THE LAW OF THE GARBAGE TRUCK

I got this nice email from my friend currently studying at Canada for his Phd. This story happen to him a few days ago. I thought it was nice and something worthy to sharing with. Enjoy and read it if you have time:

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. 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!

  1. yeah, worthy sharing.nice job bro.

    hhmm…bro, even u r always improving urself time to time, but for certain thing u doesn’t change even a little bit. u r always conceal ur feelings all d time n hide it by urself. even u doesn’t say, but i know u r facing a problem. yeah, u r as usual n as expected – a dauntless-man.

  2. yeah, there r several words i like most:
    -Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t.
    -The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.

    but, i assumed that this article is relate with mofas’s feelings now. is it? bro, problems always occurred n happen to us day in n day out. its depends on us how to handle it professionally.

    bro hafiz, what do u mean with those words ‘u r always conceal ur feelings all d time n hide it by urself’? what happen?

  3. actually, for ur information, last evening i was shocked by bro mofas bcoz he suddenly appeared in front of my room n knocked d door. he came here without any notice and no hello at 1st.

    and when am asking him why he is here, yeah as usual he said that just give me a on-d-spot-check. we r spending almost an hour n on dat time he had tried his best to conceal his feelings n hiding his problems. but i can feel his feelings bcoz of our chemistry.when am asking him what d problems, he had said nothing.he is such a dauntless-man just like before.doesn’t change a bit.
