It’s been a while since I’ve watched The Office. After Jim and Pam got married, I think my heart broke in half, and I was unable to continue watching, knowing that Jim would never be mine. But up until that point, I loved the show. When I started working in an office full-time, the summer before my sophomore year, the show started becoming a lot funnier to me. Understanding the dynamics of office interactions at an introductory level made the antics in every episode more interesting and, somehow, relatable. Of course, most offices (thankfully!) do not run like they do in The Office. But nevertheless, I did learn a couple of worthwhile lessons about the working world from observing Jim’s daily life.
