13 Reasons Pam Beesly Is Actually The Worst

She's not as innocent as you think.

For those of you that haven't seen The Office, you've probably at least heard of it and for those that have seen it, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Everyone knows that Pam and Jim were the lovebirds of the hit series and it was easy to see why. The first time I binge watched the show on Netflix, Pam was easily one of my favorite characters. It was clear that Jim and Pam had a fairy tale romance and I was jealous. However, after I watched the show again (don't judge, we've all done it), I started to pick up on little things I didn't notice before. Pam comes off as quiet and innocent receptionist but I soon realized that Pam was actually the worst. Here's why.

1. She flirted with Jim the entire time she was engaged to Roy. Yeah okay, so they were best friends but it was clear that on more than one occasion that it was more than that and they both knew it. Bottom line: don't flirt with anyone that's not your fiance.

2. She asked Jim to let her pursue her dream in NYC for three months. I'm definitely not saying that that you shouldn't follow your dreams just because you're in a relationship. But he was happy to let her go because he knew she was doing what she loved. But please refer to number 3 to understand why this is sketchy.

3. She asked Jim not to pursue his dream of improving his company by traveling cross-country for three months. They had two kids at this point but the reasoning for his wanting to do this was to improve their family and their lives. She failed to consider that he had encouraged her to pursue her dream and all she was able to do was guilt trip him into staying.

4. She was against Michael dating her mom. I could understand her being slightly turned off by the idea but at the end of the day, she can't control who her mom dates. On top of that, she then slaps Michael when he breaks up with her mom. Make up your mind!

5. She wasn't honest with Roy about her relationship with Jim. She failed to mention that he had kissed her on Casino Night until a few seasons later and that alone tells you that she knew their relationship was more than just "friends." And yet, her mom knew. Then again, moms know everyone so...

6. When she does tell Roy about Jim her, she makes it seem like Jim is to blame. Really though, she participated in that kiss just as much Jim did. Don't play him like that. That of course leads Roy to almost knock Jim to the ground with his fist if it weren't for Dwight and his pepper spray. But that's another story.

7. She tells Jim the sex of the baby even though he didn't want to know. Flash forward to when they're together and married and pregnant. He clearly didn't want to ruin the surprise but she called the ahead, found out the sex, and then let it slip in conversion. Terrible.

8. She went off on Michael when he started his own paper business. It might not have been the smartest decision in the world on Michael's part, but then again it's Michael. And Pam chose to leave Dunder Mifflin to start this business with him. Her choice.

9. She was upset when one of her bridesmaids hooked up with Dwight the night before her wedding. Once again, her opinion doesn't matter. I can understand somewhat just because it's Dwight, but they're adults.

10. She put Jim through the ringer about her replacement. Remember when she she didn't believe him that he didn't find her replacement attractive. Yeah that time. She went crazy and tried to trick him into telling her the "truth." But why wouldn't she just leave it alone. And then she got Dwight involved. Never good.

11. She put her need for a new chair over the whole office's need for a new printer. The ENTIRE office needed and wanted a new printer. But she wanted a new chair. Go buy one yourself. That's just plain selfish.

12. She play the opposite of matchmaker. People are going to be with who they want to be with. But she tries to keep Ryan away from Kelly and Andy away from Angela. Just because you have nothing better to do doesn't mean you should insert yourself in other people's lives.

13. She lies about having lice and leads everyone to believe that Meredith is to blame. It's bad enough that she didn't speak up and tell the truth, she allowed Meredith to believe that she was at fault who then proceeded to shave her head to solve the problem. That might the worst one yet.

Pam will always be a classic character, but she's definitely not the innocent receptionist turned sales woman she comes off as.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!?

Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
