GOING to work, eating some cereal and paying a parking fine are all just like House of Cards, it has been confirmed.
Research has shown that all situations ever can now be directly compared to the fictional programme set in Washington DC.
Plasterer Wayne Hayes said: “I was at work yesterday and took a call on my mobile. As I was speaking I thought ‘this is exactly the sort of thing Frank Underwood would do’.”
Carolyn Ryan, from Dorchester, added: “My son doesn’t really phone any more, and it got me thinking. It’s just like when Frank Underwood and Freddie fell out in House of Cards.
“Also, my mother often enjoys talking to herself, just like Frank Underwood in House of Cards.
“It really made me laugh when I thought of it. Honestly, it’s like House of Cards around here.”
