如果你 hold the fort 那就是说临时代管处理事物。
- When Michael, the boss, went on holiday, he asked me to hold the fort at our company.
- I'm just going out to the shops for 20 minutes, can you hold the fort?
值得注意的是，另一个包含 fort 一词的短语是 to be like Fort Knox 像诺克斯堡，意思是一栋楼房或一个地方保护严密，出入严格。
- My office is like Fort Knox. You need to bring your ID or they won't let you in.
