Be nice to your mother

Your mother in the village is using an old Nokia with a torchlight and broken screen and rubber band holding the battery and the phone together.
And your girlfriend has changed phones ten times this year. Right now she is using Galaxy Note4, and you bought her an iPhone 6 this Valentine's all from your account savings.
And you sit there singing :
Sweet Mother I will never forget you for this suffering way you suffered for me!
The thunder that will strike you is still
doing press ups.
