    I would have skipped the bread (good for you that you didnt). If I'm doing a favor for people and they can't reply to a text... oh well.

    We thought about that "WhiteWheat" brand, just to be funny.
    Decided it wouldn't be prudent.

    we did (both text and calls).
    took 45m for them to finally respond

    I would interpret that as white bread, no wheat bread.

    I too would have been confused by that instruction. If my prior messages had met with no response, I'd send this text message: "Heading into store. Don't understand, 'one loaf of bread, no wheat.' What kind of bread do you want? Will be in bread aisle in about ten minutes. If no response by then, will skip bread." Then it's on them to clarify.

    Of course, I'd then hang out in the bread aisle for about fifteen minutes waiting for a reply and trying to puzzle out the answer.

    No wheat would have confused me too! I would have thought that it would have meant either white bread (versus wheat bread), or some weird gluten-free bread.

    "One loaf of bread, no wheat"? It's rare to find bread here in the Western World that contains no wheat. It exists ... e.g., as 100% rye, 100% oat, or (as far as I can remember without resorting to a bunch of research) 100% rice bread. So "bread, no wheat" can be had ... but it's not common around here. I'm guessing that your neighbors simply don't understand what they were asking so in the absence of a clarifying text or call, I'd have bought either a loaf of white bread or something professing to be 100% gluten free (that'd teach'em ).

    The conundrum is that white bread is made from wheat. My luck would be I'd get white and they would say, ""Oh no, we can't have gluten, we need bread made without wheat." Then I'm stuck with something I don't eat or have to return it. And I hate having to return things.

    Mrs. CN eats weird breads. So I text a picture of what the store has so she can make the selection.

    purchased generic store-brand white bread

    requested brand: sara lee (any variety other than "wheat" would have sufficed)

    what we eat: wheat bread

    what we WANT to eat: squishy white Wonder bread

    current store bought rotation: Dave's multigrain

    Anything but wheat. I would have thought “not wheat” as they forgot the “t”

    I would have texted back asking for an explanation.

    If I heard nothing, I would have bought what I eat. If they said, "I can't eat that." I'd say, "Fine with me." and take it home.

    I would have bout a multi-grain, thinking it was meaning no wheat bread, so anything but wheat bread? Hahah

    who knows… but what did you end up buying and what was the requested brand?
