But Sunak need not despair, there are loads of other things he can do instead of, you know, leading the country.
Here they are:
1. Open a pharmacy
We're not sure if you'd know this, he really hasn't made much of it at all (not) but Sunak's parents ran a pharmacy. He goes on about this in a weak attempt to seem relatable, despite now being stonking rich.
If he loved his mother's pharmacy so much, maybe he should use some of his stacks of cash to open a new one now he's lost his chance at being PM.
2. Live in the US
Sunak had a green card until last year and has spent a lot of time in the US. He was even criticised for going on a trip during one of the many times the energy crisis heated up and he even has lavish property there.
People have suggested the US might be calling for Sunak but he has rebuffed such suggestions.
You never know though - we could see him lounging around on the west coast someday soon.
3. Become a waiter
During the pandemic, Sunak promoted his Eat Out to Help Out policy by doing what he likes best - taking a silly photo. He was papped in Wagamama serving food that we are sure he has never eaten in his life.
Maybe he impressed the management at the food chain enough to get a full-time job there?
\u201cGreat to pop down to @wagamama_uk after the statement today.\n\nThey\u2019ve already bought more than 2,000 staff back from furlough and will be one of the many restaurants to benefit from the VAT cut and \u2018Eat Out to Help Out\u2019 vouchers.\u201d
During his leadership campaign, Sunak appeared in front of a sign with an embarrassing typo and was promptly roasted. And in October last year, he made a similar clanger when he posted a photo of himself on Twitter preparing for his Conservative Party conference speech.
“Practise makes perfect” he announced. It should be, of course, "practice".
\u201c@RishiSunak Sorry to be *that person*, but it\u2019s \u2018practice\u2019 (noun) not \u2018practise\u2019 (verb).\u201d
Sunak has been criticised for being out of touch because he has an expensive Peloton bike which he uses to exercise. Leave him alone, the man deserves to get his blood pumping just like the rest of us. Yes, some of us may go to the gym to use bikes warm from the arses off previous cyclists, but we are not all Sunak and if you can afford a swanky Peloton, go for it.
But we think he should go one step further with his passion and become a Peloton instructor so those using the bikes can hear the former chancellor scream "work harder" at them, which is all very Tory when you think about it.
9. Learn how to use a contactless card
While promoting fuel policies in the spring, Sunak was filmed grappling with an everyday item - the contactless debit card. The then chancellor poked it at a screen rather than a card machine at a petrol station, and people despaired that he was in charge of the country's finances.
He later admitted he had no idea what he was doing, so it is time for him to work out just how it works.

Sunak has come up against the challenges of the map a couple of times in his career. During the leadership contest, he appeared to suggest Darlington was in Scotland and he previously left people cringing when mixed up the names of two northern towns on live tv.
Time for Sunak to get his head down and learn.
