He mentioned they chose a cheap tile, probably one of those 99 cents/ sq ft. ones. There have been a couple times I've had to install those over the years, and their inconsistent, slightly trapezoidal shape makes straight lines impossible.

Just gotta do the best you can sometimes

That’s what I figured too. I would have warned them and then if they didn’t return the tile I would have passed on the job, but not everyone has that luxury. I didn’t 5-6 years ago.
