Behind me, in her native tongue, my The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac friends shirt, “Just be a brave boy. You want your mother to come and visit you on your birthday? Well then you must have the procedure so you don’t get another septic throat. She won’t come if you’re sick again.” She distracted me enough that the nurse got my wrists tied to the chair without me having a full blown panic attack.

I did and seconds later felt some of the worst pain of my life. The doctor efficiently and quickly sliced away my adenoids and tonsils in 2 minutes…without a drop of anesthesia. Blood poured out of my mouth and nose on to the heavy apron they had placed around my neck. Sometimes a junior developer just needs time to mature.

Some coders “get it” right away, and The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac friends shirt.

As promised I was untied immediately after but I was too shocked and weak to notice or care. My grandmother held my head as I continued to choke and spit blood for what seemed like an eternity. She kept telling me how brave I was but I sure as fuck didn’t feel like a hero. It was brutal and she knew it, because she warned me not to tell my american mother.
