A Young Upwardly Mobile Professional Person;
Bastard offspring of Thatchers 1980's Conservative Britain, suckled on her extreme form of capitalism the yuppies prime goal in life was to make as much money as possible in as short a time as possible.
Concepts such as morality, fairness and honesty were alien to the yuppie philosophy in his/her insatiable drive to become rich as possible before the age of forty.
The yuppie had complete disdain for people with little or no money and could spend the equivilent of a manual workers weekly wage 'doing lunch' in a wine bar.
Onlooker: Look at that poor bag lady over there, she has collapsed with hyperthermia.
Friend: Yes and is that a yuppie pissing on her!
Onlooker: Yes it is, but that's only because his friend set light to her first.
