I never used a grater before

OK, I'm 66, been cooking all my adult life and never used a small grater before. I've always diced and minced with a knife.
Well, I bought one last week http://www.walmart.com/ip/Oneida-Hand... and grated a small piece of ginger. (About the size of a large marble.) Nothing came out. The whole piece of ginger was stuck in the grater. I beat it on the counter but nothing fell out. It took me a half an hour with a tooth pick to remove it all. I'll never grate ginger again!
Questions are, How do you get the food freed from a small grater???
What am I doing wrong?

Thank you,
Rick
