Being the extremely wealthy blogger that I am, I decided to treat a 'friend' to a meal at the highly exclusive Harvester restaurant. The downside is that its located in Haywards Heath (thankfully on the outskirts!)
Lots of rich people from Burgess Hill must like going there as the restaurant area was rather busy. Seeking a quiet area where we could actually hear ourselves speak we decided to 'slum it' by eating in a cosy corner of the pub section.
Sadly, our meal and high quality conversation were spoilt by a bunch of ignorant ratbags. Occupying the leather sofas next to the quiz machine were a group of approximately 15 youths that were taking it in turns to rotate between slouching on the sofas, playing on the quiz machine, to going outside to have a cigarette.
These youths must have been loaded, they were constantly getting fresh drinks. The more they drunk, the rowdier they became, it must have been all the sugar from the Pepsi.
It was the observation that they were all exclusively drinking Pepsi that made us realise their 'scam'
Harvester currently have a promotion whereby if you order a soft drink with a main meal, then you're entitled to free refills. The thing is, these annoying 'young adults' hadn't purchased a main meal at all. They had been mis-sold the drinks promotion and were milking (or should that be pepsi-ing) the system for all its worth.
The Harvester is now the newest Youth Club in Haywards Heath.
The entry fee is £2.09. It gets you free refills of Pepsi cola, the thrill of being in a pub, with access to a quiz machine, public toilets, music and comfortable seating.
You can be as loud and as annoying as you like and the staff will refrain from ejecting you from the establishment as they are all without testicles.
I think I'll settle for a night in with a Papa John's Pizza and a bottle of Pepsi than bother with the Harvester again.
