When a metaphor fits like a glove

Sandy found this gem, which probably applies to more professions than just Web Designers.  Working with clients such as these can be really trying, but what can you do to get through it?

If Architects Had to Work Like Web Desginers…

Please design and build me a house. I am not quite sure of what I need, so you should use your discretion. My house should have somewhere between two and forty-five bedrooms. Just make sure the plans are such that the bedrooms can be easily added or deleted. When you bring the blueprints to me, I will make the final decision of what I want. Also, bring me the cost breakdown for each configuration so that I can arbitrarily pick one.
