      Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

                    I know it is an Innovative way of solving a problem, but

                    If you wanted the tall spigot, and your counter was similar, how would you go about making a working solution, to the problem?

                    yes it may have been possible to move the top section of counter top a few inches,
                    and yet depending on how it was assembled, it may not have, (have seen more than once where the unit was field made and the counters were fastened down and then laminated).
                    or one could have remade the counter top? or if there was some scrap or left over plastic laminated one could have possibly cut a section out of the counter and relamated it. with the spigot fully exposed. and made it look fair,

                    how many plumbers have the skill or the willingness to do that type of work, most would have been needing to hire other trades men to come in and do the counter top work.

                    not knowing the people or the finances or the vanity level of there life style, it looks like a fairly simple and low cost fix to the problem, about the only other fix was not to use that type of faucet,

                    no I do not like it, or would I have wanted to do it that way, but I am not the one living with it, but I do understand it.

                    when we were first married and I started to remodeled this house we move a wall, and lived with holes in the floor for many months where the flooring was not under the walls,
                    as we did not have the money to put in flooring or a new sub floor for a time,
                    (had never ran in to construction that the walls were built before the floor was layed),

                      We did one about 10 years ago and that's what they did,they took a hole saw to it and cut an arc in the top,then redid the edge.

                          Gee am I the only that thinks the solution was elegant? I'm sayin'

                          ELEGANT!!
                          See the gold? -->

                          Why is elegant you ask? Gee, I'm glad you asked.

                          Engineers like it when a single solution solves multiple issues. The counter penetration hole obviously allowed the installation of the gooseneck faucet. But that hole also acts as a spout support to hold that monstrosity of a filter hanging off the end of the spout.

                          Shweeeeet.

                            i would have done like you said cut out the counter top to the width of the sink with a rounded outside and in side corners
                            it would look nice that way
