They ask for it to be like X, you clarify that they really want X because it's a weird request, they say they NEED it to be like X so you do it like X. A year later everything has gone to hell in their corner of the world because they assumed the system would work like Y, why doesn't it work like Y? You tell them it was intentionally designed to work like X. They say that's weird and it should never have been done that way. Same person, original request is still logged, in detail, in writing, they definitely asked it to work like X. Hmmm.
