Default ignition timing so far off I can't correct it by rotating the distributor

I have a 1995 Accord 1.5L manual transmission, and I want to correct the ignition timing of the engine. Unfortunately, the correct setting for the timing is outside the range allowed by loosening the distributor retaining bolts and rotating the distributor. I have to actually take off all three bolts and rotate the distributor CCW until it's about 0.7-0.8 times the length of the curved bolt slot beyond the end of the slot. I've taken off the distributor in order to see if there's a way to adjust the rotor angle relative to the cam shaft, but the drive connection looks somewhat like a flat head screwdriver+screw, so that's not going to work. Is there anything elseI can adjust? How did my car get into this situation? It's been like this for about 2 years when a shop replaced the timing belts and water pump. Thanks.

The shop put at least one belt on out of alignment by at least one tooth.

Have a /competent/ shop check the belt alignment and move as necessary.
