Hyderabad: Did you ever stuck in a situation where you could not find transportation to reach home? The first thought you might get is to hire a cab. However, a youth in Hyderabad found an innovative idea. Instead of spending money on transportation, he used it to order food on the food delivery app.
According to the report published in NDTV, at around 11:50 p.m, when the youth failed to find an auto to reach home, he checked fares on cab service app. Finding the fares too high, the youth decided to book an order on Zomato in order to get a free ride to home.
As per the Facebook post shared by the youth, Obesh Komirisetty, he ordered egg dosa from a Dosa Bandi near him. When the delivery boy came to take the order from the Dosa Bandi, the youth requested a free ride after informing that it is his order.
The delivery boy accepted his request and asked the youth to give a five-star rating.
Later, the youth shared his experience on Facebook. He wrote, ” It was around 11.50 pm, 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 it’s around 300 Rs and also I am little hungry. 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 pickup 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”.
Responding to his post, Zomato Care wrote, “Modern problems require modern solutions”.
Other netizens also applauded him for his ‘genius’ idea.
