Mask confusion

Today, my coworker screamed at me for once again calling her by a different coworker's name. They have the same hair, skin color, and body type, so I honestly don’t know how I’m supposed to tell them apart. FML

by seeing them as individuals seems like a really good place to start.

It’s almost like...they’re completely different people and want to be treated as such

this!

unless they have the exact same face, it should be easy. You're an ass

so you can't remember who is who? here is some advice.....either learn who is who, or become self employed, because remembering people's names when you work with coworkers is "a thing".

Names can be tricky, try using the memory palace technique.

Tell her to get over herself

would you want to be called the wrong name all the time?

No but I understand that mistakes can clearly happen and it’s not the end of the world

a mistake is something that happens occasionally, being an asshole is showing a consistent pattern of disrespect. OP is doing the latter. also just because sometimes isn't "the end of the world" doesn't mean you have to put up with it.

Don't they have different faces? Sounds like you are just too lazy to try, and like pissing them off.

The same way you learn how to tell anyone else apart, by making an effort to do so. I am sure their faces aren't the same, unless they are identical twins. I am sure they don't wear the same clothes each day, and their voices are probably different, too.

Honestly this just sounds ignorant. Unless they’re identical twins you can take some time and get to know them both for the individuals they are.

It's almost like people have other distinguishing features and want to be seen as individuals. Imagine that.
