Incorrectly Wired Outlet Found In Newly Built Home

Outlet Tester:
I changed out a failed outlet (properly called a receptacle) in a friend’s home where I found 3 different mistakes made by the home builder/electrician. These mistakes don’t go against NEC but are not following best practices. I will quickly review what these 3 mistakes are and how to correct each.
