When Antonio Guillem snapped the "disloyal man walking with his girlfriend and looking amazed at another seductive girl" or simply the "distracted boyfriend" photograph, he had probably not imagined that his photo will become the biggest meme trend of 2017.

In fact, the meme is still very much relevant in 2018, thanks to the people of the Internet who recently dug up the "original" source of the viral meme.

Here's a quick recap: a Shutterstock photo had surfaced and spread like wildfire on the interweb last year. In the photo, a man is seen shamelessly looking at a woman while holding his partner's hand. Twitterati got creative and put the photo into different scenarios with funny captions and edits.

Why are we suddenly talking about this meme, you ask? Turns out, a Twitter user has just unearthed a bunch of Shutterstock photos of "jealous girlfriend" from the viral meme that needs all your attention. Ernie Smith took to Twitter on Tuesday and wrote, "Know the girl on the right? I have something to show you, guys."

After Smith had everyone's attention, he opened a goldmine of photos, that left Twitterati "shocked".

The "jealous girlfriend" is always in disbelief everytime she looks at a screen.

We weren't kidding.

At least, she has company.

When you open your email inbox after a vacay.

"Cake cutting at 4PM" - HR.

When you are working from home and you actually have to work.

"Your pizza is out for delivery."

"You are not eligible for appraisal this year."

"Appraisal? Nah, not this year either."

"You texted me goodnight at 11 pm and you tweeted at 2?"

"You have an insufficient balance to make this transaction."

Okay, we MUST stop now...

... or try this one more time?

When your PC restarts and you haven't saved changes.

We're out.

Ernie Smith was kind enough to leave a footnote with other "shocking" photos you may want to check out.
