    Bullshit.

    You said Jews may wish each other "Pesach Sameach" ("PAY-sock sah-MEY-akh").

    It shouldn't be too hard to provide a few examples of Jews wishing each others 'paysock sahmeyakh' then.

    As far as using the standard 'Latin' alphabet, you could have written 'pessar' or 'pessah'

    Lastly, correcting someone who makes a mistake like you do could be taken as a favor instead of a painful remark.

    Depends on who you're talking to, I guess

    No. I gave you exactly what you asked for. You're just being an asshat.

    No. I ask for evidences of many Jews saying 'paysock' to prove that it is indeed generally deemed acceptable.

    You have just provided a video of one random guy saying paysock several times which proves nothing.

    And now you're resorting to insults.

    Big fail

    "Pessar" or "Pessah" wold be less recognizable to Jews. But if correcting other peoples' pronunciations is what helps you make friends, then by all means, please keep at it.

    Because you think 'paysock' is more recognisable? Wow.

    Still waiting for you to show that it is generally deemed acceptable.
