Guy Gets Pizza Delivered to His Stalled Train

When we’re stuck somewhere in transit and getting increasingly hungry and irritated, most of are probably apt to just sit there feeling sorry for ourselves. But this guy, Mitch Katz, is not most of us.

On Sunday, May 14, Katz was stuck on an Amtrak train 161, which had stalled en route to Washington, D.C. — a mechanics-related service disruption ultimately resulted in a three-hour delay — and he found himself getting “hangry,” he tweeted. So, after more than an hour of waiting, he called to have a pizza delivered to his car on the train, stranded between stations, from a local spot.

It worked. The intrepid pizza delivery guy apparently navigated around obstacles — a fairly steep embankment, a grody-looking puddle between the embankment and the train — to locate Katz in his train car and offer him sustenance. We know this because Katz posted a video of the delivery guy trudging along beside the train, red pizza delivery bag in hand.

“Problem solved,” Katz tweeted. “Pizza delivery has arrived.”
And yes, it appears that Katz did offer to share. (#inspiring!)
