I hate the chipping irons....to me it's like someone saying "I couldn't figure out how to chip right so I bought a club that does it for me."
Not sure if this counts, but my buddy has a serious slicing problem.  He hits the ball off the tee and it sails to the right.  He goes over to where he hit it [near a green] and asks the guy over there, "Did you see a ball this way?".  They find it in the cup!  D'oh!
Someone who takes a lot of time before their shot and then they shank it.  You find out this is their game, they suck but they prepare like they're a scratch golfer.
I am tempted to do the same thing, I hit well with a 5 iron when I place it on a tee but when it's on the ground I sometimes duff the ball.  I have to get to the point where I'm not duffing the ball before I ignore my driver all together.
I've been playing for about 3 years now.  The first couple of years I played maybe 12 times, this past year I've been playing as often as I can, maybe 14 or 16 times so far this year.  I got an unlimited range pass at my local golf course and made the decision to work almost exclusively on my short game.  So I spent hours and hours with a wedge in my hand, then over to the practice green to putt for hours and hours.  You get the idea.   I play my 2 buddies from work...
  I think you're right Walt!
This is the same guy that can hit a golf ball 200+ yards with a putter, no joke.
    Yeah I think 20' may have been too short of a distance.  I probably should have said 10 or 15 feet from the fringe.  I guess what I was getting at is, do people try to "putt" the ball onto the green with an iron or hybrid or do they pitch it on hoping to drop it near the pin.  
LOL I guess I should have clarified that you're not ;)
I found this video that kind of shows you what I was referring to in case my written description wasn't clear.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQqPcXAmpAc&feature=youtu.be&t=2m20s
