 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 the ones who don't.
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a blessed, garbage-free day!

Hi Connie, Your post must have been meant for me today. I did get a car wreck (1st ever). It was the other drivers fault. I didn't know what to expect. The other driver was so nice and I was as well. I called the police. It took an hour for response. I ended up knowing the other drivers father who had done work on my house about 15 years ago. I did call the police back and the officer that answered knew me and said they would be there soon. Then the officer on the phone asked me if I would come over next week to list a rental home. I believe if I had "garbage" to spread the officer would not have responded with a listing.

Hey Connie, I spend a lot of time on the road so this is good to remember. It is the right attitude to have on or off the road actually. Hey, wasn't Monique's story cool?
