    Default Fill the vacancy

    Please fill the vacancy:
    He fell on his seat last year and [ ] a lot of money.

    And what does "fall on one's seat" mean?

    most likely the 'seat of his pants', his butt

    He must have had a bad fall and his rear end must hurt a lot. So.....my educated guess is that he lost time off work and therefore lost some of his wages too? (climbing a ladder perhaps?)

    Please fill in the blank space/ complete the sentence.
