       I gave him what was coming to him.

 

       If someone does something evil then that same person has evil coming to him since he or she inflicted it upon someone else. This is the logic behind " getting what is coming to you".

 

         Ex: John has been stealing cars for years. He does this because he wants to buy a yacht  http://www.magnumsbutlers.com/yacht.htm with the money he makes from the cars he steals.

         He finally purchased his yacht yesterday and to his surprise this morning someone stole the yacht.

         He thinks he has bad luck but I think he had it coming to him.
