A clever way to get a ride

The New York Times obituary
for Gene D. Cohen
has a good story in it:

His in-laws had arrived for a visit in Washington in the midst of a snowstorm and emerged from the subway lost. Unable to hail a cab or reach the Cohen family by phone, Dr. Cohen’s father-in-law had an idea. He and his wife walked across the street to a pizza parlor, ordered a pizza for a delivery to the Cohen house, and then insisted that the delivery man take them, too.

Dr. Cohen was a geriatric psychiatrist, and he used this story
as an example of how decades of experience can lead to agile creativity.
