Took him a while to fix it because anytime somebody would mention it he'd go put his level on it and blame it on optical illusions.
Oh one of those guys, I thought you meant he was being critical not avoiding the obvious.

I've been known to make snowflakes whine!

They have no idea what looks good or not. A lot of electrician don't seem to understand this.

I've done commercial, industrial, and residential and I can't think of a single customer who would ever notice the difference.
They wouldn't. But I would and that's what counts.
I personally would not like the appearance of two conduits strapped that way.
When I ran conduit years ago, I staggered my straps so none of them were vertically aligned. Close, but never in the same place.
It always looked the best to me.
