The bottom line, though, is that it sounds like this should NOT be happening, correct? This goes back to what BernhardF said -- "the af is, under most circumstances, fast and accurate so you should at least get one shot even when using focus mode." That's kind of what I was hoping for and expecting. So, for sure, it's frustrating when I press down the shutter and nothing happens!

From what you've told us, it's likely that things are working as designed.  I'd say the real bottom line is that you need to spend some time learning about your camera and how to configure its many options to suit the way you want to shoot.

One of the many guide books to the D750 would be a great place to start - I can recommend this one, for example:
