\werk-stur\n. adj. A workster someone who is the opposite of a hipster, but is an obnoxious twat for the same reasons. A hipster is someone who thinks they are better than you because they have better taste in music, movies, food, etc. A workster thinks they are better than you because they work harder and for much longer hours.
Telling a workster that you work 40 hours a week will get you the same look of utter contempt that you would see if you told a Hipster that you love Justin Bieber's music.
Hipsters will tell everyone that they saw a band months before anyone had heard of them. Worksters will tell everyone that they were at the office hours before anyone else showed up.
Hipsters will brag about how they are friends with the singer of some band you've kinda heard of when, in reality, they met the guy for two minutes and spent the whole time begging him to take a picture with them so they could put it on instagram. Worksters will brag about how they work 100 hours a week when in reality, they worked 80 hours in a week one time, and spent 20 of those hours reminding people of how hard they "have to" work.
You see a guy at starbucks dressed in business casual with a company lanyard around his neck, talking to someone on the other end of his blackberry about how brutal his industry is to break into while reading emails on a windows laptop, think to yourself: "Look at that fucking workster."
