Idiom: Leave someone holding the bag

Posted by Jacqueline on March 26, 2003

I'm usually pretty good with idioms but this one has me and everyone I know stumped. Please help by telling me just what the heck this means. Part of my assignment involves drawing a picture to represent this idiom. Please offer up some creative ideas for that also. As usual, my friends all got easy idioms and I ended up with the ridiculous one.
