The other weekend I allowed one of the nephews to have a look at my new mobile phone. The next morning I was rudely awoken by the alarm on the phone going off at 6am; his idea of a joke. The nephew should (but probably won't) be saying sorry to Auntie Kerry for his evil deeds. His long-suffering mother should (and probably will) express regret for having spawned such a child. That's the difference.
