Yuppies, Yuppies everywhere

As I'm sure some of you have noticed, there has been a sharp rise in the local yuppie quotient recently. To be fair, that's a pat descriptor. I'm not trying to paint all young urban professionals with the same brush, I'm just talking about a certain sub-variety.

What bothers me is not the tacky clothes or the conspicuous comsumption (who really needs $200 rubber boots, except maybe pig farmers?), its the seemingly prevelant attitude of superiority, nay hauter, displayed by some of this ridiculous crop of folks.

Case in point, I'm buying groceries today when Mr. and Mrs twenty something Type A come striding, runway style (sunglasses on, jiggas!) down the aisle two abreast with two carts.No attempt was made by them to alter trajectory or to even politely, ever so slightly, pause to consider the situation. Polite types will stop and smile, perhaps chuckle and say, "excuse me" while accomodating one another's momentary needs. Needless to say, evasive action was neccessary, meaning I had to BACK OUT of the aisle while these two automatons proceeded. Even my not so subtle 'what the fuck?' facial expression and hand gestures were met with a cool sunglassioed stare.

Just remember (rude)Yuppies, nature abhors a vacuum, so don't be surprised when you here that little popping sound in your ears, its just your feeble personalities finally dying.
