Community·Posted on Aug 12, 2021I'm Sorry But Pam From "The Office" Was Criminally Amazing, And No, I Will Not Accept OtherwiseDon't sleep on my girl Pam!by skluzwritingCommunity ContributorApproved and edited by BuzzFeed Community TeamFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. She's so sweet, everyone wants to be her mom! NBC, Global Television Network Okay, I know I'm starting off with the "Pam has two actors playing her mom" joke, but seriously, this character has such a kind demeanor that she probably would have multiple mom figures lining up for her. 2. She has the prettiest art of all the art. NBC, Global Television Network It takes a ton of skill, practice, determination, resilience, and nerve to pursue an art as an adult. Pam not only keeps up with her practice, she even tries it out professionally from time to time. 3. She knows how to take a hit and keep on moving.

Yet, she always finds the strength and courage to put those things behind her and continue in a new direction. 4. She's brave, but not stupid. NBC, Global Television Network Remember that night that Pam confessed her feelings for Jim and walked across hot coals? How about when she stood up to Frank from the warehouse when he painted butts on her mural? Or who could forget that moment when she gave up her whole life as she knew it to move out of state with Jim and his new business? I think that says it all. 5. She is realistic. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC, Global Television Network/Peacock / Via giphy.com Some characters from The Office go way overboard with their antics. Sure, Pam had a couple of unhinged moments over the years — like when she refused to go to the hospital with her first pregnancy — but overall, she's kept a level head. She is often seen keeping other characters on track throughout the show. Heck, she could practically list "babysitting Michael" on her resume! And she's not afraid to turn in another direction when things don't seem to be working out, like when she dropped out of art school after dreaming about it for so long. 6. She knows how to have fun. NBC, Global Television Network Most of this is about how Pam is kind and responsible. I want to point out that she also knows how to have fun, too! She set up and ran the office Olympics, played along with Jim's pranks, got super competitive at the company volleyball match, and drank until she felt God in that Chili's. This girl knows how to throw down! 7. She is a true friend. NBC, Global Television Network From air-fives with Jim to giving love advice to Michael, even going on awkward pregnant walks with Angela and comforting a broken-hearted Dwight, Pam has stood by nearly everyone in the office at one point or another. 8. She puts up with some major bull when it comes to her marriage. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC, Global Television Network/Peacock / Via giphy.com Okay, hear me out! I love Jim as much as the next person, but he had some serious growing up to do! He's a total slob when it comes to taking care of his living space, he bought his parents' house without even consulting Pam first, and he snuck behind her back to join in on Athlead. I'm not saying he didn't have good motives for all of this, but she has definitely made some sacrifices in her marriage that make her a true trooper! 9. She has had a MAJOR glow up! NBC, Global Television Network Think of Pammy from the first episode. She was stuck in an awful relationship, unhappy with her position as a receptionist, afraid to follow her dreams of becoming an artist, and too timid to take what she wanted in life. Throughout the show, we see her break off toxic ties, go to art school, try out different positions within Dunder Mifflin, confess her feelings for a taken man, and eventually get on the path to the life of her dreams. Oh, and don't call her Pammy! 10. Pobody's Nerfect! NBC, Global Television Network I can gloat about The Office's number one character all day and some will still tell me how she's boring or demanding or a cheater. I'd like to respond and close with a wise saying from this character herself, "Pobody's nerfect!"
