Unannounced changes to the platform - breaking core things we were working with - under deadline, with a client recently resulted in one of the worst disasters I've ever had to deal with on a project. It devolved into the collapse of a startup, not getting paid for almost half of the work we did, sleepless nights trying to hack impossible workarounds, a shady last-ditch buyout deal and multiple shouting matches with otherwise rational executives over un-realized expectations.

Facebook, get your freakin act together.
