    unlike dairy's queen's superior frozen treat which has bits of candy finely crushed and thoroughly blended in with the ice cream, braums incarnation is just a bunch of ginormous candy chunks blended through it, and even worse, more huge chunks of candy to choke on piled high on top of it.
    Blizzards suck. There is nothing better on this Earth than a Braum's chocolate and strawberry Mix.

    Because no one's going to show up at the window after having ordered and not have their placard? Yeah, right. People would take advantage of that right and left. This would slow down an already slow process (and frankly, I don't know what Braum's you all go to or what you order, but it's usually fairly fast for me, unless I get chicken strips and those take awhile to cook, and anyone that cooks chicken should know that!).

    On the contrary---I don't think there was any questioning.

    Wait a second, though; Airplane's outline inspires a question. Have they started making shakes and malts with frozen yogurt unless ice cream is requested? Thank you for your input, Braums manager.

    1. Please sell one or two grocery items through the drive through. (There is a huge market for this business concept.)

    2. Please do not make malts, shakes or mixes with soft serve frozen yogurt, unless requested. (Typically most people do not like soft serve as soft serve frozen yogurt is used as a cheep substitute for real Ice cream - Real Ice Cream is something Braums was once known for.)

    3. Pay your employees fair and treat them with respect. ( I hate seeing a manager with a power trip pushing the teenager workers to their limits, I'm surprised the managers have not learned they will not get real results by treating people poorly.)
    Like your list, but may I add:

    4. Please CLEAN up the stores! They are filthy! I've been in theaters with cleaner floors than Braum's...and the restrooms at Braum's are worse than at any fast food place.

    5. Require employees to wear fresh aprons at least daily, or better yet, replace aprons half-way through their shift.

    6. Wait on customers who do walk in! It's sad to see five employees waiting on the drive-thru and only one working the counter.

    This. I also recall a time when the lone employee tending the walk-in customer (me) answered the phone twice (taking call in orders) before getting to me. Hello, I am actually HERE trying to give you money. Take care of ME. They will call back.

    The same way all stores do, handicap parking, asistance if needed, etc:, they will even carry your items to your car if needed.

    Found it interesting that many of you want soft serve ice cream but yesterday Sonic announced they are adding machine-dispensed real ice cream.

    Nit-picking, I know, but where does it say "hand-dipped"?

    Good thing about soft-frozen yogurt is that it is 99% fat free.

    Unless you do as I do and order it dipped in chocolate, not as good as a dip cone from Dairy Queen, but it will do for now.

    My question is directed to Braum's Manager. I park in handicapped, manage to get myself inside, using a cane. Go get milk, take to counter. Go get bread, take to counter. Go get orange juice, take to counter. Go get eggs, take to counter. Go get bacon, take to counter. Get check out. Have 2 bags, one hand to carry. Never one offer of help. Have you ever been handicapped? It sucks! Nobody likes to always have to ask for help from those to whom we are giving our money. At the door, non-employees always...ALWAYS are kind enough to hold the door...they can see I am walking with a cane. Even women do this. I'm just saying that if Braum's is claiming to accommodate the handicapped, they haven't shown me. By the way, handicapped parking spaces are the law, so no biggie in Braum's favor.

    FF yogurt needs that type of kindness. Good on ya for protecting it from the elements, if only for a brief while.

    OKC is the fattest city cause its really one of the most boring. Theres not too much to do here. Many of the malls are closing or have closed.

    So all there is to do is play video games, stuff your face at home or at a restaurant, light up a few smokes to ease your depression, or cuddle up to your chunky sweetheart on the couch.

    They do what they are required to do by law. The rest is just a favor. They are not required to help you in any way more than giving you parking, the space in the bathroom, and to let you have a seeing eye dog if you require one, as far as I understand. They are accommodating you--you are asking for more than is required. And in this day and age, that is asking a lot.

    Or go for a walk/jog at one of several local parks, play tennis, ride mountain bikes at one of 3 off road bike trails, or walk the canal in Brictown, or walk the trails along the Oklahoma River, or climb the walls at OKC Rocks, or skate board at one of 3 skate parks, or swim at one of several public pools, or go bowling or ride the canal boats or ride the river boats (one serves dinner), or roller blade or go roller or ice skating, or go to a movie (theater or drive in), or visit one of many museums, the list of things to do goes on and on, I just listed a few for starters.

    I can empathize with RealJimbo and applaud him for his efforts to do his shopping. I have even helped individuals take out their groceries that truly have disabilities. The ones that have abused the drive thru and have caused the limitation were the fat and lazy. I have seen them order a complete grocery list because they are to lazy to go in for themselves. Bacon, juice, ice cream, cones, sausage, coke, freezes with ALL the toppings, etc... Notice no veggies or healthier items. Heck with the need to continually consume something they are practically gnawing at their steering wheel before the clerk can get their items to them. Those are the people that caused Braum's to cut back on their window ordering. I wonder if 7-11 or On CUE will start installing motorized scooters? BTW I love the frozen yogurt. It's my favorite.
