Ha, it's funny. I'm a bit over six feet, maybe 6'1". I frequently have variations of the following conversation with women:
"How tall are you?"
"I'm not sure exactly, but about 6 feet for 6'1"."
"No, that can't be right. You're at least 6'3"
"No, really, I'm about 6'1" at most. I'm definitely not 6'3".
"You must be, because my [husband/boyfriend/whatever] is six feet tall, and you're much taller than him . . . "
From which I surmise there's a whole lotta "rounding up" going on out there.
