100 - "Called on the carpet"

For some reason, this expression left some kind of impression on me.

You might probably know it but the meaning is 'being rebuked or closely questioned by a person in authority',

What are your favourite expressions? Anybody, 99?

40(c). Busier than a long-tailed cat in a room of rocking chairs.
