The Law of the Garbage Truck
How to Respond to People Who Dump on You, and How to Stop Dumping on Others
David J. Pollay
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Twenty years ago, while riding in the back of a New York City taxicab, syndicated columnist and business consultant David J. Pollay had an awakening-and he converted the lesson he learned that day into a life philosophy: By letting other people's “garbage”-their negativity-simply “pass by,” and not dumping garbage on others, you can become happier and more successful, both personally and professionally. Since David published the “Law“ in his newspaper column three years ago, more than 1,000 blogs have posted it, millions more have read it, and organizations worldwide have adopted it. And the numbers keep growing. Translated into nearly 50 languages, people from more than 100 countries have taken David's “No Garbage Trucks! Pledge.” All over the world people remember the focusing metaphor of the garbage truck for what can be achieved in life by not staking success and happiness on the behavior of others. Powerful and easily understood, The Law of the Garbage Truck will guide and inspire readers everywhere, every day.

This book has helped my so much in my dealing with customers at my Deli.
Not everyone is a satisfied customer and sometimes I can get very emotionally involved with my product, reputation, and general expertise. I learned how to just let it go and move on. "Next, can I take your order? And have a great day!"
Thank you Mr. Pollay for your wisdom. I hope more people can learn to be happier too. I know my wife loves my job to stay where it is and not come home to my kitchen.
