Transients, scum, the- no, he wouldn't swear, not like they had at him.
Then suddenly he stands to attention. Decision made. In his mind he salutes his decision, as if receiving an order. He'd carry it out smartly, to the best of his considerable ability.
He'd rent a chainsaw. And ear protectors. Noise upset him. Definitely: ear protectors.
