    .. if I didn't identify so much with it.

    haha oh wow. amusing article.. i could identify with that after working at a software company for... 6 months now ? clients and their random requests and stuff. but really, by the time the requirements come down to dev, it's not too outrageous.

    i guess the main difference is that web/software is meant to be flexible and customizable, whereas an architect is working with (mostly) unchangeable parts.

    I am working more or less as a web designer, so I don't find this funny :/

    And this is why I am glad that I will never be a web designer.

    ah customers and their little demands.

    I hope I can give this to every guest that we have but I think they'll find it insulting rather than funny.

    This is so true on so many levels. I'm printing this out.

    Architects get their share of headaches during design, but I think it's the General Contractors who deal with more problems from clients during actual construction.

    A client might be happy with how their building will look as designed by the architect...but as the actual building is taking shape during construction reality may not measure up to the clients ideal expectations and they get an itch to make last minute adjustments. If the client has the money they can get the changes they want, but no matter how good the finished project is the client may not be happy because they had to spend more to get what they wanted than originally planned. Which they will blame on the General Contractor because he or she will be the bearer of the bad news.
