I'm a little confused. With traffic, a general only takes 2 hours away from your day. It's not an insignificant amount of time, but I wouldn't consider them overly cumbersome.
Are these pitch meetings?
Or are you going home after general meetings and generating takes based on ideas that the producers tossed out? In which case, I would just stop taking the bait unless the idea is really, really, really, really exciting.
