Student or Learner
I heard this expression on a movie and I would like to know what it means.
In the context that I heard it, it seemed to mean "do not move until I come back".
There are tens of entries for it on BMC, though, and I am not sure that all of them have the same meaning:
"He argued that consultants were tending to stay put by the mid-1980s because of the much higher start-up....
" Mr Povah should stay put and control the business, and deal with sales contracts ...".
Could you help, please?
I also would like to know if this is a colloquial and polite expression that can be used fearlessly.
