The Office: 5 Unpopular Opinions About Jim & Pam’s Relationship

Jim and Pam, or PB & J, are one of the most iconic couples in television history. Some find them charming from the very beginning, some realized it after rewatches. But, a casual The Office fan usually thinks that there are multiple kinks in their relationships that tend to outweigh their good times together. So, today, we have brought 5 such unpopular reasons as to why we think Jim and Pam were not as picture-perfect as the show’s creators were trying to portray.

1. Jim Isn’t Vocal When Needed

Pam is often the butt of jokes in the office by people like Dwight, Michael, Phyllis, Angela, and even Creed. They clearly think Pam is an office mattress and whatnot and occasionally made fun of her skills too. But, unfortunately, it seemed like these all things kind-of slid by Jim’s ear and never stuck long enough on his mind because he never was vocal when it was needed to defend Pam. Even as a friend or lover, he was either a silent listener or a background skeleton hanging at a chemistry lab.

Some people really dislike Pam nonetheless

2. They Think They’re On A High Horse

Throughout the show, Jim and Pam have negatively judged all the people around them in Dunder Mifflin. Any time anyone did anything that they disapproved of according to their standards, they would pass a look or make faces that came off as smug. It seems that they thought they were better than everybody else and had their lives sorted out way better. It was clearly not the case.

Look at their smug faces

3. How They Just Don’t Give A Hoot About Others

Remember Kathy, played by Amy Adams? Remember how easily and nonchalantly Jim broke up with her on a cruise soon after Roy announced his marriage date. Yeah, that was not cool. You must remember Karen. Do you remember what she did to deserve the treatment from Jim and Pam? She was kind, fun, and interesting, but it seemed like Pam was rude towards her from the get-go. Jim should’ve never been involved with her when he clearly had feelings for another woman. Jim and Pam are equally to blame for why Karen left the office so abruptly.

4. They Are Cringy At Times

Die-hard The Office lovers can never see any flaw in their relationship. But the rest of us, who saw and regarded this show as just another comedy, Jim and Pam’s shenanigans that they think are cutesy, can come off as cloying or, for the use of a better word- corny. Sometimes Jim and Pam try to be so sweet that viewers get diabetes through osmosis. Chill it a bit!

It’s just not cute anymore

5. They Are Unhealthily Codependent

Jim Halpert didn’t ask much from Pam when he wanted to do something he had been dreaming about since he was a sophomore. He wanted to travel and meet his basketball heroes, but Pam was a tad bit over-obsessive which ultimately proved that she didn’t trust him or maybe didn’t want him happy. Chaining someone to commit to a relationship can never work in real life. Jim and Pam addressed this issue towards the end, but a non-sitcom man can harbor some serious issues over this heartbreak that could be fatal for a marriage.

Many men globally felt Jim’s pain but apparently, he didn’t

 

Do you still ship them? It’s alright, about 60% of The Office lovers must be sharing this sentiment!
