Pet peeve update (Llama)

Heard on CNN this morning:

"she was literally glued to the television."

Really? Did she go to the emergency room afterwards, because that could result in some skin loss. At least her eyes weren't literally glued to the television...

So what you are saying is that "literally" has lost its literal meaning and it's literally driving you batty.

I'm literally confused, oh, wait, I don't think I'm playing the game correctly.

I KNOW!!!! Where did this come from?? Why do people not understand that if something "literally" happened, that means that it REALLY happened exactly as described? It is NOT a signal for emphasis. GAHHHHHHH.

This is literally one of my biggest pet peeves.
