How to...

Mom telling her daughter what to ask me: ask her where the how to section is?
Girl: Where's the how to section?
Me: Can you be more specific?

Mom: Telling the girl to ask how to build.
Girl: Where's the how to build section?
Me: What are you trying to build?

Mom: Telling the girl-- don't they have a section on how to build airplanes?
Me: Thinking-- paper airplanes? origami?
Girl: How to build ____ (something unintelligible)
Me: How to build what?
Girl: How to build gun control.

Me: Oh, you want books on gun control?
Girl: Yes.
Me: We have some over here.

ERQ (end of reference question)

I'm ALWAYS amazed at how many people don't know "how to" ask for what they are actually looking for - why is that??
