A cross-cultural misunderstanding?

Someone from another office was kind enough to invite us to help ourselves to left-overs from a lunch meeting.  Which led to an interesting conversation.

"Just salad?  No tuna sandwich?"

"Wheat and I don't get along anymore."

"That's okay.  We have some white."



"No, I mean wheat grain.  I can't eat white bread or whole wheat bread."

They finally persuaded me to snitch the tuna filling and leave the bread behind--I'd never get away with that if I had Celiac Disease, because I'd have to worry about even minute quantities of gluten--so I ended up with the innards of a tuna wrap, and everyone was happy.
