Not sure - it was at a drive-thru and she did it out of sight of the window. I didn't hear anything (like a pump whirring), but it was quite noisy anyway, so not sure if I would have heard it anyway.

Might be able to tell if I ever find the bits of the balloon - you can usually tell if it has been damp from being mouth inflated.

She even asked if it was big enough, I was quite tempted to say no.
Hi,
My account won't let me see that pictrure, could this be fixed?
Thanks

I once pump popped a party city 24" after the neck ripped off while I was stretching it. It popped at around 45 inches

I hosted a booth at a corporate event/trade show. We had a bunch of trinkets to give out, balloons among them. This thread popped into my head as I was helping to decorate and I aimed to over inflate the helium balloons by as much as I could without bursting them. I definitely made my colleague nervous!

But the most fun was during the actual event. Most of the pile of balloons we had went untouched but occasionally someone would grab one or a handful of them. Finally a pretty cute guy came up and kind of hesitated before grabbing one. I gave him a little wink and said "you want me to blow that for you hon?" He declined politely before I responded, "Aw, that's too bad. I can get them really big!" He looked at me skeptically for a second before he handed it back to me. "Well, if you really want to I guess."

I spent the next minute or so blowing it up by mouth, trying to get it as big as I could, deep breath after deep breath. As the neck began to form the gentleman plugged his ears, preparing for the inevitable pop. I pulled the balloon from my lips , gave him another flirty wink and told him not to worry, I knew what I was doing. I then put the balloon back to my lips and put another three breaths into the expanding orb (all the while thinking, please let me be right and don't let this sucker pop!). Finally, when it was rock hard and even I was scared it would burst, I deflated it a little so I could work the neck and handed him one of the most over inflated balloons I'd ever created (without the intention of blowing to pop).

I had a few other similar interactions where I blew up balloons for people, but nothing quite so dramatic.

Yeah, not to be too full of myself, but I may have added to the looner ranks that day.

Pretty much all my balloons i play with are over inflated as i am a semi/popper popper. But i happen to be only 5'8" & weigh less than 130 pounds so most my balloons i get rough with can usually take the punishment...& believe me i put em through hell... i love my TT-17s as well as 24s being that i can get quite a few reuses despite over inflating them 99.9% of the time...but when it comes to Cattexes....those GLs,dolls or giant rounds...those mothers last me for years as they are so resistant to my small athletic frame....though im down to only 7 of my crystal teal Q-24s....i popped one the other day shortly after over inflating it at my electric pump. I started hugging & squeezing & KABLAM! ....sigh....i gotta be more careful & ration those...What am i gonna do when i eventually pop em all !? I know ill never find them again! I ordered them back in 2013! sob.....

Hope you don't mind this coming from a gay guy but damn you sound like you'd be so hot playing with balloons. Athletic and all.

I had a 6' weather balloon, and blew it up with my girlfriend, with a pump. She went a little too far and it popped. Actually, the bang wasn't that loud. But she sure jumped!
