When she took a peek inside, she almost fell to the floor. She had a hard time grasping what she was seeing with her own eyes. But what made things worse is the fact that it had taken her this long to notice. She’d known this man for years, as he’d often come to her house. But she could’ve never imagined what his living conditions looked like. Now that she had finally realized, she just knew she needed to do something about it.

Angela Nguyen would’ve never ever thought she’d cross the line and meddle in any of her customers’ lives. Angela works as a Domino’s pizza delivery driver, so when she interacts with customers, it barely lasts a few minutes. Even though she’s super friendly and personable, (which always helps her get better tips) she doesn’t really spend too much time engaging with a customer when she delivers their pizzas. But one of her customers, Lee Haase, was definitely the exception.

76-year-old Lee Haase has been ordering pizza from Domino’s forever. According to the staff at Ham Lake Domino’s Pizza, Lee has been placing an order every Saturday at 10:15. But this type of customer loyalty isn’t really that uncommon, especially if the customer is elderly or is homebound. Calling Domino’s to order a delicious pizza is super easy, cheap, and reliable. So, after a while, Lee became a part of Domino’s staff’s lives. Sadly, no one knew what was going on behind closed doors.

Angela and Sarah Hughes, her daughter, are mainly the two drivers who take care of delivering pizzas to Lee. They’ve been working at Domino’s for years, so they’ve gotten used to him, and kind of see him as a friend. Despite having been at Lee’s doorsteps for years, they’ve never really seen the inside of his house. One day, Sarah delivered a pizza at Lee’s house, when suddenly, he had to get back in to get some change. That’s when she got a chance to take a peek inside the house. She gasped at what she was seeing.

Living Conditions Were Poor

After a powerful storm had ruined the roof of Lee’s former house, the elderly man had been forced to move into a 12-foot camper since the previous fall. Angela and Sara believed his living conditions were only temporary until Lee would be able to save some money to move out and fix his roof. But when Sara saw the way he was living inside the camper, she realized Lee’s situation was extremely complicated.
