Law of the Garbage Truck

Forwarded story:

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 in the most friendly way, and I do really mean friendly way.

So I asked,

'Why did you just do that?

This guy almost ruined Your car and could have sent us to the hospital let alone the morgue!'

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.

is ten percent what you make out of it and ninety percent is how you take it!

May God bless you, and

Have a blessed, garbage-free day!
