Are You a Sitcom?

We’ve all heard of “Yuppies” and most of us have heard of “DINKIs” – a pair of Yuppies, this stands for Dual Income, No KIds. I did hear a couple of new descriptions recently though. “SITCOMs” are what DINKIs turn into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids. It stands for Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. Then there’s “SILKIs” – What SITCOMs turn into when they have more children which stands for Single Income, Lots of KIds. And finally there’s the “LOMBARD”, (the name of a well-known UK financial institution) a derisive description generally applied to a single Yuppie, it stands for “Loads Of Money But A Right D*ck”!
