DINK on the other hand? I am owning that acronym. Makes complete sense, right?
|For you visual learners... this is a DINK family|
Yuppie: An entitled, too-big-for-their-britches young adult, around 25-30, give or take a few years. Think, trust fund, silver-spoon fed accountant that never really had to struggle, or take out a college loan. Their lavish attitudes come from a lack of appreciation for having expendable funds.
DINK: A young adult, around 25-30, give or take a few years. They worked hard to get ahead. They appreciate the money they have earned and are not completely frivolous. While they are certainly stocking away for retirement in 40 years, they are also making sure to enjoy themselves with a little pampering, in the form of clothes, shoes, vacations and Crate & Barrel purchases.
Honestly, what it boils down to is this: when it comes to a DINK, I feel like there is an inherent sense of working for what you have received. Yes, I have a good income, as does my husband, and for the moment, we are sans children. That is nothing that I have to apologies for. Furthermore, I will buy my coffee bars and rent my four bedroom house and occasionally buy a pair of shoes that I probably shouldn't, and I will love my life. I have earned it. And damn it, for the last time I AM NOT A YUPPIE.
|This photo just seemed so right|
Are you a DINK or a yuppie? Or do you feel ok with either stereotype? Or would you bash someone's head in (verbally, of course, never physically, oh no) regardless of which one they called you?
