I am weary of hearing "impact" for anything that has an effect on anything!

Never heard of "buffalo" expressed as a verb. A USA only practice maybe?

One I've been hearing lately is "Perfect." You give your server your order and he/she says, "Perfect." I paid for two hot dogs at a baseball game (had to take out a 2nd mortgage), paid, and the concessionaire said, "Perfect."
