I have a question about the phrase "make up for".
You can make up for the loss, the delay or someone's mistake, right? I used to think you can also "make (this/it) up for someone", meaning that you will do something nice to that person because you feel obligated for your not-so-nice conduct prior to this conversation.
ex) Hey, I'm sorry I'm late. I will totally make this up for you.
Since I can't seem to find a valid example for this usage, I noticed that I might have picked up this phrase mistakenly.
