Chili's officially forgives The Office actress Jenna Fischer 11 years later
If you're a fan of The Office, you probably remember the famous Dundies episode -- and how the secretary, Pam, got so drunk that she was banned from Chili's for life:
The episode aired in 2005; despite Pam saying she "felt God in this Chili's tonight," she was barred from entering anyway. Just this week, Pam actress Jenna Fischer attempted to go once again:
Fischer joked, "Should I try to go in?"
Thankfully, Chili's has officially decided to forgive Pam -- and Fischer. Following her tweet, the chain released a statement lifting her ban:
The statement reads: "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."

Kelli Valade, President of Chili's, remarked: "After reviewing the good conduct of Pam, I have decided to lift the now 11-year ban. Pam is an inspiration to many and we welcome her with open arms."
Overjoyed, Fischer replied to the statement via Twitter:
She said, "Second drink!" which is reminiscent of Pam trying to get a "second drink" when at Chili's 11 years ago:
