Can't log into gmail account

I'm at the library while I'm getting a used iPhone upgraded but can't log in to gmail. The password I thought I had doesn't work. Try my name or phone number or recovery email doesn't work. What next?

Well, I tried the password I thought was correct one last time and I got in.

Edit: Well crap. I can't get my email to open. I don't even see a link to get there.

It means it's a mystery why it didn't work the first time. But it worked eventually so that's good.

I finally got it open. I think I went to gmail.com. Anyway, it's the first time I've been there not on my iPhone 4S. What an unsightly confusing layout that is.

Tip;
If this was at a public computer that does not "refresh/erase" itself between users, clear cache, delete cookies, etc before signing in...
Having multiple sign-ins to Google accounts during a day can make signing in to a new account go all screwy, much like your symptoms.

Of course, I'm a little leery of signing in to a public computer at ALL with my credentials.
This would be a good time to change your password, update your recovery information, and turn on 2-factor-annoyance.
