Sorry, but your own peculiar idiolect is no evidence of a general acceptance.
You will need to provide many instances of Jews saying 'paysock' to prove that it is indeed generally deemed acceptable, as you say.
A youtube video will do.
It's a different alphabet, with different sounds. When I go to a diner, I know the correct pronunciation of the Greek "gyro." However, the wait staff probably doesn't, and if I tried ordering it with the proper Greek pronunciation (which can't be put into English letters), I would come across as a pretentious douche.

However, if פֶּסַח proves difficult to say, no one (other than Paris) will correct you if you pronounce it "PAY-sock."
