I get some meeting invites that I’m pretty sure could be emails. Usually these are the sort where an hour is requested and they turn out to just take 5 minutes because I can answer the question pretty quickly.
The thing is I usually don’t know the answer before the meeting happens. The person asks me a question and then I Google it on the spot and then I repeat what I see on Google. I can often tell just from the invite message that it’s gonna go this way.
What’s the most polite way to handle this?
