Pam should have ended up with Brian the lovely boom mic guy instead. Not Jim.
Pretty much everyone considers Jim and Pam Halpert to be the most perfectly suited TV couple of all time. But guess what: You’re all wrong.

Because Jim is a dick.
Don't believe me? Well buckle up, people, because I have proof, and lots of it.
First of all, it’s worth pointing out that Jim doesn’t start off as a dick. His dickishness increases over time.
It pretty much starts the night he's turned down by Pam, but he still follows her to the empty office and kisses her anyway, even though she said no. Then when that *magically* doesn't win her over, he sulk-flounces all the way to Stamford.
Then there was his treatment of Karen. WTF, Jim.
He persuades Karen to move to Scranton, then he's weird with her. He’s gets pissy when the new apartment she finds happens to be close to his house, so he doesn't want her to take it. When Karen asks, “Did you ever have a thing for Pam?” he says, “No. Why?” That’s a direct lie. Then, when she finds out he did have a thing for Pam and wants to talk it through (as you would), he’s a jerk about that as well: “Karen and I have had a long talk last night, and the night before that, and every night for the last five nights.” Dickkkkkkkk.
