Average person-I'm gonna fuck your wife, take your time with the lobster.
Christian Bale portraying a yuppie in American Psycho
Most of the characters in American Psycho
far right dude: I hate these damn yuppies. I can't stand they flaunt their metrosexuality with their designer labels, lattes, luxury cars, and globally conscious health food stores. It's european-wannabe wimps like them that corrupt America!
Yuppies will move into an area that was once affordable in the city, but they got wind that it was “hip” to live in Wicker Park, or SoHo, or the Teapot District, so they gentrify it.
Gentrify means to make unaffordable for anyone but yuppies.
$1000 a month for one room in a hellhole, and the yuppies make fun of my car.
Yuppies differ from your bog-standard "business man" due to their relatively young age, their blatant arrogance, bloody-minded ambition and the fact that they care more about their work and making money, than the fact that everyone thinks they are a complete twat.
