Turns out she is a quitter, and a record-breaker too.
Liz Truss has resigned as British Prime Minister after serving just 45 days in office, a new record for the shortest-serving PM in British history.
For the next shortest-serving Prime Minister, you'd have to go back to 1827, when George Canning died of tuberculosis after serving 119 days in office.
You can get antibiotics for that now but, sadly for Truss, there are still no antibiotics for being terrible at your job.
Given the historic nature of Liz's departure, many people are making comparison's between Liz's tenure as PM and other notable events. In fact, someone has even created a 'things that lasted longer than Liz' Twitter account.
