Probably more like the guy just doesn't care. You seem to run into that a lot, people that don't take any pride in what they do. And yes, the purpose of using a jig is to make sure the holes are drilled in the right spot, but if the jig isn't mounted right in the first place, or if the guy doesn't know what he's doing, than the jig isn't going to help. I've seen it happen more often than you might think, just as I've seen skis tuned so poorly or often ruined. The story is that a lot of these shops have a problem finding enough help in their busy season, so they end up taking what they can get and hoping for the best. I had a guy ruin a pair of K2 Fours I had by grinding the edge into the sidewall. The owner agreed to replace the skis, but in the process of mounting the new pair misplaced the jig, and put a hole through the peizoelectric device (the blinking light thing), thus ruining the ski. He didn't have any other pairs in stock, so he had to go back to K2 before I finally got a replacement pair. The majority of shops are not like that, most of the shops I frequent have the same guys there year after year, guys that are there because of their love for the sport and because they're into what their doing. It's too bad that a few indifferent people give everybody in the business a bad name. If your skis are mounted so badly that they are that noticeable, I'd ask the owner to make them right. Anybody can make a mistake. If he refuses, than you'll be better off to take your business somewhere else.
