What would be your reaction as you heard the first woosh of air? I'm asking this as although I'm a popper, people should respect other people, as being a previous phobic myself the experience described above can be like torture wondering if the person will manage to untie the balloon.
This is almost always someone trying to inhale helium to talk funny, or getting rid of a balloon they are too scared to pop, even with a pin.

That hasn't happened to me since I don't go out in public very often, let alone when there are balloons involved (I just know they're probably going to be popped so I stay away), I'm a serious introvert and prefer to keep to myself, so I don't go to social gatherings or anything involving balloons (not that I get invited to parties and such anyway).

The idea does freak me out a little.

I cover my ears because of the sharp pops. Especially the big ones.

I was a nervous child going to a party with friends, family, etc. I despise having my friends trying to stomp on balloons. The worse part is they pop it in your ears.
