Ever experienced the embarrassment of mistaking a customer as a store worker just because they were wearing the same kind of shirt?
It happens more frequently than we’d like it to, and this Thai student knows exactly what that feels like. A Twitter user recently shared her story of jumping on a construction worker’s motorbike and instructing him to fetch her to school, only to realise that he wasn’t the taxi driver she thought he was.
The netizen posted the tweet, hilariously sharing:
“Today’s joke. I was rushing to class because I was late. Upon seeing an orange shirt (uniform for motor taxis in Thailand), I waved at him and he stopped his motorcycle in front of me.”
“I jumped on his bike and told him to send me to the pier.”
It wasn’t until halfway during the journey that she realised she was actually on the motorbike of a construction worker! Not a taxi!!!
She explains that Thai motorcycle-taxi riders are often identified by their bright orange vests with numbers on the back. However, the bright orange colour is very similar to the vests that construction workers wear. Hence in her flurried state, she wasn’t able to distinguish between the two.
The Twitter user said she was only able to identify his true profession because he was wearing a white construction helmet.
“After sitting on the bike for awhile, I thought it was odd that his helmet looks like that of a construction worker’s instead of a motorcyclist’s. In short, he was indeed a construction worker. Hahaha.”
What’s more amazing is that the kind man still insisted on sending her to the pier. She went on to add that he even refused to take the money that she offered him for the ride.
“But I gave it to him anyway and then ran quickly to the pier,” she wrote.
Apparently, this is a common occurrence in Thailand. According to the Smart Local, Netizens who discovered the tweet responded to it with their own stories of mistaking normal motorcyclists as taxi drivers.
Other netizens joked that she must have been a pretty girl, and that’s why the man was willing to stop and drive her for free!
Well, we’ve all been through it one way or another! We’re just glad that these good folk are still kind enough to lend a helping hand regardless.
