Default Law of th Garbage Truck

Law of the garbage truck

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 breaks, 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.'

"When the Power of Love over comes the Love of Power, the world will know peace"
"If your number one goal is to make sure that everyone likes and approves of you, then you risk sacrificing your uniqueness and, therefore, your excellence."
