(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.

Yuppies is a fun to say and text someone mean yes or yup in a fun way.
When you are angry, try to yell it because you might laugh or smile. "YUPPIES!!!!!" It's like yelling out the words bubbles.

Stands for Young Urban Professional. Yuppies are usually the children of doctors and lawyers, hold Master's degrees from Ivy League universities, and are very concerned with their appearance. Many were in fraternities and many live in expensive houses or apartments.

Yuppies can typically be seen in large metropolitan areas such as Portland or New York. Their wardrobe consists of grey, black or khakhi slacks, usually with grey, striped or pastel colored suit jackets and shirts. Yuppies typically take the idea of competing for social status extremely seriously. Their culture revolves around Starbucks coffee, expensive foreign restaurants and romantic comedies starring Julia Roberts or Tom Hanks. Yuppies generally only hold political views that are considered trendy.
Many yuppies go into fields such as politics, big business, public administration, medicine and law. You may have worked for one.
The most popular movie about yuppie culture is American Psycho.

Yuppies are what happens to hipsters and preps when they grow up.
