    Default make a bit aof a show

    "I suspect the delay is because they just want to keep you huddled here, in front of the screen, ineffectual. If there's no contact by about ten o'clock you go about your business as usual. Make a bit of show about going to the office."

    Two guys are waiting for kidnappers' contact, but nothing happened. So one of the guys tells the other to go to office and "make a bit of show."
    Not so sure what does this mean, please help~

    (NOT a teacher) To do something in a way that attracts the attention of anyone who may be watching. And to convince anyone who may be watching that you are really doing whatever you seem to be doing.
