The almost exact same thing happened to me when I was getting my touring bindings mounted on a pair of skis with 2 existing mounts. I measured, drew a line, and put tape at the midsole line that I wanted, told the guy when I dropped them off, 'this is what this is for, do it this way, call me if you have questions' and I get them back at recommended with the know nothing at the counter going, 'its probly not a big deal..' I just rolled over and took it, it wasn't worth another set of holes and I needed them for a trip as well. Just pissed me off that I went through the trouble and the uppity granola cross country shop with the randanee jigs thought they knew better than me about what I wanted.
