Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson in the back seat of a New York City taxi. Here’s what happened. I got on a taxi and set out for Grand Central Station. We were driving in the right lane when, all of a sudden, a black car cut in right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on the brakes. The taxi skidded （滑行）and missed that black car’s back end just by inches!
The driver of the black car, who almost caused a big accident, started yelling bad words at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. He was so friendly! I was surprised and asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!” Then my taxi driver taught me something, which I now call “The Law of the Garbage Truck”.
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 if you let them, they will dump it on you. When they do so, do not take it personally. You just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. You will be happy with what you have done.
I started to criticize myself for my previous reactions. “How often did I let ‘garbage trucks’ run right over me? And how often did I take their ‘garbage’ and spread it to other people at work, at home or on the streets?” It was that day that I made up my mind not to act like that anymore.
Successful people do not let “garbage trucks” take over their day. What about us? If we let more “garbage trucks” pass us by, we will be happier. Life is too short to wake up with regrets in the morning. So, love those people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who do not.
The plane took ______ at 10 o’clock sharp.
Not everybody feels the same way about cars. To some, cars are just machines on wheels. These people hunt for the best value. They look for vehicles that are not only affordable but also reliable, gas efficient, reasonably safe and not too expensive to repair. To some, cars are emotional extensions of their owners. Think about the excitement when one looks at a luxury car. The status, speed and wealth represented by such a car are certainly attractive. There is also a special class of car owners. To them, modern day vehicles are artistic disasters—tasteless and boring. The only real cars are those vehicles they see in movies in their grandparents’ time. These cars may be really antique but not ugly.
