HOT-1: meaning and examples

Good morning everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend.

Now that it's summer, I thought it might be interesting to look at some expressions with the word hot, since in summer the weather is usually hot.

Today's expression is: to be in hot water or to get into hot water

Meaning: to be in trouble or to get into trouble.

Example 1:
Yesterday Daniel forgot to call the client to tell him that the order would be late. The boss is furious with him. Daniel is in hot water.

Example 2:
Anna. If you continue to lie to me, you're going to get into hot water. Please just tell the truth.
