If you're feeling exhausted from putting in that effort to figure it out, then I understand. If you're worried about my time, then don't sweat it, it's good for me to experience the difficulty users experience when I don't get things right.
Additionally, SiB is a way of approaching problem solving. If you develop the habit of using it, it's deeply effective and figuring out how to explore problems with SiB is good for your brain. Given that, it's best to establish the habit of using it to experiment as early as possible. Otherwise, you get it installed later, but you've developed a habit of irb or pry or running the tests. Then you don't take advantage of a situation where SiB would be very valuable.
As an example of why getting in the habit of using SiB is useful for your brain, it requires you to see that a hash in the middle of a rails controller, whose keys are user names and values are counts of something or other pulled out of the database... that's still just a hash, and you can experiment on a hash
