Client: We won't pay until you add this new feature that was never in the original specs.
*One week later after adding new feature

    I've never had to work for clients in that way, but, if their original request was in writing and you fulfilled that the first time, I'd tell them to bugger off... Perhaps even sue them if the money and time was substantial.

    Are your customers breaking their contracts or are the contracts just disadvantageous?

    Yeah, happened to me, too. It's a problem with manglement tbh and will set a bad precedent for any future work they'll have you do for that client. Expect more of the same.
