How Hard to Inadvertently Bend Steel Frame?

This is probably a ridiculous question but I'm wondering how hard it is to inadvertently bend a steel frame. I have a Surly Long Haul Trucker Deluxe (the one with S&S couplers) and I jumped a bit to quickly put all of my weight (about 150 lbs) on the top tube to see if there was enough air in the bike tire. I'm guessing that I'm being overly paranoid but is there any way I would be able to bend the top tube by quickly putting my weight on it? There's no distinct bending in the frame but I'm wondering how I might go about checking for minor bending. Thanks!
