A job I looked at. He wanted to properly trim around it. I told him I was afraid I wasn't the contractor for him if all he wanted was to trim it out. Haha!

Don't worry, the shut off has already been extended. And you shouldn't bother replacing it if it leaks, it's right over the trash can already. Brilliant!

That's funny, a contractor I used to work for just renovated his rental property. The pictures he put up show that exact same situation, too lazy to move the waste line, or messing up the dimensions of the toilet I think.

lol, that is right, er....down there. I used the same line recently on a $10K job. He got a fixed bid for half that and my bid had write up clauses as materials were still not fully specified.

"Ya know, you can just disregard my bid as I'm probably not the contractor you're looking for...."

I'm game for just about anything. However, that one would make me laugh so hard I would probably get kicked in the teeth.

I always had to sniff the glue to get the pattern to "flow" out of me just right with stuff like that.
