Might be one of the reasons why Duke Nukem Forever takes so long.

This is why cubical wall are padded, and keyboards are so often replaced.

The way to deal with these changes is to assure the client they'll be in the next version. If you try to adapt to every single change request, it's going to end in tears.

Dilbert's problem is that constantly swings between "trusting others" and "distrust of others" (with obvious exceptions being his opinions of boss/coworker).

Right here we have witnessed one of those swing moments.

Dilbert's reaction is really strange. He is an experienced engineer, and must certainly know that the customer's specifications _always_ change (and change often). A successful project relies on figuring out in advance what is going to change and already having contingency plans to deal with it. Now, if the PHB was coming to say that, after the 16 changes in 3 weeks, necessitating evening and weekend working to accomodate, the customer wanted to revert to the original specifications, Dilbert's reactions would be more reasonable.
