The Office Trivia

We’ll admit it: The Office is a pretty cringe-worthy show. While it definitely made us laugh, we often felt bad about the laughs after the fact. But, weren’t those cringe-worthy moments what made it so real? Michael Scott was an idiot… but he was a well-meaning idiot. Dwight Schrute was intense, but don’t we all have a super intense co-worker? And, if you’re anything like us, you probably treat staff meetings the same way Stanley does.

So, if you’ve watched The Office six and a half million times because you can relate or just because it makes you laugh through your cringe, you probably think you know everything about the show. These The Office trivia questions will put your brain to work.
