This question already has an answer here:
I recently received an email which had a sentence:
"Let us know if you would rather we have the meeting next week with just Alisa and Bob."
This grammar ("you would rather we have") looks weird to me. I would just say "Let us know if you would rather like us to have a meeting...". Yet the person who wrote is a native speaker and insisted that people actually use it all the time. Can anyone explain how to use it and give more examples?
