✔ A slap on the wrist

================

 

■ Meaning:

If someone gives you a slap on the wrist, they give you a mild punishment for making a mistake or doing something wrong.

■ For example:

  • The tribunal didn’t think it was a serious offence, so they just gave him a slap on the wrist. All he got was a warning.
  • Some of our players got a slap on the wrist for getting to the training session late. The coach warned them not to be late again and then made them do twenty push-ups.
