I just had a great time reading this fine article on Digital Survivors, the author just imaging what the brief would look like if clients were talking to architects like they do to designers. Here is a glimpse of the article, click here to read more.
Please design and build me a house. I am not quite sure of what I need, so you should use your discretion. My house should have somewhere between two and forty-five bedrooms.

Also, bring me the cost breakdown for each configuration so that I can arbitrarily pick one.
This article made me think of this funny video on client-vendor relationship.
