“The Office: The 10 Most Annoying Things Jim Ever Did”
There are many characters on The Office who are seen as annoying and ridiculous, but Jim usually isn’t one of them. While other characters like Michael and Dwight might be really odd and have little social skills, Jim is one of the few characters who is more grounded in reality.
While Jim might be overall less annoying than many of the employees of Dunder Mifflin, he still has his moments where he is obnoxious. Here are the ten most annoying things that Jim Halpert ever did on The Office.
17 Always expecting Pam to get in line with his plans
Of all of Jim’s not so great qualities, one of the most annoying is that he always expected Pam to go along with his plans for the future. He made major decisions such as buying a home and starting a business without even consulting Pam.
These weren’t really romantic decisions and came off as someone who thinks he knows best and not giving Pam the respect she deserved.
16 Forcing Danny Cordray to say why he didn’t keep dating Pam
Another super awkward moment on the series was when Jim and Pam kept badgering Danny to reveal why he hadn’t asked Pam out on a third date. There was absolutely no reason why they needed to know this, but for some reason, they just couldn’t handle the fact that Danny wasn’t smitten with Pam.
The way they kept bringing it up and forcing him to tell the truth was annoying and weird. This definitely put Danny in an unfair position.
15 Some of his pranks on Dwight
Dwight would definitely be horrible to work with at times. He could be extremely rude and obnoxious, and so wanting to get under his skin in return makes some sense.
While some of Jim’s pranks on Dwight seemed like harmless fun, there were many times when these pranks went too far and made Jim look like a big and annoying jerk. He often acted like he had a right to pull whatever kind of pranks he wanted and often thought he was a lot funnier than he was.
14 Thinking he was better than everyone even when he didn’t try very hard
Jim definitely thought he was amazing at his job, and while he was good at it in many ways, his overall attitude was a bit obnoxious to watch. While he was a good salesman, Dwight was actually better.
He might have been much better at his job if he actually put more effort into it. At the end of the day, his attitude was frustrating.
13 How little he seemed to care that Pam was often harassed at work
The way that Pam and many of the other women of Dunder Mifflin were treated was often hard to watch. Many of the women endured harassment and sexism in the workplace in a variety of ways. Pam was often the target of this harassment.
It was super frustrating to watch Jim never really stand up for her or protect her in these situations. It made him seem annoying and also like a bad boyfriend.
12 Going to visit the preschool with Pam
One moment that many fans agree made both Jim and Pam look super annoying was when they went to visit a potential pre-school while Pam was still pregnant. However, the pre-school owner was also pretty obnoxious in this situation, too.
While Jim walking in on the owner using the bathroom was a total accident, the fact that they just couldn’t understand why a person wouldn’t find them charming was weird. It made them seem rather stuck up and a little bit lacking in self-awareness.
11 How he could be rather uncaring about his co-workers
While Jim might seem like a nice guy compared to many of the other Dunder Mifflin workers, he wasn’t always that nice. He didn’t care that much about other people around him, and his flippant attitude could get obnoxious at times.
When his co-workers, who sometimes thought of him as a friend, would come to him for advice or help, he would often try to duck out of the conversation. This happened with people like Erin and Dwight. On top of it all, he would often leave Pam to have to deal with all these people.
10 When he revealed that Pam was pregnant at their wedding
This isn’t the most annoying thing Jim ever did because it was mostly just an accident and everyone makes mistakes. However, it was an uncomfortable and embarrassing moment when he revealed to everyone at their dinner rehearsal that Pam was pregnant.
Seeing how they had made such a big deal to tell everyone else not to reveal this information, it was a little bit irritating that Jim was the one to spill the bean, but it was still probably better coming from him than someone like Michael.
7 The way he broke up with the other women he dated who weren’t Pam
While Jim might be seen as this all-around good guy who is super romantic, he could actually be kind of a jerk when it came to dating. When he dated other women before Pam, he annoying and uncaring.
He broke up with both Katy and Karen pretty abruptly, and it was clear he didn’t actually care that much about them. They were both just placeholders because he couldn’t be with Pam yet or wasn’t ready to.
2 When he tried to leave Pam at the dinner party
The “Dinner Party ” episode is one of the funniest episodes of The Office, but it also has a moment that makes Jim look annoying and rude. When he cleverly makes up the story that his apartment has flooded, he means for both he and Pam to ditch.
However, when Micahel insists that only Jim needs to go, Jim is more than willing to leave Pam there. Given how Jan is treating Pam and how awkward the situation was, it’s annoying to watch this.
