Hyderabad, Aug 16 (IANS) Food apps have made things easy for people to order food from comforts of their homes and satiate their hunger, but here is a case where a Zomato user in Hyderabad used it to reach his destination.
A Facebook post of Obesh Komirisetty went viral on Friday with many on the social media site lauding his innovative thinking to hitch the ride with the food-delivery boy after he was left stranded at a shopping mall in Hitec City, the information technology hub.
Obesh revealed through a Facebook post last week that he had to come out with the novel idea to reach his home as he was unable to find public transport or a cab.
"It was around 11.50 p.m. I am at Inorbit Mall road and looking for an auto but couldn't find anything to reach my room. So I opened Uber app but ride fares were high... around 300 Rs and also I am little hungry," wrote Obesh, who is from Vijayawada and lives in Hyderabad.
"I just opened Zomato and searched for food shops around me, I found one Dosa Bandi near me and ordered Egg Dosa. The delivery boy came and he was going to pick up my order at Dosa Bandi. So I called him and said this is my order, I asked him to drop me in the delivery location (My Room Address). So he dropped me along with order at my room. And he asked me 'sir, please give 5 star rating'. I said OK. Thanks to Zomato for the free ride," says the youth's social media post.
Many on social media loved Obesh's innovative thinking and called him a genius. Some even called him a legend.
Zomato also replied to Obesh with the comment "modern problems require modern solutions".
