GeneralNot sure I can ever trust Ubuntu again: im an idiot Pin

Today, I logged into my laptop running Ubuntu 18.04.4 with no problem.
Then I stepped away and the screen locked and after that I couldn't successfully log in again.
I checked caps lock, etc and it is none of that.
I've looked up solutions and there does seem to be a problem with it not accepting your password.
I think it may have an old password as root so I can't get into root either.
I am effectively locked out of my Ubuntu laptop and I'm typing this from a Ubuntu desktop and wondering if this will happen in the future.
There are many solutions online and they all require logging in as root or getting logged in at the command line but Ubuntu won't allow me to log in at all on that laptop.
I guess it is a brick until I wipe it.
How could I ever trust Ubuntu again??? Unsure | :~ WTF | :WTF: Confused | :confused: Sigh | :sigh:
EDIT
I am an idiot. Somehow I've been typing my password for 2 weeks without actually knowing my password!!! URGH!!!! Blush | :O Blush | :O Blush | :O
I finally figured out the one character I typed improperly. OY!!!!
I'm so stupid. Confused | :confused: Confused | :confused:
