Ugh the "cheers" pandemic in this country gives me migraines. I have a feeling many don't even use the word right.

I think that Anglophilia is creeping into US English language usage in a more general way. I can't tell you how many people I've heard talk about going on "holiday", or references to soccer as "football" in addition to the overuse of "cheers."

I blame this on Harry Potter.
That's just the tip of the ice cube.

I can't stop preceding all statements to service personell with the word "uh."

As in, "Would you like a bag?" "Uh yes."

Even worse, my town is full of wannabe Fred Dursts, except most of them have a rebel flag tattoo.

Ukuleles never went away.  Did you know that Bowie wrote the music to "Lust for Life" on a ukulele?
