Today, my boss yet again said she was "literally dying", after she watched a funny video online. Long story short, I'm now on her shitlist because I couldn't help but point out that she clearly wasn't dying, and that her ranting was distracting me from doing actual work. FML

I read somewhere that the word 'literally' is *literally* the most misused word in the English language.

Even newspaper headlines and articles misuse the word, which is pretty shocking in my opinion.

The word that 99.9% of the time people mean to use, is actually 'figuratively'.

Random and off topic I know, but just thought it was an interesting fact :)

OP sounds like a total ass.
correcting your boss on trivial matters and saying she's distracting you from actual work?
Somebody needs to learn his place on the food chain!

I kinda agree? I had to make a conscious effort to stop saying the word "literally". I knew I wasn't "literally starving to death" but people get into bad habits with trend words like that. I'm willing to bet her boss knows the definition of a literal situation. Basically OP, you deserve it. It's just a word.

How is it hard to keep your mouth shut and not be a pretentious douchebag? It's not hard at all considering the fact that people uses 'literally' wrong all the time, especially if that person is your boss. There's never a real time to be pretentious, but there are preferred situations. It literally wasn't this one.

You could've helped it, but didn't. Now you know better than to correct the boss on non-essential matters. Use this knowledge at your next job.

Rule #2 of life: Make a list of all the times you wish you could have called your boss out on stupid shit like this in case you win the lottery and get to tell them to shove it.
