I Ranked 'The Office' Characters Arbitrarily But Correctly

That's what she said.

I Ranked 'The Office' Characters Arbitrarily But Correctly

"Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me."

16. Toby Flenderson:

I shouldn't have to explain myself here.

15. Ryan Howard:

Ryan's just a grade-A jerk and is rude and lazy and just awful. And he has this weird personality 180 once he takes the job at corporate. He used to be semi-nice but then he just turned into a MEGA douche. Also, how did he manage to just not go to prison after committing fraud?????

14. Jim Halpert:

This one will ruffle some feathers. It's not that I dislike Jim, it's just he's kind of annoying. He's just kind of there, and definitely isn't the funniest character. He's super sweet and I love him and Pam's relationship but overall, eh. Also he has a huge nose.

13. Kelly Kapoor:

Also just SUPER annoying. She has good one liners. "I'm the business bitch" is a classic. But she doesn't really contribute anything. She's one of those that could go missing and I wouldn't notice.

12. Andy Bernard:

aka the Nard dog. Andy always means well but I don't know how vital he is to the cast. He is for sure funny but is another one that is just kind of "there". Him and Angela's relationship was the WORST. I know it was meant to be hated but man did I sure hate it. He's a sweet guy but just not a standout. I do love when he punches a hole in the wall though.

11. Meredith Palmer:

Personally, I think Meredith's funny. She's crass, inappropriate, and makes people uncomfortable...what's not to love? I'd pick her over Ryan any day. When she lights her hair on fire? Amazing.

10. Darryl Philbin:

Aw, Darryl. Darryl doesn't get enough credit. He is really funny and when I love when he messes with Michael. He has a good heart and really grows throughout the series. Remember when he teaches Michael it's "cool" to say "Bippity boppity give me the zoppity?".

9. Oscar Martinez:

Oscar is another one that doesn't get enough credit. He is always the most level-headed one in the office but still remains pretty funny. I'll never forget when he and Michael embraced. He was a bro and didn't sue the company. Also he runs a blog called "There's No Accounting For Taste", sealing the fact that he's maybe the one fun accountant in this world.

8. Pam Beesly:

Another one that might be unconventional. Pam is super nice and helpful. She puts up with all of Michael's crap and she hasn't had it easy in life. I would rank her lower because in all honesty she isn't super funny or anything but "I feel God in this Chili's" is enough to put her towards the top.

7. Stanley Hudson:

Oh, Stanley. He's just the best. He's the grumpiest guy in the whole show but still manages to be a crowd favorite. I feel a connection with him with our shared love of pretzels. He can also be kind of a jackass, but I'll overlook that because "DID I STUTTER".

6. Angela Martin:

I'm probably one of the few people that would consider Angela to be one of my favorites. I just think she's super funny. She's super sarcastic and impatient yet she's strangely conservative and has an unhealthy obsession with her cats. I also always quote the most obscure reference to her which is that my wedding song will be what she wanted hers to be: The Little Drummer Boy. Also her and Dwight are the best.

5. Phyllis Vance:

Ugh I just love Phyllis. She is by far the sweetest in the office and I just want her to be my great aunt or something. She's also surprisingly raunchy and that just makes her so much funnier. "I wonder what people like about me...probably my jugs".

4. Kevin Malone:

Oh gosh, where to begin with Kevin. There aren't words to describe him. From his love of M&Ms to his "The Police" cover band, he's easily one of the most lovable characters on the show. He's definitely not qualified to be an accountant but that's okay because we love our Cookie Monster.

3. Dwight Schrute:

Dwight is someone I would absolutely hate to actually work with, but I absolutely love him. He's just so weird and everything about him makes no sense, but at the same time makes perfect sense. I'd kill to stay at his beet farm. Truly an amazing character.

2. Creed Bratton:

This one is going to throw everyone for a loop. But yes, you're reading that right, I LOVE Creed. I don't know, maybe it's the fact that everyone else I talk to about him hates him, but he's just my favorite. He has all these incredible one liners and everything about him is so random and confusing. I feel like his life story is so so interesting and I so wish there would've been a whole episode dedicated to Creed. Who could forget "What's a text?", "The Taliban's the worst", or "If my parents see this I'm dead", OR when he wears that black wig to act like he's young??? What can I say I love the guy.

1. Michael Scott:

This was probably very predictable, but of course Michael is #1. Michael Scott is one of the greatest TV characters of all time. He has the best heart. He loves every one of his employees like no other boss has before. He's immature and has the humor of a 12 year old. He's just hilarious. I never fail to laugh at anything he says/does. Michael Scott is the best we'll ever have. THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

This Hair Mask Is Like A 5-Minute Head Detox — It's The Best Thing I've Ever Put On My Dry Scalp

It's perfect for anyone who's disguised their dandruff as snowflakes.


- Like face masks, hair masks are a great way to do a more intense treatment that tackles more specific issues like dry strands or an itchy scalp.

- I don't necessarily suffer from dandruff, but my scalp can get a little itchy post-workout and in the colder months.

- I tried the Malin + Goetz Detox Scalp Mask and it was a game changer — my scalp felt cleaner, smoother, and more refreshed than ever in five quick minutes.

- The mask is a go-to for a clean detox of my hair and scalp after I've put a lot of product in my hair or done a lot of styling to it.

Like most self-proclaimed beauty guru and product junkie, I've been obsessed with my hair and hair products for decades. For me, the goal has always been to transform my dry, brittle strands into thick, shiny, and silky ones.

For that reason, I've spent a lot of time (and money) on styling and heat products that have, at times, made my hair look great at the expense of excess product buildup and heat damage.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Remember when thin eyebrows were in? Unfortunately, me too. If you've over-tweezed your eyebrows, you know how much of a painful and slow process it is to get them back to a "normal" shape — let alone trying to keep up with the newest trends that seem to come and go every other month.

But, what does that look like nowadays? A defined, thicker brow which, I will admit, takes a lot of time and practice to perfect.

I'm A Student At Drexel University And COVID-19 Has Been Frustrating

My experience as a senior at Drexel University in Fall 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.


I am a senior mechanical engineering major at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. Drexel already has a weird quarter term system, so classes began at the end of September. All undergraduate classes are online, either synchronous or asynchronous. However, most graduate classes are still in-person.

As of October 19th, Drexel has 14 active cases (13 students and 1 employee). There has been a total of 113 cases in the Drexel community (104 students and 9 employees).

CofC just finished midterms and every student I know feels burned out. This is a very frustrating feeling and it feels like things will never return to the way they were. Remember to go easy on yourself and just do your best.
