You deserve it!

> 日常的会话中也常常用到一句“You deserve it!”,这句话是说这是“你应得的”,就是“活该、
> 自作自受”的意思。比如有人老爱脚踏两条船,结果到头来同时被两个女人给甩了,这种人
> 你就可以对他说 You deserve it.

Most of the time I hear people say "You deserve it!" in a positive way, although the negative usage is also heard:

"You're all hardworking people. At the time our company is coming to the end of an unprecedented profitable year, you all will receive an unprecedented bonus, because you all deserve it!"
