Love this She sounds awesome! I wonder how the new employees felt having to do b2ps.

That reminds me of one more! When I was a kid, I was in a shop which gave out balloons and saw this employee being taken to the helium tank which was out back but was able to be seen from the shop floor.

I think he was new and was his first time tasked with the balloon inflating as he fumbled about for a while with the machine and then putting the balloon on it. I was able to watch him as he inflated a couple. Not sure what happened but after a few he didn't seem to stop quick enough and blew one right to bursting He looked a bit taken a back.

hown over to the helium tank in the corner and
