In the introduction to Chapter 4, the author describes his evening with street corner men. When offered a drink from a communal bottle of wine, Henslin only pretends to drink, fearful of diseases he may contract from the bottle. Other than the fear of contracting disease, what other cultural norms may have caused his  strong aversion to drinking from the bottle?

Drinking from a common bottle constitutes a form of physical intimacy. Most people in our culture are uncomfortable sharing a bottle in this manner with anyone they do not know very well. The author did not know his companions well enough to share this form of intimacy. The quality of the wine shared was probably inferior to what he was accustomed to drinking and the social setting added to its distaste.
