This is the Blackberry logo. It doesn't tell you what type of USB you have, though. It does say that you have a Blackberry cable.
I still think that the charger has the wrong USB tip on it. It should be Mini USB. You're describing something long and thin, which sounds like a Micro USB connector like this one:
The Mini and Micro look very similar, but aren't. Bimmerdood's photo from Mobileburn.com doesn't look like a Mini USB on the right. Maybe it is, but doesn't look to me like the one above. You should be using a USB Mini connector.
Are the small connectors on your two cables the same on (1) your wall charger and (2) the PC to Blackberry cable? Is one a Mini USB connector and one a Micro connector?
Anyway, as someone else suggested, maybe you should take some photos of your cables and post them so we can see what you're describing. It should be pretty straightforward to connect and charge up. No tears needed.
