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.

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!

"Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it
tougher for sober people to own cars." - Unknown
