PVC to COPPER stupid mistake

Okay... so I cut the copper pipe, got the Fernco coupling, put a new subfloor over the old for extra support... ALL WAS PERFECT UNTIL... I placed the TileRedi shower pan over the floor and I freaked... the pan's drain is 14 inches off the back wall, my drain is 16 inches center off the back wall... NOW WHAT? I am in tears. I know, I know, it's my fault I didn't check the specs for the TileRedi shower pan, but I can't return it (20% restocking fee, shipping of $150 - their cost and mine to return it...). So now I need a bent something by two inches to compensate for the offset. Any suggestions (aside from hiring a professional)?

You can rerough the drain. that means cut the drain out and trap and install new pipe and trap in the location needed for your pan.
