A well off person that is spoiled from wealthy parents whom considers their values in society of utmost importance, generally behaving as if they still live in the eighties and every reality show is new to them.
Yuppie: Speaking of handing in papers late, I'm always wondering about how people can come in so late, are they not ashamed of how they look?
Proffessor: Oh, you're so smart!

A derogatory term for city kids and Yankee children. Used by southerners and country folks as an insult.

A pretentious and selfish professional person who is so arrogant, he blows a trumpet fanfare every time he locks or unlocks his car, to show you how great he is.
Yuppie (locking Lexus): BEEP! BEEP!

Me: Hey! Lock your car like a MAN, not like a yuppie!

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.

A yuppie is any man or woman who believes they are entitled to high end paying jobs with little or no experience. This is the “everyone gets a trophy generation”, which was created by the “latch key kid generation.” Parents of yuppies, while trying to eat their emotions of loneliness, successfully over compensation their children’s accomplishments and discounting their failures. Mainly because their mommy and daddy was smoking crack in the parking lot of a WHAM concert in the 80’s,while they sat on the living room floor alone eating Trix in a cup while watching the Smurfs.

Although Yuppies appear to have the latest in “trendy retro clothes”, in reality, they dress this way because they have no job and ransacked their grandma’s attic, grabbing what moth eating clothes they could. Then return to their unfurnished apartment, to which they will refer to as a “studio” that has a small eco footprint, which supports a generation that doesn’t need “physical things.” Another physical trait of the yuppie, is the more recent Pompadour Fade, or otherwise known as the grease comb over. Although trendy, it is actually by design, a health measure. By smearing grease in their hair, pulling to one side and shaving the side of their head, this allows for ease when checking for mites or lice, due to the fact that they are unable to have running water in their “studio”. This “Fad” will allow the perfect disguise to hide their true balding within the next 5-10 years.
Ben: Tom, you should minimize your green foot print and down size your home that you worked so hard for.
Tom: Ben, eat shit yuppie, get a job, wash your hair and tell your parents to get counseling.

The term came about as an acronym for Young (Y) Urban (U) Professional (P) sometime in the early 1980's.

Yuppies tend to have at least Bachelors degrees (but more common, these days, graduate or professional degrees such as JD's and MBA's) and work in high paying professions such as Law, Accounting, Investment Banking, Engineering etc. Yuppies are known for their conspicous level of consumption and obsession with status symbols.

They tend to reside in urban environs such as Manhattan or San Francisco, but there are also suburban areas that are heavily populated with yuppies (such as Menlo Park/Palo Alto and Marin County, all in northern California).

Often times, Yuppies are "Big Hat, No Cattle" types who pay $2,000 a month to rent a swanky apartment and spend another $1,000 a month financing a luxury car, but at the end of the day have a negative networth because they are so in debt from their student loans and credit card bills.

For a perfect example of the yuppie lifestyle, watch the movie American Psycho.
Prospective Renter: Why are the rents here so high?

Landlord: Because the yuppies are willing to pay top dollar for the prestigous address and the fact that the building is right down the street from all the swanky restaurants, nightclubs, clothing boutiques and cafes.

Anyone who walks out of a shop with a 15 dollar sandwich and calmly watches the officer take the 500 dollar boot off his vehicle for parking in the wrong place on purpose.
Anyone who thinks that walking their dog at a block party and saying hello to someone else walking their dog is going to get them laid.
Anyone who's so ignorant of traffic that they tell someone "you can't come in here" when they're having one of their stupid little block parties.
In my opinion, yuppie neighborhoods are no better than the ghetto.
