Not sure if I'll call it have to or get to, but I'm kind of the balloon man at work. I'm the one blowing up balloons for birthdays, special events and for marketing. Always inflate a few too far in hope of a "random" bang

Smile Re: Do you have to blow up balloons as part of your job?
Hi there,

Sometimes I Do. In my daytime job as a school teacher it happens now and then that I participate in blowing up balloons for some event. Sometimes I also use a balloon for experimental purposes in class (one of my subjects is physics/chemistry), and finally there are the ‘last day of school’, where there often are various contest where the teachers (must) participate. I have even been put into a blow to pop race once. I won BTW - with all the experience I have the others were no match, not even the male teachers
In my evening job in the local youth club it happens quite often that the job involves something with balloons. Each month there is a party, and most times balloons are used for decorations. I am sometimes put in charge of the decorating team, and I gladly help with blowing up the balloons. I love to provoke the balloons being blown up ‘properly’ - and now and then they get just one blow too much •giggles•. When I started in the youth club, I was still anxious about balloons and I also worried how I would react - getting visible turned on would be almost unbearably embarressing, but it showed out that I could handle it, and now I am just happy to ‘help’ with the balloons Sometimes there are arranged games, and they sometimes also involves balloons. One of the coolest was a contest where two teams (20 - 30 each) competed about who could blow up the most balloons within a certain time (I think 10 or 15 minutes). I was given the job of judge for the one team. All I had to do was to count the balloons, but in a special way: To ensure that a balloon was blown up big enough it had to not be able to not pass through the ring, and if it was big enough I just popped it with a pin and counted it in. Even though pin popping isn’t ‘my way’ of popping balloons it was just super cool to watch everybody racing to blow up balloons as fast as possible and to get the opportunity to pop so many balloons in such a short time - not to mention the bangs from the other teams balloons. I can definately recommemd this game - and it was not even my idea! There have been lots of other games - also good ones, but this is one of the best I have ever been put into.
So yes - I sometimes do have to deal with balloons at work

Maybe we could make a thread about innocent (non-sexual) balloon games. They might not be a huge turn-on, but they can definately be great fun!

Thanks for reading my posting.

Susie

My story is eerily similar to Susies(as she can attest)!However I might give her a run on her comment about the male teacher inflators!!

Itís an awkward delight having them in tan educational setting. However the absolute best is when all leave and youíre left with a multitude of used and abused toys to dispose of!

Thanfully, I've never had to inflate balloons for anyone else (that I didn't want/need to do them for), and - to be honest - I'd feel nervous about doing it, unless:
1) I was sure no one was going to see me blow them up,
2) The balloons were decent quality (so limited risks of popping)
3) And only if a lady asked, and there were no other men around to see me blowing them up.

The whole idea of blowing-up balloons for someone else, scares the heck out of me!

The only time would be like a birthday and some were blown up. We did once have a fun day with games and one game was each team blew up balloons without popping and the team with the most balloons at the rated size won. By the end there were loads left lying around the following day they were still there and at the end of the day I took loads home in bin bags. It made my day as some were inflated to the max.
