Because I'm annoyed that a bottle of soda now costs $1.50 instead of $1.25 at my school.
Obviously you've never seen Airplane!Mason said:I hate it when people say "the shit has literally hit the fan." Do you know what LITERALLY means?
Simile: Busy as a bee.
Metaphor: Busy bee. (Speaking of a person who is a person and not an actual bee.)
Literal: Busy bee. (Speaking of an actual bee that is a bee and not a person.)
The shit has not LITERALLY hit the fan. The shit may have fucking hit that fan, or a whole lot of damn shit may be hitting the fan at once, but it is not LITERALLY hitting the fan.
STOP MISUSING THE WORD "LITERAL"
