pet peeve

If you are a business owner who decides to do your own radio ads,
And your company offers cellular phone service,
And the name of your company has the word "cellular" in it,

Then you should really learn how to pronounce the word "cellular".

It's SELL-YOU-LUR, not SAY-U-LUR.

And another thing: it's JEWELRY, not JEWRY.

Christ, you people.
