pointlessly being pissed off about something

I acted in a play one time and Bertolt Brecht was one of the characters being portrayed. I was supposed to be Kurt Weil. One actor with a German background told us all that Brecht is pronounced “bresht” which started a discussion about what we should do because here in North Americaland, nobody pronounces it with an “sh” sound. I thought this was overly concerned and unnecessary to fret about but the first time I played Cologne and found out it’s name is Köln, I was pissed off, same goes for Paris and Portage avenue.
