# Chipotle Math

From the consumerist:

On the first, dated July 13, the nine items added up to \$32.93. There was \$2.31 in tax. The total should have been \$35.24, but next to the “total” line on the receipt, it said \$35.25.

The next receipt, with the same sale date, showed a subtotal of \$8.64. The tax was \$0.60, so the grand total should have been \$9.24. But no. With Chipotle-style math, the total was \$9.25.

The third receipt, dated July 17, had a subtotal of \$17.75 and tax of \$1.24. The total? \$19.00, but elementary school students would have come up with \$18.99.

1. Dang you for posting this near lunch time while I’m at school! Did this happen in Canada where there are no pennies?

1. I guess it only happens at some “high volume” chipotles. I went to Chipotle last night and got 76 cents back, so your milage may vary. Report back on your results! Also I believe that the Canadians are too nice to say something if they got shorted a penny.
