4am and feeding the new one... really makes you wonder about the etymology of the word.

AFAIK, issue=problem is not as widely used outside US.

I wonder if other English native countries do this as much as we do with other words.

Another US usage that my UK or AU colleagues never commit is using "since" as "because". To them, since is a signal of time, not causation.
