    Default Law of the Garbage Truck

    One day a man hopped in a taxi and took off for the airport. They were driving in the right lane when suddenly a car pulled out of a parking space right in front of them. The 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 them. The taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean he was really friendly.

    So the man asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when the taxi driver taught the man what is called 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

    He explained 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 garbage-free day!
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Excellent advice, but much easier said than done.

    If certain words hadn't been invented, I don't think I could drive to work.
