My New Vendetta

Quote from last Tuesday:

"There are literally dollars lying around the plant floor. We just have to figure out how to pick them up."

No. No. NO. I just toured the plant. I looked at the floor. There are no dollars out there. It's bare cement. If there were literally dollars out there I would literally be a few dollars richer right now.

This is by no means an isolated incident. The dictionary makes note of the continued abuse of this word. This must stop.

I propose drastic action. I call on all readers of Bensbane.net to take matters into their own hands. Whenever such flagrant language abuse takes place within earshot, pull out your trusty clue-by-four and apply some sense to the offending miscreant.
