Law of the Garbage Truck

Wow this is a good one, I can’t take the credit for this at all, but I thought I should at least share.  What a great 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 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!
