    I have one to add to the Committee one.
    When dealing with corporations you can sometimes get multiple people putting their own input in, and quite often contradicting each other because they aren't acting as a group mind.

    Always delegate 1 person as the decision maker formally, and ignore any attempts to subvert it.

    Maybe it was trying to hit on that, but it wasn't exactly clear to me because you also get groups that take forever to make a decision instead of many people making decisions... if that makes sense :D

    "clients" who come in and badger you for information 100 times before buying making it usless as the time you spent obtaining the deal is worth less then the deal in the end - even if was decent sized budget when first started talking
    this client will come in constantly asking questions then dissapearing again only to ultimately make a decision and you may never get informed on this decision - making you wonder how many others they did this too before making any decision
    -- proper effing time wasters

    Some of these were so accurate it hurt ;)

    I had to email a Ms. Lurker this morning actually. These type of clients often tend to disappear when you require crucial information from them, re their previous long list of requests. It can be infuriating.
