The Law of the Garbage Truck #fb

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? 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 garbage,

spend the day with garbage and go to bed with garbage…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!
