the inspector was confused when she saw not the familiar property owner she had met before, but a different group o’ men standing round, drinking bottles. as she neared, most o’ them looked up @ her with a glare. the inspector frowned with a chill. she had seen this scenario many times.

but just to be sure, she asked the men, ’scuse me, sirs, ¿but do you know if the property owner is on the premises?.

while most o’ the men looked ’way with funny faces, the man in the middle looked straight into the inspector’s eyes & said, you’re looking @ him.

you’re not the owner who was here before.

& to that, with a polite smile, the “current owner” said, he’s been replaced.
