LOL. You guys are so entertaining!
I don't even want to get started on the Made In China garbage... Drill bits from China were the bane of my existence. Good thing I still have some good US made ones in a toolbox.
MAD King, I think it is great that you labeled the parts. I think that worked out for you in the long run. :-)
My father used to call it "idiot labeling", but I think it is a very good idea.
I take it switching the lines worked? (and don't feel bad, while I've never hooked up a faucet, I have put things together wrong even when clearly labeled because of a brain fart).
