New Tires, slow day at office.....

OK here's my dilema. I bought some new tires for my bike at lunch, and seeing as we are slow today I thought hey I will throw these on and not have anything extra to carry home. I forgot I only carry a CO2 inflator with only 2 cartridges. the tire sizes are 26x1.25....

Should I gamble and install the tires or just wait until I get home in the comfort of my workshop???

What would you do?????????

Do any of your coworkers have one of those little cigarette lighter-powered tire pumps in their trunk?

Is there a gas station near you place of employment?

A back-up plan would be nice, but I think that you could safely do atleast one tire. If the first tire uses only one cartridge, then to the second one.
