We were all simultaneously baffled, bemused and concerned after Anthony Scaramucci was liberated from his White House posting after 10 days.
The communications director was removed from his post in what must be record time, and spawned both our curiosity and an extensive smattering of amazing How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days-inspired memes.
In honour of Mr Scaramucci, people are taking to Twitter to share their own tales of short term employment, an it's seriously satiating our snoopiness.
Here are a few of our faves:
