The opposite of hippie, if you will. Used to mean "young urban proffessional" but now it is used as an insult towards young people who happen to wear suits.
It is also used as an insult to mean shallow, but conservative people.
Usually, yuppies are racist and xenophobic, and against abortions. They will exhibit a limited amount of intelligence and regurgitate news heard from such crappy channels as "FOX" or "NBC" or even "ABC" . Sometimes they are extremist Christian, but not often. Usually scientifically atheistic. It doesn't matter what colour their skin is, they can still be racist against their own.
They don't wear too much jewelry or makeup, and their music of choice is the horrific genre of "soft rock" or "easy listening". Their style of dress is conservative, but not bad considering the alternatives. They wear leather briefcases or nylon laptop bags, and have a sense of self-importance with their blackberry cellphones and their IPods.
They wear brand names like Eddie Bauer, Tommy Hilfiger, sometimes Armani and, if they feel funky, D&G. Coco Chanel is seen as an idol, but usually, the females will wear Coach bags, because these are more in fashion.
Yuppies like to pretend they're not following trends, but they follow trends just like townies and trendies do.
A yuppie is a corporate lawyer.
A business person is a yuppie.
Damn yuppies are at it again!
An acronym originally meaning Young Urban Professionals. Usually referring to one who exhibits pretentious or snobbish behavior.
The two Yuppie met at Starbucks and fell in love while comparing their L.L. Bean catalogs.
(n.) Used to stand for Young Urban Professionals, but has now strayed to define the 20-year-olds at Starbucks who type for hours on their laptops, probably writing a novel that they apparently want EVERYONE at Starbucks to be interested in. They often wear stylish black glasses, slim black clothing, tote yoga mats, and big bulky colored scarves regardless of the temperature outside. They are health conscious, live off salad and black coffee, and often frequent poetry slams and wear jaunty berets. If you ask them what they are writing about, expect to be either talked down to, or have them use the biggest words they can think of, even if they're out of context, hoping you don't know the meaning anyway.
Mitch: "Hey look, I've always wondered what it is those yuppies type away on."
Frank: "Bad idea man."
Mitch: "S'cuse me miss, can I ask what you're writing?"
Yuppie: (Looks up from coffee as if she's never seen people before) "It's an esoteric collectivist's detailed analysis of the resurgence of middle-American culture in relation to the increase in demand for soy milk since its invention in-"
Frank and Mitch have died.
The first thing to know about Yuppies is that they have no national or community allegiance; therefore they are International Capitalists who enjoy exploiting the labor of third-world nations for their own private profits. Usually, Yuppies will live in "secured" buildings or a precious "gated community" surrounded by other Yuppies who fear working class retaliation. Yuppies are the bane of all racial minorities and actual Americans because they undermine, subvert and sneer at anyone who does not make $250k a year. Certain Yuppies want so badly the false appearance of being "down" or "hardcore" -- used as a sneaky trick to hide their obviously large paychecks (pejoratively known as a "urban 'hipster' "). But, when push comes to shove they would just call their precious police or cry like little bitches.
Generally speaking, Yuppies love to appear cultured and have roots, when in reality they are just conformist shills willing to do anything and bend over at any command.
Bob: Jim! We need to hire some more compliant Yuppies who will let us use them for our evil goals.
Jim: Yes master. I will see that a new batch are brought in right away, your magnificence.
Bob: Excellent workplace compliance Jim -- sure to reward you many dollars.
Jim: Pleasing my master is the only holy financial goal.
1) An out dated acronymn used in the 80's and early 90's that meant: Yes Under Peer Pressure I Eat Shit. It indicated that there were brown nosers on the way up the chain of seniority in a corporation career
Yuppies brown nose their way up the corporate ladder.
Yuppies are typically people who listen to mainstream "music" garbage like Daughtry, Nickleback, or something equally soft, lifeless, and pathetic. Although yuppies are stereotyped as being morally correct, some have quite a bit of a superioty complex.These people usually have happy attitudes and it's really painful to hear them talk with their overly-peppy attitudes sometimes. Yuppies are known for having a cheesy and fake approach to the world around them. It's just sad!
A conversation between a yuppie and non-yuppies at a pep rally:
Yuppie:"All right everyone!!!!!!!!!!!Who wants to be our fuzzy, adoarable school mascot at the pep rally??????!!!!!!!"
