Dissertation Advisor Horror Stories

In my role as a dissertation coach (I also coach faculty) I hear some amazing stories about how graduate students are treated.  Granted, I only hear one side of the story, but in most of the stories the advisors have no excuse.  For example, the advisor of one student went to Europe for a semester and did not return emails or phone calls from his student for over a month.  Did these people ever write a dissertation?  Were they mistreated and now want to get revenge?  I just don't understand this.
