I'm having a rather bitter affair with my client who also happens to be my boss at office. He is a completely non-technical dumb muggle in terms of application development. The frustrating thing is that he and his ego requires me to put a lot of extra effort in validating and strictly enforcing the user input to be of fixed formats.
For instance, telephone numbers should only be like
1234-123456-12 and people names should only contain alphabets and spaces and no other characters. Feels like the North Korean regime..
