I came here to post this. What annoyed me the most is that ever since Merriam-Webster caved in and formally recognizes the alternative meaning, the English language no longer have a word to explain something that happens, well, literally. This bugs me to no end."Literally" used as the opposite of what the word is supposed to mean.
My second top annoyance is the recent(?) trend of using the phrase 'low key' in almost everything. The original meaning is straight forward, but recently I've heard it used in all kinds of different sentences that to me make no sense whatsoever.
And there you go. After all that I feel like I need to get some kids off my lawn or something.
