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