In California, the word is "DEFinitely!"....... It is said by

all service personnel, including taxi, uber, and lyft drivers constantly.
Sometimes, it is prefaced by the phrase, "Fer sure"(sic). So, "Fer sure, DEFinitely", 6 syallabes, replaces the former affirmative word "Yes".

Example- In the restaurant, I say to the server, "Tonight I'm going to have the grilled salmon, please." Reply- "Fer sure, DEFinitely!"
"And to drink, I'd like a glass of ice water, please." Reply, "Fer sure, DEFinitely!"
( I think this might have come from California surfer culture, but it is absolutely widespread. I mean, "DEFinitely". :-) - B4E
