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 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 caused
an accident 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, full
of disappointment and rage. 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
pick up their garbage and spread it to other people in your life,
whether at work, at home, or to people that you don't even know on
the streets.

Always remember that good 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 and forgive and pray for
the ones who don't."


  1. I agree, one has to face life positively.

  2. completely, we shouldn't bring our garbage to other people's lives. not healthy.
