I get this response all the time especially at work.
This is your typical answer from someone who doesn’t know the answer to your question. They give you this answer instead of being honest. It happens me a lot during meetings at work when someone doesn’t want to reveal they don’t know shit. They give you this answer to cover up their lack knowledge, but the thing is everyone can read between the lines.
They are some who make up a bullshit answers like saying the sky is blue when you asked them what state is Los Angeles located in. The best answer would be “I don’t know, but I’ll find out.”
