That's part of the problem. You let yourself get frustrated and
confused, and you still have no idea what you're doing. Ask sooner, if
you have to; or develop the discipline to keep track of what you do
and what happens. But regardless of what actually happens, "it didn't
work" is not a helpful thing to say.

Trust me, making it easier for us will make everything easier for you
too. Even if we were to never answer a single question of yours ever
again, learning to read error messages will benefit you more than you
can imagine.
