ELEGY TO A GLASS OF WINE

What is it that a glass of wine has?
It costs 75 pesetas (€1.50-€3 nowadays) and gives you the right to: use a toothpick, waste paper serviettes, read the paper, watch TV, sit in a chair, occupy a table, do a number 1 or 2, waste the toilet paper and water in the bathroom, wash your hands with soap and water, use the hand drier, throw cigarette ends on the floor (although you can't smoke in bars since Jan 2, 2011 you can still throw the butts on the floor), play dice, cards or dominoes, meet new people, laugh or complain out loud but, above all, have the right to say that the owner is making too much money!!
