129 An insubordinate young lad 不听话的小伙子

A man from the National Institute of Trades was sent to inspect the condition of an installment of duplexes on the upper east side of town.

国家贸易协会的一个人被派去检查城镇东部靠北的复式结构建筑安装的情况。

His instinct told him that he might come across some very shady characters during his visit, so with him he took an instrument of precaution, namely a baseball bat, which he thought may come in handy to instil fear into any of the locals if they were to instigate any confrontation with him. He also brought with him his young apprentice whom he wished to inspire, and who would be instrumental in carrying out the task at hand.

他的直觉告诉他在访问中可能会遇到一些名声非常不好的人,所以,他随身带了防范工具,就是一根棒球棒,他想,如果当地人要煽动任何针对他的面对面的对抗,也许可以用它来给他们注入一些恐惧感。 他也带上了 的年轻的学徒,希望给他灵感,他会对完成手头的任务有帮助。

The orders he received from the institution were to instruct the young lad extremely firmly, as his sttitude in the past had been somewhat insubordinate, upon arriving at the scene however, he realised that he was in dire need of inspiration himself. They had a ton of work cut out for them.

他从协会得到的命令是需要非常严格地训导小伙子,因为他以前的态度有些不听话。然而,到达现场的时候,他意识到他自己极其需要灵感。他们有一大堆工作要做。

They would need to install new airconditioning and insulation, new light fixtures and so on. The tradesman decided they would have to get started immediately, and although his words were very instructive, the apprentice was still young and insolent, and displayed an extremely insular attitude, this, the tradesman felt was insufferable, but not only he as it turns out.

他们需要安装新的空调和隔热材料、新的照明设施固定装置等等。工匠决定他们应该立即动手。尽管他的话很有教益,但是学徒还年轻,并且傲慢无礼,表现出一种偏狭的态度。工匠觉得这是难以忍受的,结果发现别人也有同感。

Suddenly, the two were confronted by a group of local hoodlums who saw the apprentice’s behaviour as an insult to their way of life. Before the tradesman even had time to reach for his bat, the boy was being beaten to a bloody pulp. The effects were instantaneous and devastating.

突然,他们俩人碰到一群当地的流氓,他们认为学徒的行为是对他们的生活方式的侮辱。他还没来得及拿他的棒子,男孩已经被达成血淋淋的肉浆了,后果是瞬间产生的,并且是破坏性的。

He now has brain damage and unfortunately proceedings had to be instituted to institutionalize him.

现在,他的大脑受伤了,不幸的是,必须开始提起诉讼以便让社会福利机构把他收容起来。
