Very nice. Did you leave them with a roll of tape for other "repairs" ? Obviously I have no idea what you charged but I bet they wish they did it right the FIRST time.

Nah, the tape was sitting on the kitchen counter. I'm not sure what I charged either, my dad handles all of that. It was on a job with an addendum to the contract after a home inspection.

I just hope that it was the homeowner who did that and not a professional...

very nice, but it's not complete hack-free until those plastic angle stops are replaced with real angle stops.
and perhaps remove the sticker off the tailpiece extension to make a watertight seal.

Let me guess the guy at the box store told the guy from Craigslist this is how to install a drain? Chuckle chuckle snort.

I know it's nothing to do with a building but I felt pretty shameful after doing it
