    put him on the spot

    Hello,

    Could you please explain me the meaning of the underlined expression?

    "You put him on the spot, confronted him, pushed him"

    Note that there is no reason to write a new post to say "Thank you" to anyone. Simply click on the "Thank" button which appears in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves time for everyone.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
