It irritates me when people misuse the word, “Irony.”

Irony;

1. The use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend.
2.

Literature.

a.

a technique of indicating, as through character or plot development, an intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or ostensibly stated.
b.

(especially in contemporary writing) a manner oforganizing a work so as to give full expression tocontradictory or complementary impulses, attitudes, etc.,especially as a means of indicating detachment from asubject, theme, or emotion.
5.

an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.
