Friday morning, Ebony's Jamilah Lemieux shared a story of having been mistaken for an Amtrak employee, even though she wasn't in a uniform and happened to be on her phone

Thankfully, this guy was semi-woke and said he understood what he did was wrong.

' ' But that isn't always the case. The story inspired other people to share their moments when people assumed that they were around to offer a service when in actuality they were customers just like them

' '

Or being mistaken for the coatroom

' '

And you didn't even apply for the job

'

Next time you should...nvm, that's illegal

'

How even?!

'

Looks like we need to avoid Walmart.

'

You must have been ready to go.

'

Judge by the color of the shirt, not the color of the skin.

'

Is it bring your baby to work day?

'

How Sway?!

'

The headphones must be connected to the employees in the back.

'

Yikes.

'

Yep, definitely not going to Walmart.

'

I hope you did indeed drag her into recognition

'

Definitely would have put these in the nearest trash bin.

Oh don't do it...

Homygawd.
