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

    Have a wonderful, garbage-free day!
