Got a minute?

'Got a minute?' is a polite way for someone to ask you if you have time right now to listen to something they want to say. Interestingly, whatever they have to say usually takes much longer to say than a minute, which is why the person asking this question asks. The listener is also aware, and answers with, at minimum, a 5 minute conversation, in mind.

-Got a minute?
-Sure, what's up?

-Got a minute?
-Actually, I'm on my way out the door. Can we talk after my meeting?
