Leverage My Ass

I am on a conference call in the dead of afternoon, mirabile dictu. People these days have started to say ‘leverage’ instead of ‘use’. As in ‘do you mind if I leverage your toilet to better void my bowels’?

It scarcely needs saying, but it does my head in. Do people really think in these terms, or are they just deliberately marketing themselves? And which is worse?
