“It’s your funeral”

When you tell someone that it’s his funeral, what you mean is that if he does something, he has to suffer the consequences.

“Go ahead, make the presentation without really preparing for it. It’s your funeral.” * “I’m told there are many crocodiles in this part of the river. But if you insist on swimming, I won’t stop you. It’s your funeral.”
