I've learned that the hard way so I built a script to connect to the ticketing system to push any changes planned for later than 4 pm or on a Friday to 9 am the following day or Monday morning, as appropriate. I ran a 10,000+ machine dev/test Datacenter so no one actually did anything outside of work hours.
