I'm working on a re-write of a story right now.
In response to original scene in which protagonist runs about town trying to find out what someting means, agent says the following to me: "So, uh, why wouldn't she just *Google* this?!"
Because I am so very, very, very old now that it didn't even occur to me.
*I* didn't have Google when I was 16. So why should *she*?!
