"Keep your seat warm" nghĩa là gì?

"Keep one's seat/ something warm" có nghĩa là giữ vị trí hoặc đảm nhận trách nhiệm của ai đó khi họ vắng mặt. 

Ví dụ 
According to insiders (người trong cuộc), Sonia Gandhi is not very happy that son Rahul Gandhi is adamant (kiên quyết) on quitting. Did she not keep the seat warm for her son from 1998 and was jubilant (vui sướng) when she handed over the baton (trao quyền lãnh đạo) to him in December 2017? 

First, he can pick up (chọn) anyone of his cronies (bạn thân) to keep the seat warm for him. But he may then also run the risk of driving the organisation (tổ chức) further into the cesspool (hố phân), blighting (ảnh hưởng) the prospects (tương lai) of his ascension (phát triển) to power. 

If the Wizards truly want to compete (thi đấu) next year, they'll need a point guard (người chỉ dẫn) to at least keep the seat warm while Wall recovers (phục hồi). Beal has shown he can be an effective playmaker (cầu thủ chơi hiệu quả), but asking him to handle the ball every time up the floor for 82 games seems a bit much.
