"Hey I finished building the thing you asked for."
"Oh cool, can you also make it do this completely unrelated thing, that I haven't even hinted of needing until this very moment, and have it done by the end of the week?"

For a long time a bunch of clients my company built products for wouldn’t pay the cost of standing up a test environment for them, so for those clients we actually did our dev work in production.
My work hired an amazing front end guy. After a year of hard work and OKs by the higher ups they prepped to release his reworked front end. It was beautiful, simple, effective, responsive, and just generally perfect.
The higher ups went "actually... This is nice, but what if we started from scratch and tried THIS instead?"
This is the story of why my company no longer has a front end developer.
