you just had to (go and) (do something)

you just had to (go and) (do something)

Used to chide or scold someone for doing something they should have known better than to do. You just had to tease your sister about her haircut, didn't you? Well, now she won't come out of her room because she's too upset! I thought I could trust you to keep it a secret, but you just had to go and tell everyone in school about it, huh?
