Your Workday Told in 12 Ways by House of Cards

Your Workday Told in 12 Ways by House of Cards

The perfect representation of your daily freak out at work.

I Am Avig

Let’s face it. House of Cards should go down in history as a cult classic show.

For those of you that have been living under a rock, House of Cards is a Netflix original that portrays the story of a ruthless congressman who has done everything (and I mean EVERYTHING), manipulative and evil to steal his way into presidency.

Netflix blessed us with the fifth season of the series on May 30th and it has done nothing short of please.

In honor of the spectacular show, here are 12 ways House of Cards (and some help from GIPHY) describe your workday perfectly.

(((Disclaimer: I love my job and everyone that I work with, and I certainly hope your job brings you joy. Just spreading some workplace humor, and love for House of Cards, of course!)))

When you’re about to present to your difficult client.
You’ve rehearsed your presentation over and over again and you’re ready to rock it and take on any difficult questions (or bullying) that they’re about to send your way.

Frank’s even got some words of wisdom for you.

Claire FTW for motivation. Thanks, girl!

“I’m here. Let’s do this!”


*Sitting, contemplating quitting*

“ ...what do you mean you don’t like my proposal?”


*Your grand exit*
They know what that salute really means …

Smugly reflecting on the show you put on at work today.

Letting go of some stress.

“I really need to seek some counseling.”

*The next day’s long walk from the parking garage to your office.*

Another day, another dollar.

And there’s a lot more drama where that came from. Check out House of Cards on Netflix ASAP! (And most importantly, don’t try these stints at work!)

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
