Are You a Yuccie?

15 signs that you might be one!.

You photograph food; relentlessly


And don’t care if you annoy your buddies in the process. And, of course, you Instagram your food pictures 
with those stereotypical hashtags like foodporn or dessertporn.

You judge people by their email ID


Have you rejected an applicant for a job because he or she still uses a Hotmail ID? Do you rib your friends about their Yahoo email ID? You are already half a Yuccie.

You prefer Netflix over cable (or DTH)


You’re constantly telling your friends about why they need to try Amazon Prime or Netflix and why their cable connection is overrated. You binge watch your favourite TV shows on Netflix and you proudly tell them that you can’t remember if your DTH connection is still active.

You think beards are cool, on other people


You want to be with it and yet you want to look professional and make the right impression at work. So you might have the occasional 72-hour stubble (Tom Ford invented this phrase), but shy away from the full-on beard. It’s the same with tattoos; you only go as far as invisible, small 

You don’t order mineral water bottles at restaurants


And lecture your friends about why they should be more sensitive to the environment. You always check if the water at the restaurant 
is safe to drink and also carry your own water bottle to most places.

You occasionally experiment on holidays


You won’t always stay at a conventional hotel, neither will you shack up at a youth hostel on a holiday. You are more likely to embrace the destination with an Airbnb accommodation option that still ticks your comfort boxes.

You are a coffee snob


You own at least three types of coffee brewing equipment—from a filter to a French press. You’d rather drink artisanal coffee and constantly complain about the coffee at Starbucks, except you might still do a business meeting there.

You ‘Uber it’ quite often

You’ve been threatening to sell your car for some time now, but haven’t got down to it. You love Uber and keep telling your friends that they should sell their car, too. You are more likely to Uber it than ride a bicycle.


You are a food snob


With opinions on what every restaurant serves in your city. You will go to any length for that authentic food experience. This might involve the occasional visit to a dingy street side joint where you will grit your teeth for that Instagram moment.

You use brands instead of words


From Netflix it to Google it to Shazam it, you don’t mind using brands instead of words even if it occasionally annoys people around you.

You lean more towards Apple


You crib about every iPhone upgrade, but go back for a bite of the Apple every time. You never stop talking about how poor your iPhone battery is and yet troll your friends who use other phones.

You support local retail


You try and shop at local stores (gourmet or organic, of course) and like to encourage restaurants that source locally. You probably grow a few exotic herbs in your balcony and make sure your guests stumble upon it.


You love your bicycle rides


And you’re part of some cool weekend biking groups, but there’s a good chance you drive to the local supermarket instead of using your bicycle to get there.

You profit from creative pursuits


You’re either already on freelance or consultant mode or have made some of your hobbies into revenue streams. From selling your photographs online or baking exotic desserts for a fee, you have already figured out what works.

You have more followers on Instagram than Twitter


You probably have more followers on Insta than friends in the real world and you think that Twitter is overrated. You believe Twitter should be used by brands as a customer support tool. Instagram, on the other hand, is cool. It’s where your followers and friends can follow your YOLO moments.
