The Law of the Garbage Truck

The 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?
That 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. T
hey run around full of garbage — frustration, anger, 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.
*
Love the people who treat you right.
*
Pray for the ones who don’t.”
