Balloons in the car defy physics

I drove to work with two helium balloons in my car, WHAT HAPPENED NEXT BLEW MY MIND!!!

When I accelerated, the ski gear heaped in the cargo hold sloshed to the back. But the balloons sloshed to the front hitting me in the head.  When I hit the brakes, the helium balloons went to the back and the ski gear, rolled to the front! WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE!?!?!?!?

Conclusion: Helium Balloons do not obey the laws of physics.
