Put on hold (short video)

The phrase of the day is: "put on hold"

This expression is probably from the term used in the past when someone making a telephone call waited for the operator to connect them.
  • if you put something on hold, you decide not to do it or deal with it until a later time
    [ --- We'll have to put the project on hold until we get some more money. --- ]
  • to put someone or someone's telephone call on an electronic hold
    [ --- I am going to have to put your call on hold. --- ]
