One of my colleagues actually thought I was an Eskimo.  She told me so while we were washing our hands in the ladies' room.  Here's how the conversation went :

c :  Can I ask you a dumb question ?
me : Yes go ahead (wondering what she's about to ask)
c : What's your nationality? 
me (looking at her warily)
c : no no I meant : "where are you from?"
me : Korea
c : Oh that's what I thought.  We (her and some other colleagues) had been discussing you and the others thought you were Chinese.  I thought you were an Eskimo. 
me (looking at her, not quite believing my ears)
c : Well yes I thought you were an Eskimo, because you often wear that sweater. 
me (thinking what sweater is she talking about)
c : Yes, you know the one from Canada with the dogs. 
me  (thinking that sweater!) : Oh I see, well no I'm sorry to disappoint you, but no I am definitely not an Eskimo.

And the sweater she's talking about is in fact a t-shirt, which I bought in Canada and yes there are husky's depicted on the front.  But I didn't realise that would make people think I was an Eskimo.

Anyway that's not the only stupid thing I ever heard. 

Another colleague once asked me if I ate dog. 

Oh my ... some people really can be dumb sometimes.
