Binge watching Mad Men (or, what passes for binge watching in a busy household), one can’t help but notice a few attitude changes. Taking the time machine back to the ‘60s, one is struck by some stark cultural contrasts between then and now. There are, of course, the overt workplace innuendo, pervasive smoking and the absent seatbelts. There is also a family outing where Don tosses his beer can into a field while the rest of the Drapers nonchalantly leave behind a flotsam of litter where their picnic blanket had been. What a difference five decades make. Then there’s the nine dozen Dunkin’ Donuts delivered weekly to the agency. One could grab some today and no one would frown at you. I suppose the more things change, the more they stay the same.
P.S. Here's a clip with Dunkin' at the Sterling Cooper break room
