Hanging curtains on a plaster wall with plastic anchors.

Please help me figure out how to hang these curtains before I lose my mind. All I need to do (in theory) is drill a hole in plaster and stick a plastic anchor in it.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong here. It said use a 3/16" drill bit. I did. The anchor wouldn't go in more than half way. I tried tapping it in with a hammer and the plastic just got flattened. I tried wiggling it. I tried screwing it. Noting will make these anchors go in past the halfway mark. I know the hole is deep enough. I tried wiggling the drill bit while I was drilling. No dice.
This seems like it should be something anyone can do! I'm irrationally angry! So much that I'm over-punctuating!!
