Do not think that because person A does something and faces no consequences, that it would be the same if you or person B did the same.

Use

Boss: You’re late! Stay late today Samantha.

Samantha: You ain serious?! Wuh Sheryl was late evuh day this week and when de clock strike 4:30 pun uh evening she is de fuss body out de door.

Boss: Samantha, that is Sheryl, not you.

Do not watch people and always take responsibility for yourself. 

Don't play the blame game.
