    Unhappy what is the meaning of this sentence?

    I am not a native English speaker. I was in a team meeting last time, I was quiet in the meeting, and I caught cold so I was coughing a few times.. after the meeting, my team leader said something like this to me " You are on seat( or sit / sick) wild !" I believe he was just joking.. but I don't quite understand the meaning... what could it mean?? Thanks...

    Hi, Billiu,

    As you have written it, I do not understand either. What kind of team is it? A sports team?

    The only guess I have with the clues you have given would be:

    "You are on the seat for a while." That is to say, you are sick, so you will not be able to play. So, you will be on your seat (sitting) for a while (a period of time) until you are better.

    Could that have been it?

    You'll be on-site now?

    You'll be on sick leave now or for a while?

    Thanks for responses. I am a software developer, was in a project meeting..

    I believe I did catch every word my bossed said, but just don't know the exact meaning.. just like some English idioms to non-native speakers..
