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 6/15/06 - 9:41:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
not really, i do hate it when people say 'like' all the time.

Like like, it was really like awesome and it was like really like cool like...

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 6/15/06 - 4:18:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Um... I think it can be pretty funny, actually. This probably stems from when I was at a friends.. and she had a hanging picture of Jesus... and it fell on the floor and she yelled "Jesus! .... literally!" and I about died. And that's what I think of anytime someone says it now.

It only annoys me when someone says it... and they're serious. But I too get annoyed when people misuse words just because they don't know any better.

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 6/15/06 - 10:00:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
it doesn't really bother me at all.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/5/06 - 9:40:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes that is soo annoying. its so dumb
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/13/06 - 3:41:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes! my little brother does that all the time, but he's nine...and i doubt he knows what it means, which drives me even more crazy.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 8/28/06 - 8:58:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I heard a sports announcer say, "He's literally dead on his feet out there." And I was like, um, no he isn't. At least, I hope not...
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/29/06 - 8:00:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'll usually point it out to them, but I can think of worse things in the world.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 11/11/06 - 7:05:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, but only because I say it literally all the time.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/22/06 - 5:27:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
drating criss angel says it all the time!

That sketch came literally to mind when I read this question. That is literally, the best sketch ever. And I literally had to throw a literally, like 4 times. Because this post literally is not annoying enough
