Pet Peeves

I was watching television when a commercial for a local Italian restaurant came on, throughout the entire ad the announcer pronounce it "I-talian" with a long i instead of a short i. My first thought when I heard that was "Do they come from I-taly?" I don't know if this is a local thing or if other areas pronounce it that way too.

Another pet peeve of mine is when people will say "There's 5 people waiting." When it should be "There are 5 people waiting." I guess it's laziness. I have caught myself doing it, I mentally kick myself and swear to not do again.
