Many people are like garbage trucks.

Many people are like garbage trucks in that they just keep wanting to dump their personal toxic waste on you.  Don’t allow yourself to become their dumping ground.

Many people are like garbage trucks.
Wave goodbye and send them away.

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 look for a place to dump it. And if you let them, they’ll dump it on you. So when someone wants to dump on you, don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Believe me. You’ll be happier. ~ David J.
