Mouth Gargle to be ingested???

This is my monotonous lunch break ever. I dun bring my car today because i'm on my way 'pulang ke kampung berhari raya', then terpaksalah melepak-lepak di bilik rehat sambil surfing n blogging. Actually, there was a case Mrs. Lim n I discovered during dispensing time, today. Terpaksa tahan gelak time tu sampai muka dah jadi merah. There was 1 patient came over to collect his medication, a chinese old man. He complained of stomach discomfort after ingesting 1 of his medication. I was not sure wheather the dispenser told him wrongly or he got a problem wif his hearing. But the case was, he had taken a spoonful of Benzynamide (Difflam) mouth gargle, two times a day which he really thought was a cough mixture. As we checked his medication, we found that, he had finished the medication completely, OMG. Actually, this case may happen to anybody. Make sure, u know all the indication of ur medication u take and the dispensers should be more careful next time.

The Law of The Garbage Truck

A friend of mine, juz sent me an email about this wonderful story. Even though, I've heard it once, i've neglected it. But i think, it will be nice to share the story with others. It has a positive moral value to be implemented in our real life. Enjoy the story... \('_')/


Beware of Garbage Trucks
(by David J. Pollay)

How often do you let other people's nonsense change your mood?

Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day? Unless you're the Terminator, for an instant you're probably set back on your heels.

However, the mark of a successful person is how quickly he/she can get back her focus on what's important.

Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson. I learned it in the back of a New York City taxi cab. Here's what happened.

I hopped in a taxi, and we took off for Grand Central Station. We were driving in the right lane when, all of a sudden, 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's back end by just inches!

The driver of the other car, the guy who almost caused a big accident, whipped his head around and he started yelling bad words at us.

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was friendly.

So, I said, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'

And this is when my taxi driver told me what 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'll dump it on you.

When someone wants to dump on you, don't take it personally. You just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. You'll be happy you did.

So this was it: The 'Law of the Garbage Truck.'

I started thinking, how often do I let Garbage Trucks run right over me? And how often do I take their garbage and spread it to other people: at work, at home, on the streets?

It was that day I said, 'I'm not going to do it anymore.' I began to see garbage trucks.I see the load they're carrying. I see them coming to drop it off.

And like my Taxi Driver, I don't make it a personal thing; I just smile, wave, wish them well, and I move on.

Good leaders know they have to be ready for their next meeting.

Good parents know that they have to welcome their children home from school with hugs and kisses. Teachers and parents know that they have to be fully present and at their best for the people they care about.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let Garbage Trucks take over their day.

What about you? What would happen in your life, starting today, if you let more garbage trucks pass you by? Here's my bet. You'll be happier.

So.. Love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don't. Believe that everything happens for a reason.

If you get a chance , TAKE IT! If it changes your life , LET IT! Nobody said it would be easy... They just promised it would be worth it!
