On the other hand... these "fools" have accumulated a lot more money than I ever did... so am I actually the fool here???

Being in this custom paint biz, I have learned what, at the time, was an unexpected thing. Not everyone likes the same things!!!!!!!!!!

Some of the many jobs I've done have taught me that my "task" is to help them create "their" vision... not mine! It was hard at first, but today I enjoy the variety of "themes", no matter how bizzarre they may be!!! (Of course, my own taste is "less conservative" than most enthusiasts prefer today, so that helps.) Sigh. {:-)
