10 Ways Jim Halpert Ruined Your Life

I speak on behalf of anyone who has watched "The Office" when I state that Jim Halpert is one of the funniest and most lovable characters in the history of the modern sitcom. When I watched "The Office" from start to finish (in the span of a week because, yes, the show is that amazing), I determined that no television character or person in real life can ever live up to Jim. Here are a few examples of how I came to that conclusion

1. When he gave Pam the most thoughtful gift ever for the office Secret Santa -- a teapot full of inside jokes and mementos.

They weren't even dating at the time; he was just casually in love with her.

2. When he included a card with the gift that read, "Because at Christmas time you tell people how you feel."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F12%2F635909077512894209-1476182903_1368501868_jimpam12.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=126&h=13eddc0d55e1249646c92b1242fee26271e9c48143d93e115438d810259e005a&size=980x&c=1743124653 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F12%252F635909077512894209-1476182903_1368501868_jimpam12.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D126%26h%3D13eddc0d55e1249646c92b1242fee26271e9c48143d93e115438d810259e005a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1743124653%22%7D" expand=1]

And then took it back because he feared rejection. Only later giving it to her in season nine when they hit a rough patch in their relationship in order to express his neverending love for her.

3. When he made this face after he learned that Pam was pregnant.

(as everyone watching cries with happiness)

4. When he and Pam had the definition of a perfect wedding.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F12%2F635909085674414931-562090971_giphy-3.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=421&h=2285ffca3a082a73e493904edf4a21a23b426a930129158c120586f94ffe45bd&size=980x&c=3819821265 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F12%252F635909085674414931-562090971_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D421%26h%3D2285ffca3a082a73e493904edf4a21a23b426a930129158c120586f94ffe45bd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3819821265%22%7D" expand=1]

Because who doesn't want to have an impromptu runaway to Niagara Falls with the love of your life?

5. When he basically had any moment with Pam.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F12%2F6359090792369011991704267648_giphy-2.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=660&h=b72c713da0df169c5e5681d337988aea3f0dad55839338432589e5b3854e5625&size=980x&c=2988620672 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F12%252F6359090792369011991704267648_giphy-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D660%26h%3Db72c713da0df169c5e5681d337988aea3f0dad55839338432589e5b3854e5625%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2988620672%22%7D" expand=1]

We always knew they were destined to be together from the start.

6. When he willingly starred as the villain in Michael's Threat Level Midnight.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F12%2F635909064295794759-1417900427_giphy-1.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=426&h=76a062b640680a47ddacbf702c22aab771cae35707a09a139923bd3f0933d8ad&size=980x&c=815247084 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F12%252F635909064295794759-1417900427_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D426%26h%3D76a062b640680a47ddacbf702c22aab771cae35707a09a139923bd3f0933d8ad%26size%3D980x%26c%3D815247084%22%7D" expand=1]

He did do a pretty damn good job of portraying such an antagonist.

7. Whenever he looked into the camera and never stopped being his dorky self.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F12%2F635909097411048568-868961361_He-Has-Weird-Perfect-Wink.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=799&h=7c2428de2a1f2044da228ef556f25ed70423a34fca04b9d918f73ed4f80093e7&size=980x&c=4179791187 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F12%252F635909097411048568-868961361_He-Has-Weird-Perfect-Wink.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D799%26h%3D7c2428de2a1f2044da228ef556f25ed70423a34fca04b9d918f73ed4f80093e7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4179791187%22%7D" expand=1]

As viewers know, this happened every episode on multiple occasions.

8. Whenever he pranked Dwight.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F12%2F635909101123024556415851039_Battlestart-Galactica.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=431&h=2c1405a77133b64e47a99689163eaf42aa3fe5325223bf165387a4abc5ec6a19&size=980x&c=2521762166 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F12%252F635909101123024556415851039_Battlestart-Galactica.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D431%26h%3D2c1405a77133b64e47a99689163eaf42aa3fe5325223bf165387a4abc5ec6a19%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2521762166%22%7D" expand=1]

And nailed it. Every. Single. Time.

9. When he brought back Michael to Dwight's wedding in the series finale.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F02%2F12%2F635909091044817161668102891_200.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=39&h=dc4193add50e6dbec26c5c9e3c2198b48c3797ab3faa403b9cda6d0e761b96df&size=980x&c=3063257116 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F02%252F12%252F635909091044817161668102891_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D39%26h%3Ddc4193add50e6dbec26c5c9e3c2198b48c3797ab3faa403b9cda6d0e761b96df%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3063257116%22%7D" expand=1]

As if we weren't already emotional.

10. And finally, when he (and the rest of the world) teared up as he said goodbye to Michael in season seven.

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will.
