Complaining about the good ol’ days is something that really happens in just about every job. Everyone always has this tendency to think that things were so much better back when this person or that person was in charge, or before a certain technology comes into play. In many ways, this is an extension of the nostalgia that so many of us now crave. We want to harken back to a somewhat-similar time, and also figure out some better days to do that.
The sneak peek below for Sunday night’s “The Good Wife” features at least some of this coming from Diane, who feels like the new people are far too interested in their personal lives, and not interested enough in their professional ones. In some ways, it feels like she is playing one of the straight-laced characters in “The Millennials,” the recent “Saturday Night Live” sketch that complained about them.
This scene is short but sweet, mostly because it presents different sides and is, at least for us, not meant to be seen as the show telling people to get off its lawn. Cary thinks that there is something good with the younger generation wanting to be more focused on their own lives and keeping their hours under control.
Could Cary be right? We feel like it is in part somewhat of a mixed bag. Diane wants to get work done, so of course she is frustrated by the speed not being what she likes. However, Cary may also be onto something that the last thing you want to do is get these people burned out; if that happens, it will be hard to get them to work for you at all.
