I was recently confronted by this sign as I pulled into the Angorichina Tourist Village in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia – see http://www.angorichinavillage.com.au/. You probably know that a yuppie is a “Young Urban Professional” or a “Young Upwardly-mobile Professional”.
Since I felt there was no chance that I’d be assessed as “young”, the risk of my not being welcome seemed rather remote. (However, I did have to pause and check that I was “real”.) Anyway, the chap in the shop served me without any hesitation, so that was good. But I did find myself wondering, if I’d passed the “young” test, what other attributes might have put me in the yuppie category, and hence rendered me unwelcome. In other words, how can you pick a yuppie?
What sort of things would yuppies do – or not do – that might upset the management at Angorichina? Please use the “Comment” button below to tell us.
