Iíve been in a similar situation at a restaurant in which two balloons ended up popping, but I was grateful that my partner knew what was going on so she didnít have to ask. Still, not a fun situation overall. :/

b0f0s0f, Wife is aware I had a phobia & trying very hard to get over it so when a situation like last week occurs she leaves me to fight it my own way. If she mentions anything about balloons she feels she is torturing me. She's proud that I am fighting the dislike of kids with balloons & not running away.

Being partially phobic, I just leave. People and balloons have never been a good mix for me.

Kids' balloons do not mean anything for me, it's a different world. Maybe it makes me a bit envy because in my childhood I was not allowed to pop my balloons. So I can enjoy the sight and lought on them.

Of course, anyone should enjoy their balloons as they like. Just as I enjoy doing things my way with my loons, too. But for me it's pretty scary to have other people in control of any balloons around me, even more so kids! They always end up popping them. I avoid McDonalds' or events with balloons at times for that reason, or if I do want to go in I mentally prepare myself for the inevitable. It's still very uncomfortable but, live and let live. I'm happy for them that they're having fun.

I rarely get to see anyone interacting with balloons. There are two times I remember where in each case a guy was playing with them whilst working, one was doing this charity thing and another just a regular employee.

Don't think I've ever seen kids playing with balloons, except from that youtube channel mmmike.

I do think it's fun to see kids playing with balloons, even trying to burst them, though I don't actually like balloon bursting myself. But I've always found something about kids bursting balloons to be fun.

I'd rather not go near children, especially when it comes to balloons. I try to avoid it when it's present.

I don't really mind that much. If they pop, the noise can startle me, but it's in a non-sexual context and doesn't have the same connotation as my own balloon play does.
