Law of the Garbage Truckb (Thanks Chelly)

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!

Have a garbage-free day!
