“Fifth Third Bank.”

Not good English and not good Math either!

You can’t be fifth and third at the same time!

I really want another bank to take over Fifth Third Banks and change the name. Let’s reduce that fraction, the one called FIVE Thirds and reduce it to the One and Two Thirds Bank or the Almost Second Bank. Or the First and change. We can’t change it to a decimal as two thirds is equivalent to 0.6666666 repeating ad infinitum. I guess we could round it off like a dollar amount and make it one point six-seven (1.67). But Fifth third is so cacophonous it’s annoying to even try to say it.

Just my humble opinion as I try to remain positive in a sea of negativity.
