Helloooo everybody out there,

How are you all doing?

Welcome back yet again to all my dear English learners in today’s chapter of our “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you’ll learn something new every day with context and examples, and so will you today.

So without any further ado, let’s get down to the business and see today’s context:


John: Hey Steve, how are you doing?

Steve: I am doing well. How are you?

John: Not bad. By the way, did you come to know that the boss fired Josh today?

Steve: Oh my god! But why did he fire him? He was so good at managing accounts and all. All colleagues have appreciated him for his punctuality.

John: I know, but he was secretly involved in illegal activities and used to transfer a major portion of the company’s money to his people.

Steve: Oh my god! I just can’t believe it. But if it’s true, I think the boss served him right!

John: Yeah, I agree. He was one of the most trusted employees in the entire office. He should have at least thought once about the company before doing anything like this.

Steve: You know what? It even stirred up trouble for all of us as we have to be more cautious before recruiting any new employees.

John: I agree, but there is nothing we can do about our mistake of recruiting him in the past.

Steve: Yeah!

Vocabulary to Acquire Today

To serve someone right
Meaning- To serve as an appropriate punishment for someone.
Example- They punished all students who were involved in fights yesterday. Serves them right!

Stir up trouble
Meaning- To cause trouble.
Example- Rohan stirred up the trouble of his colleagues by reminding the class teacher about the test that she had promised a day ago.

I hope you would have faced scenarios like the one in the above context where people stirred up trouble and when the authority came to know about it, they punished them.

Don’t you think it served them right???

I hope today’s lesson added some new vocabulary to your arsenal of active vocabulary which will be definitely useful in your daily life.

Make sure you read this article thoroughly and practice it with your own examples so as they become your second nature.

See you tomorrow with some new topic and vocabulary.

Till then keep learning and improving.

Take care and?
