Your reply touched a nerve for me too. I am tired of hearing "Well, I believe that everyone should expect that if I said I wanted "Feature A", that it also meant I wanted "Feature B".

When I ask for specific written instructions I get "Well, I can't do that!"

I am a single programmer working in a small company, directly for the owner of said company. Sigh | :sigh:
It would be so much easier if they knew, or at least thought about what they asked for up front.
