hot and cold switched...DUH!

So, I'm enjoying my new bathroom remodel. Haven't needed to actually use the sink until yesterday. Could not get any hot water. Infact, it kept getting colder. Switched to cold and it got hot. Obviously, the supply lines got switched. But when I think about it, the plumber did it wrong. The pipes coming out of the wall are wrong. He put the cold on the left and the hot on the right. When I reattached the supply lines I didn't even think twice about the location of the pipes. Then I remember way back when I remolded this bathroom maybe twenty years ago, the same thing happened.

At least it should be an easy fix - as long as your hoses are long enough.
Definitely recommend marking H/C on the wall to remind you and the next person that it's not quite as it seems.
