Leverage / leveraged. Especially leveraged. I hate that word when used as a verb by some spotty little cock who thinks it makes him / her sound like a business guru. Every time I hear it, I really want to attach a pair of pliers to their ear/ nose/ nipple and demonstrate the true meaning of leverage.
