I have the opposite problem, one of my housemates can't be bothered paying an exact third because typing .33 is apparently too much effort so he just rounds it up to the nearest dollar. Because of that we usually overpay our rent by a tiny amount each month which can add up to several dollars over the course of a year. Of course that's not actually a problem to anyone involved in this whole process but I like things to be neat, dammit.

Every now and then someone will forget to pay rent on time and we'll get a text message from the estate agent saying "$XX.XXc is overdue!" and that's how I find out the exact amount we've overpaid.
