    Smile you didn't meet someone else's expectations

    Have you ever gotten in trouble because you didn't meet someone else's expectations?



    I suspect that the underlined part can be replaced with "measure/live up to someone else's expectations" without making a change semantically. Your comment? Thanks.

    "live up to" and "measure up to" certainly fits as a direct replacement for "meet".
