Man Delivers To House Daily, Neighbor Hides Camera


Secret Revealed

The elderly man couldn’t hold on any longer, tears streamed down his face and she cradled the box in his hands. The closely kept secrets were out in the open.

Now that everybody in the small community knew about what was really going on they had to act. As the authorities spilled into the room, he just hoped his grandpa would be okay.



Carlos Valdez and his bride loved nothing more than fast food. They ate way more than they ever let on because it was a weakness for them. But of all fast foods, pizza was the biggest culprit.

The parents of one had every restaurant they loved on speed dial. But things would change once they move to a different town.

Keep It Going


There were many boxes and chaos occurring in every room. But despite that, they knew they needed to keep their delivery schedule.

Carlos looked at a list of restaurants nearby and ordered a mouth-watering 12-inch pizza from Papa John’s.

Something Off


But when the delivery driver arrived and knocked on Carlos’ door, he couldn’t have expected what he saw.

The delivery driver was a man old enough to be his grandfather. How was he still working at his age? He flashed a grin at Carlos and gave him his pizza before waving goodbye.

Info Probing


Carlos noticed over the next few weeks that the man did deliveries often, his car was run down and always had piles of boxes inside.

Many times Carlos ordered food he saw the elderly man delivering his meal, he got to chatting with him and learned a bit more about him.



The cheerful old bloke was Derlin, and he was a whopping 89 years young!

He was always smiling, but Carlos felt that there was something hiding behind the man’s grin. He decided he set up a porch camera to find out for sure.



He ordered a four-cheese with mushrooms and greeted the old man as usual.

They engaged in small talk about the weather, kids going on vacation, and the latest rumors around town. But Carlos managed to pry one piece of info from the man.

Background Check


He managed to get the man’s last name – his full name was Derlin Newey and he could definitely work with that.

He got some phone numbers together and every single one had the same knowledge. They told him the man was stepping where he shouldn’t. Carlos had to do something.

All Ears


People soon spoke up after they saw the video that he posted.

The authorities were also eager to step in. Carlos just wanted to watch every unravel so he found himself walking up Derlin’s driveway.

Surprise Visitors


After a couple of ding dongs on the bell, the old, wrinkled face peeked out the window.

His eyes went wide as he opened the door and saw the row of police. Carlos reached out. “May we come in?” he asked, offering a handshake. Derlin gave a nervous smile and nodded.

For You


Inside was simple and tidy. The only so-called clutter was the many photos of a beautiful woman.

“I have something for you,” Carlos said. He held his breath and handed over a pizza box. Derlin took it with shaking hands. But when he opened it, the shivering went to his entire body

TikTok Intervention


Inside the box was $12,000 and a custom t-shirt with a cartoon drawing of the grandfather.

“I saw something that didn’t sit well with me,” Carlos said. “So I reached out to my TikTok fans and showed them a clip of you.” What was the thing that everyone saw and agreed on, the thing that worried them all?

Huge Tip


A man his age should not have been working, and especially not delivering things to more dangerous parts of town!

So, everyone pitched together to give him the biggest tip of his life. The old pizza delivery man broke into tears. But that wasn’t the end.

Lonely And Struggling


The officers also knew about the senior’s situation – after all, they were customers of his too.

Each and every one of them promised they would make regular visits, not only to make sure he was okay but to keep him company and show their appreciation. Derlin finally shared his secret. His wife had died only a few years ago, and he was no longer able to live on his pension checks.

New Hope


He had to work just to eat. He had also been very lonely, but too proud to say anything.

Through the sobs he thanked them over and over again, saying he had new hope in life. Carlos gave him a huge hug and said that his wife and daughter wanted him to be a part of their regular family dinners. But this time, they would bring the food.
