A word derived from the root YUP standing for "Young urban professional". A wealthy person who makes sure that every other person is informed of that fact.
1. A person who is a Yuppie might live in an expensive apartment in a major city and works an important desk job at a large corporation. Probably wears expensive brandnames. Shops at hoity toity
stores us commonfolk probably never heard of. Buys coffee at Starbucks even though they own a $500 fancy shmancy
coffee maker at home.
2. In a family setting:
-Lives in a development neighborhood in a suburban area with few trees or foliage. All houses look very similar.
-Has a family dog(Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Saint Bernard, ect.)
-Drives a Minivan (I.E. Honda Odyssey)
-Mother of family does not work.
-Father of family holds prominent position at corporation in the city.
-2-4 children with a number of supposed allergies and health problems.
-Has a number of Yuppie friends who come to visit with their Yuppie children.

Yuppies can be annoying and arrogant. Few are actual decent and honest human beings.
