    English phrase "teach you a lesson"

    あんたなんかクラッシュでもして 一度いたい目にあえばいいんだ
    Have a crash for once. That will teach you a lesson.

    Is this the right translation?

    痛い目 = to have a horrible experience (Japanese idiom)
    痛い目に合え = you should be taught a lesson?

    I would change will to would: That would teach you a lesson. edit: (would だと 「~だろう」のニュアンスがでる。ENG>JP translation for "teach someone a lesson": 焼きをいれる、かわいがる、わからせてやる. I think it is fine to use the phrase in your sentence.)
