My last girlfriend was amazing at overinflating balloons. Idk how but she usually got a 12" close to 20" without popping it

Quite impressive. Takes quite a bit of patience to get there

Seems there's still people out there who like to try their luck, the young lady on the krispy kreme drive-thru last night blew this one up when I asked for a balloon "for my daughter".
She even asked if it was big enough, I was quite tempted to say no.

That's pretty big. I'm surprised it survived the journey home.

Oh my that is amazing. It always surprise me how people blow balloons up so much, not even seem to realise that the balloon has limits!

Where is this Krispy Kreme! The one near me always has balloons on sticks but they're always under inflated! I've got loads from there and they hVe now moved the balloon tree behind the counter!! Wonder if it was because I was nicking them all!

Amazing picture Vicci, thanks for sharing it! Bet you were well happy with that!

It survived the journey home, and overnight, but must have popped whilst I was out on Sunday as when I got back only the stick remains (I still haven't found the remains of the balloon).

It was the Krispy Kreme in Peterborough - usually they have small ones out and about, but as it was late at night I guess they didn't have any ready done so she did one for me as they weren't busy.

Nice You should definitely have asked her if she could put just a little more air into it...

Me and my boyfriend went to a Mexican place for dinner last week, they had balloons on sticks and there were an odd mix of underinflated and incredibly over inflated. Obviously we took one, didn't last long when we got it home

I remember walking around one of those booth-style trade fairs in some large building back around high school age. It wasn't uncommon for many of these booth to have candy bowls, balloons, etc to draw attention. There was one booth in particular that the guys manning it were putting up helium balloons, but unlike all the others, these were pushed right to the limit! I remember hearing quite a few of them popping while walking around. I should've gotten a few of those!

Wow Vicci, that's impressive! Did she do it with a pump or did you have to wait for her to blow it that big by mouth?
