I'm working in a team of 8 consultants just like me. I'm the youngest member of the team and also the one with the least experience (on resume at least). But 4 of the 8 members of the team will often come and ask me questions like:
- Do you know if W3C allows the font tag in HTML5?
- Do we have this CSS class in our stylesheets?
- Do you know what version of IE is the most popular.
All of those questions can be answered by a simple Google (or find) search. Those developers have more than 10 years of experience and some do more than a 100k a year with that job.
How can I politely tell them to stop bothering me with simple questions where the answers can be found easily on Google or with a simple Find command?
I tried to ask "Did you search it?" and the answer is always: I didn't find anything.
