Using his wits, an Indian man was able to get around his dilemma of finding a ride home in the most unusual way possible. His creative method won him a number of fans online after he shared his story on Facebook.
Obesh Komirisetty wrote on Facebook that he was at a mall and could not find a ride home. "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," he wrote.  He tried using a cab-hailing app but found the prices to be too expensive, NDTV reports. He also wrote that he was getting hungry at the time.
Komirisetty then had a brilliant idea - he looked for restaurants near his location and ordered food to be delivered to his home.

"The delivery boy came and he was going to pick up my order... So, I called him and said this is my order, I asked him to drop me in the delivery location (my room address)," the Zomato rider obliged and dropped him, as well as his order, back home.
At the end of the trip, the delivery boy only asked Komirisetty for a five-star rating.
His story went viral and even caught the attention of Zomato. The food-delivery app responded to his post by saying 'modern problems require modern solutions'.
