Imagine yourself as being represented by the highlighted triangle above.
What is considered base, or lowly, by you may be seen as highly desired by someone else.
The inverse is also true; what you value could be that which is dismissed by many others.
"One man's trash...", the Biblical "The stone which the builders rejected..." or stories of the Prodigal Son - our culture is filled with tales of an an eternal Rochambeau-like hierarchy.

It's all tied into what the prevailing value system is. That's why the guy who cleans up mall parking lots can be a millionaire but not get as much as respect as the call center manager for Sprint!

@ FreeMan - Kinda' like your "Saved By The Bell Theory".

@ brohammas - but some stuff is meant to be trash and taken as such.
