Garbage truck rule

Just got this in an email. Thought it was nice.

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 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!

I also saw sign that I HAVE to have.
