Punts if it isn't close enough for a field goal attempt or it goes for the 1st down typically if they are in the opponents side of the field but too far for a field goal attempt.

How the saying goes that the third time is a charm?

This is strictly a piece of folklore with no basis in fact, but sometimes people like to think that if they try something twice unsuccessfully, they are likely to make it work, or to succeed, on their third attempt, because three is somehow a magic number. Sometimes people do succeed on their third attempt, of course, but it's not because the third time is a charm, it just works out that way sometimes. At other times people may succeed on their first attempt, or their second attempt, or their fifthieth attempt, or they may never succeed. It depends what they are trying to do, and how good they are at doing it.
