(A young urban professional" or "young upwardly-mobile professional")


Did you wear a designer suit?
Had you a phone the size of a brick?
You worked in the business district.
You had a filofax.
You had a fancy car, possibly a BMW
Possibly had salmon or oysters for lunch and washed it down with something bubbly.


Then, you were YUPPIE [Big Grin]

I wasn’t a yuppie. But back in the 80’s, when I was in HS and then college, I hoped to move to New York City someday and become one of them. I’d hoped to be dressed to kill with designer suits and heels and a successful Husband. Well, that never happened 😂
However, I do have a wonderful, successful Husband and live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh

High water jeans with designer bart Simpson t-shirt
We had a wall phone to call time and temperature
Pizza pie maker which was a popular place to work in 80s movies. Beats the heck out of bronco burger.
What the fruit is a filofax.
1966 Nova that was actually pretty sweet and a 1977 Corvette.
Old el paso refried beans with cheddar cheese melted on top

High water jeans with designer bart Simpson t-shirt - a different take on sophistication [Razz]

A filofax was an organiser, you put important names and dates in it.

The Corvette does sound good.

Old el paso refried beans with cheddar cheese melted on top - sounds like something we might of had after many hours and many beers.
