Using the Yellow Pages
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "What's wrong?" Bill asked his friend Sue. He noticed she looked a little frazzled.
 
2     "My car broke down," Sue said. "I had to run to catch the bus to work."
 
3     "That's too bad," Bill said. "What are you going to do?"
 
4     "I need to find someone to fix it. Do you know a good mechanic?" asked Sue.
 
5     "I don't even have a car. I take the bus every day. But I can help you look for a mechanic in the phone book."
 
6     "Thanks, that would be great." She got the phone book out of her desk drawer. "I wouldn't know where to begin."
 
7     "Let's look in the yellow pages," Bill said.
 
8     "Why the yellow pages?" asked Sue.
 
9     "The yellow pages are a list of businesses that sell things or perform services. Since car repair is a service, you should look there," Bill told her.
 
10     "I usually only use the white pages," said Sue.
 
11     "That's all right if you know the name of the person you want to help you. But if you don't know a specific person, you need to look for a business that can help you. They are listed in the yellow pages," Bill explained.
 
12     They turned to the back of the phone book. They found the yellow pages.
