Know what I hate? WHen someone puts in a change request for additional data to be displayed when that data is completely unassociated with the original piece that was requested, and it requires a redesign of the complete infrastructure to accomodate it. And then they expect it to be done with no impact on the schedule because it's:
1.) a simple request,
2.) we should have anticipated the need for this data in the original design.

Usually said by the same people who would have a fit if you added the feature without their approval.

I once had a customer on a firmware who wanted a bunch more features added to a system where the firmware was already full. He had the balls to say to us that we should have designed the system with extra space available.

We told him we did and then spent the next half an hour pointing out to him all of the additions he had requested that used up the space.

He was an idiot. One of my favorite arguments with him was when he was trying to argue that an inconsistent user interface as a good thing.
