From my friend Doug Edwards:
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? 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 those who
don’t. 

Life is ten percent what you make it; and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a garbage-free day!
