Angry help with plug issue a.s.a.p

I have a problem with my 99 dodge ram, there is a metal sleeve that is around the spark plug, it is not he insulating part of the wire. The sleeves are frozen in place and it seems they are so tight to the hex of the plug that the socket cannot get around the plug hex.
I did use a flat screwdriver to try and see if there was junk down at the bottom, I did loosen a bunch of junk and used my compressor to blow it out but still not enough to get the socket on the plug

Try a thinner walled socket.

I have no idea where the idiot who invented those things went to school, but their parents got ripped off. That being said, I sharpened a socket and beat it onto the plug, pushing the tin out of the way. NOT a six point, it won't align... I was luckier, tho, my nightmare plug was the front one on the passenger side... Good luck!!!
