So you want to be a Yuppie? Here's what you have to do.
Never act masculine. Masculine is macho, you know, and all the soccer moms just HATE anything masculine.
Never learn how to drive a stick shift like a man. Drive a wussy automatic, just like an old grandma. Or a chimpanzee. Step on your brakes all the time, just like an old lady. Ride your brakes going down all hills. Never learn how to gear down your transmission or take it out of overdrive.
Cultivate arrogance. Wear it on your face as a smug expression. Always talk down to waiters and service people, to let them know you're a hot-shit Yuppie. To prove your worth, always blow a trumpet fanfare when you lock your car. Be the first Yuppie on the block to buy a set of trumpets that blow when you lock your house. Everyone wants to hear trumpets, and they will all look up to you in awe and admiration.
Always jabber and prattle on your cell phone like an old lady gossiping. Everyone who sees you will admire you.
Learn to call problems "issues," just like a soccer mom. All the soccer moms will admire you for that.
Tell everyone you're going on vacation in Cancun or St. Tropez. That will surely score you big points with the soccer moms.
Always carry a PDA. The more useless things it does, the better. Show everyone how it can dial a phone and remind you it's time to go for your manicure. For extra points, let it remind you to go for a pedicure.
When a crowd is listening, pick up your cell phone and talk LOUDLY. Say "buy 40,000 shares of IBM."
Wherever you go, assume an air of entitlement. You are entitled to take your dog inside stores, despite the NO DOGS signs. You are entitled to use your cell phone in the movies. You are entitled to two parking spaces.
Trent is an insipid, smirking Yuppie. He is entitled to park his Lexus in the handicap parking place because he'll only be in the store for 20 minutes.

The most annoying type of person on the planet. Young and often taking their jobs too seriously, often tuning out the rest of the planet hence becoming the laughing stock of anyone with credibility/ even half a brain. Cares about oneself, and oneself only.
Does that person know anything outside of their own world.... hell no that stupid yuppie can only focus on herself

steve: "you would like turkey bacon you yuppie!"
Made famous by yours truly, Yuppie can be used in many way. It can be used as a replacement for yup, yes or yea. Yuppie is a word you add to a sentence randomly to make people think you're happy and awesome. What's the first thing you think of when you say Yuppie... PUPPY!
I went to the park yuppie = i went to the park and it was fun

A derogatory euphemism generally used by blue collar workers, the less fortunate, or lazy (generally out of envy) to describe young, educated, medium to high income professionals that enjoy spending the money they work hard for. Usually, the terms McMansion or suburbanite will accompany the use of the term.
College Dropout: "I can't stand that city-- all those successful, suburbanite yuppies with their high payng jobs living in their huge, brick McMansions. GAH! Who could EVER want a life like that?"

Young Upcoming Professional Person with "ie" added on the end. Used in the 80's to describe the new breed of professionals who were young, wealthy and generally successful in business.
Anyone with decent clothes, mobile phones, and blackberries are considered to be yuppies.

The Rodney Trotter from Only Fools and Horses was a yuppie
