lit·er·al·ly
/ˈlitərəlē/
Adverb
In a literal manner or sense; exactly: "the driver took it literally when asked to go straight over the traffic circle".
Used to acknowledge that something is not literally true but is used for emphasis or to express strong feeling.

It annoys me when people get all upset over misused words too, but "literally" holds a special place in the English language. It literally means the opposite of "figuratively," so you can't say, "I was using it figuratively," because that doesn't make sense and it's never going to.
