(Yahoo!Finance) My children are fans of the food at Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Soft, fresh tacos; black beans; melted cheese - what's not to like? So I was intrigued when I read about a payment policy that the restaurant chain uses in some locations. It's called "rounding" (which, by coincidence, my daughter is learning about at elementary school).
The Consumerist recently riffed on a column in The Star-Ledger, which reported on Chipotle's practice of rounding the change in receipt totals for cash transactions at some restaurants. These locations do this so that cashiers don't have to handle lots of coins, which tends to slow the lines down.
