I’ve recently come across this sentence:
" In the middle of a pandemic when grounds are empty. Unless he’s up for a big pay cut. "
My problem is with the meaning of “grounds” there, I’ve never seen people use it that way, and I looked it up on a few web dictionaries and they don’t seem to feature that meaning of grounds. Is it an expression or something? I figure it means something like “wallets” or “pockets”, but I can’t seem to understand why.
Anyone have more information about that use?
