Dictionary.com says:

1. in the literal or strict sense: She failed to grasp the metaphor and interpreted the poem literally.

The millennial use of the word means essentially the exact opposite of “literally,” since you obviously did not “literally die.” Unless you’re actually dead, in which case you’re literally not reading this.

Trigger Smith, a man who owns the bar “The Continental” is so fed up with the millennial usage of the word that he’s banned it from his bar, and if you say the word while you’re there, you will be given 5 minutes to finish your drink, and then you’ll be kicked out. It gets even more intense though – he says that if you start a sentence with the word, you’ll be kicked out immediately. He says that the word is “the most overused, annoying word,” and adds that people should “stop Kardashianism now!”

The owner admits that it’s “tongue-in-cheek” and you’ll not actually be kicked out, but he does say that it’s a word that really bugs him. At first, he says, the word seemed to start with millennials, but “now you hear newscasters using ‘literally’ every three minutes.”

What other words bug you? A quick poll around the office:
-Irregardless (which isn’t even a word)
-Yummy (if you’re over the age of 6, drop this from your vocabulary)

What else can we add?
