Not my first, but definitely my most profitable. We had a customer who was always complaining about performance. We built some custom code that included a sleep statement. When the inevitable complaint cane in we charged him a days work to reduce the time if the sleep function. In our defence the scope of the project had changed several times and we were already many many days over budget on the original agreed quote.
