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 breaks, 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."
