Why do people misuse this word so much? At first, I thought it was just the stereotypical 12 year old girls on myspace who describe themselves as "random" and claim that "MUSIC IS MY LYFEEE!!" But one of my teachers and some of my friends say it at unnecessary times now, and it makes me want to choke a baby. My friend was talking about the movie Sandlot when Babe Ruth's ghost "comes out of the closet". My friend, realizing what he had said, tried to save it by saying, "Well, not literally haha.".....Yes he did literally come out of the closet, you idiot! If he didn't, it'd mean he's gay!

I guess rant in this thread about how stupid some people are and post more overused/misused words.

People confuse literally with figuratively. Just laugh at their insolence.

Yeah, that's legit annoying.

I hate girls who say they are "random", but are far from it.
"Oooh! I'm so random, I will go and do random things like literally."

I myself am sad to admit that I'm getting annoyed with the overuse of the word "epic."

At one point I heard it used by three different people a total of four times within a matter of 15 seconds. Literally.
#27
You know i hate it more when you talk to someone that barely listens to music and the say "i listen to everything". No, you don't.

Quote by timo1
I understand when people use it in the right context.
What I don't understand is why people say virtually.
eg.That's virtually impossible


It is in the correct context.

The definition for "virtually" out of the Mariam-Webster online dictionary is:
1 : almost entirely : nearly 2 : for all practical purposes <virtually unknown>.

To say "that is virtually impossible" is proper English. It would that a particular action is almost entirely or for all practical purposes impossible to execute.
