GETTING A RIDE WITH THE DELIVERY PERSON
Ingenuity comes in many forms. For a young Hyderabad man named Obesh Komirisetty, it was about finding an affordable ride from a mall to his home on a recent night. He couldn’t find an auto-rickshaw to take him home and didn’t want to pay Rs. 300 or more to Uber. He also wanted to buy something to eat. That’s when it struck him—he could kill two birds with one stone. “I just opened Zomato and searched for food shops around me,” he wrote on Facebook.
Finding a dosa restaurant, he ordered an egg dosa to be delivered to his home. When the delivery man for Zomato showed up on his motorcycle, Komirisetty told him it was his order and asked if he could get a ride to the delivery location.
“So he dropped me along with order at my room,” Komirisetty wrote. “And he asked me, ‘Sir, please give 5-star rating.’ I said OK. Thanks to Zomato for the free ride.”
Zomato showed its approval on Twitter: “Modern problems require modern solutions.”
