The Planet Beach in Bear is located right next door to my daughter's daycare. The staff and clients of this location are the trashiest sort of people I have ever encountered. They use foul language in front of children and drive their cars wildly through the parking lot. I have had at least 3 incidents this year alone where I or my car was almost hit by one of these people. Each time I asked the person to be more careful and the response was a loud stream of vulgarities, which is quite disgusting coming from young ladies that think they are special.
The owners have refused to stop smoking in front of the walkway where the babies and toddlers are walked every day, despite being asked politely. They have access to a back door which would not interfere with their own clients either, but they simply have no regard for others.
They also double-park in a lot which is frequently full, making it very difficult for people to pick up their children at the end of the day. After a while, some of us were forced to park further away from our child care center because of their double-parking. Our center director complained, but the staff did nothing. Then, when they noticed we were parking further away, they complained to the strip mall owner that parents were parking in "their spaces." If they had addressed our complaints in the first place, that wouldn't have happened! Luckily, the landlord told them they didn't own the spaces and we could park where we wanted. Obviously parents want to park as close as possible...if those spaces aren't available we have to park further away.
After the last near-miss today, I decided to call the police on each reckless driver I encounter, and I cannot wait for the officer to call me for my version so I can detail the months of issues. My children were both shocked at the curse words coming out of this young woman's mouth at their mother, and I am furious that the owners have such little regard for others in their own community. Simply disgusting.
