So lately, bare minimum Twitter has been setting the inter-webs ablaze.

He carried my luggage up the stairs cause there were no elevators. #BareMinimumTwitter

1. His Halloween costumes.

Hmm... A hole-punched paper? A guy named Dave? "Book"? Jim's lack of Halloween spirit and overall participation is what's actually scary.

2. When he and Dwight threw Kelly a last-minute "birthday party."

NBC

While the use of paper was resourceful given their line of work, these ~minimalist~ decorations really were solely put together by Dwight. Jim did nothing and just insulted Dwight's neutral color scheme, even though he also forgot Kelly's birthday.

7. When he was a terrible employee and still managed to get promoted...?

NBC

All Jim ever did at Dunder Mifflin was bitch, flirt with Pam, and play pranks on Dwight, and yet somehow, he still got promoted. The fuq...?!

8. When he talked to Pam on the phone while she was away taking her graphic design course.

He answered her call, let her talk about her day and her classmates, and then proceeded to not listen to anything she said. What effort!!!

13. When he didn't know the words to Alanis Morrissette's iconic song "You Oughta Know."

NBC

Jim sang, "I'm here to remind you of the mess you made when you went away." The lyric is actually "...the mess you left when you went away." Not knowing "You Oughta Know"? Bare minimum.

14. And finally, when he wrote out his famous "priorities paper."

NBC

EVERYONE LOVES THIS BUT IT'S NOT EVEN THAT CUTE...??? HE COULD'VE MADE A GRAPH OR A PIE CHART, BUT NOOOOOOOOO. Sorry Pam, but it's not pretty killer. It's the BARE. 👏 MIN- 👏 I- 👏 MUM. 👏
