Not all lifetime bans last a lifetime -- sometimes just 11 years.
Chili's has officially lifted their ban against The Office's Pam Beesly, played by Jenna Fischer, ending their grudge against the Dunder Mifflin character that was first sparked back in 2005.
In "The Dundies," the first episode of the second season of The Office, Pam got a little drunk at an inter-office award ceremony held at a Chili's (and then stole some drinks from other customers' tables), which resulted in her ban. But the chain restaurant is finally ready to put the incident behind them.
However, Chili's wasn't content with just replying to a tweet. On Tuesday, the eatery extended an olive branch and released an official statement welcoming Pam (and Fischer) back with open arms.
" Effective immediately, Chili’s® Grill & Bar has removed the longstanding ban on a Scranton, Pennsylvania woman who allegedly caused a disturbance during a company awards party held at a Chili’s near the Pennsylvania town of Scranton," Chili's wrote in a statement posted to their website. "'After reviewing the good conduct of Pam, I have decided to lift the now 11-year ban,' said Kelli Valade, President of Chili's. 'Pam is an inspiration to many and we welcome her with open arms.'"
Some of Fischer's co-stars (and Pam's office mates) were overjoyed to hear the news. Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin Malone on the NBC sitcom, suggested they have a mini-Office reunion over a plate of food.
"This is just freaking outstanding," Baumgartner tweeted. "@jennafischer when are we going?"
