Default Ever been caught?
Had a bit of a weird situation this week whereupon I left worked and switched on my phone to find a text from the housemate with words to the effect of "Had to go in your room, sorry, Max (gerbil) escaped."

Crap.

I really wouldn't mind - it's only me and him in the house, there are no locks and I trust him completely. It's just the inflatables. Normally hidden away in the corner under my bed... Which, when I get in I find are now on top of it (along with a few other more normal things)... Damn, this might be awkward.

He gets home later that night, we have a small conversation about the escapee rodent (now safely home himself) and thankfully nothing more is mentioned, but he must have thought something was a little strange about it...

Fortunately he only found the ones that were out and so there were only three but it got me wondering if any of you guys have had similar experiences. Ever been caught? Or had your stashes discovered? Was anything said about it?

Mum always found my stash and threw the lot out when I was a kid. I used to buy a limited amount of balloons with my lawn mowing money, I used to enjoy them when I was home alone but mum would regularly throw what she thought to be rubbish away, including some nice balloons. No matter how hard I tried to hide them, she went through the place like a fine-toothed comb.

Adulthood has its advantages.

I'm still a teenager and living at home, which is why I am unable to own many large inflatables, and I can only blow up my 48" beach ball either very late at night when everyone's asleep or when home alone (which is a rare situation), but thankfully I've never been caught.

Not "caught" as such, but had a few close shaves. The fear of being caught inflagrente delicto is part of the turn on for me I suppose. Also, I created a short vid for the wife blowing up a huge red heart, (tasteful I thought.. it appeared slowly swelling out of right field (the HEART dear reader.. the heart)which didnt impress her at all. So I guess she's not "into" this. *sigh*

In a weird sort of way I don't believe in "coming out" either.. in the way I don't like anyone being overtly sexual (hetero or homo), this is a private thing for me... have shared it with an understanding g/f many moons ago. but don't feel need to now. SO no I'll not be joining any "Balloon Pride" marches soon.

I feel for ya man. I hope it wasn't too awkward.

Touch wood, I haven't been caught in the act. My parents had the good sense generally to leave me alone if I was in my room, which was definitely for the best.

I've never been "caught," but never really bothered about it as I do a lot of robotics work and use the excuse that the balloons are for a blimp I'm working on (and have been "working on" for the past several months :P ) which provides a perfect way to get some nice, large GL series balloons. I'm sure my parents thought it strange sometimes, when I'll leave up to 6 balloons inflated at a time, but they've never asked, so I'm honestly not sure if they get it or not.

Usually if we have people coming to our house I'll deflate and hide the balloons just in case, but no one really just enters my room without asking me first.

as stated earlier growing up I had stashes discovered..always awkward.

then when my step sister found out I enjoyed playing with them and riding them down, she poked an insane amount of holes in them so they'd lose air extremely quickly. it was never enjoyable.

I had a large balloon blown up in my shorts one time when my sister walked into the room. I thought I was alone, to this day I have no idea where she came from. She was like "what the hell is going on?" And left the room. Never mentioned it again.

Years later just after college, I had a bunch of tuftex 24" balloon blown up and got called into work suddenly. I put them in my closet as quickly as I could and left. I shut my door, and when I got back my door was open and a bunch of mail was on my bed. All the balloons were very visible. Roommate never mentioned it.

Same roommate opened my door one time and saw two 40" balloons on my bed, and just said "you got some big balloons there" and shut my door. I don't think he knows but goodness he HAS to think something is up...right?

That's really awkward. Recently, I was upstairs in my house, and thought I was home alone. There's a landing area at the top of the stairs where I have a tv and some gaming systems set up. I was sitting in a chair with the staircase right behind me (the chair back was agains a railing bordering the stairs). I was blowing up a balloon and watching balloon porn on my phone when I felt a hand on my head.... I immediately turned of my phone and turned around.

My dad had reached up and touched my head as he walked up the stairs, and (I'm pretty sure) didn't see the porn, but the overinflated, 16" punchball could not be hidden. I told him I had just found it in my closet when I was cleaning it out and was bored. I think he believed me....... Think....
