Law of the Garbage Truck

Law of the Garbage Truck
 
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off
for the airport We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a
black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other
car by just inches!
The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
 
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was
really friendly. So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy
almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’ This is when my
taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’
 
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around
full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of
disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes
they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally.
 
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their
garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the
streets.
 
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks
take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with
regrets,
so … Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don’t.
 
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!
 
Have a garbage-free day!
