Jim Berousek : I dont think the reporter knows what a U-boat is

Valentina69 : " I don't wanna be on camera" *Blurrs already exposed face* LOL

A. Nonamoose : "My driveways wet, I might as well kill myself".

UmaroXP : Possibly the least interesting story I've ever seen.

jim h : I'll tell you exactly why the water is setting on her driveway... Her drive way doesn't drain to the street..she needs to replace her driveway so it drains like it should... Before the new house was build her water drained onto that property... Now she has to deal with the problem... He driveway

Handy Menagerie : The new house is graded to current building code, the old house is not. Plain and simple. Her driveway is sloped incorrectly.

fangzea : I love when people think that government employees care.

james read : Heres a good idea Diane. Sell your home now, because the market you live in is hot!!! Take the money and buy a nicer home in the country so you wont have to complain about run off and mcmansions

michael kula : Must have been a REALLY slow news day for a flooded driveway to become a story.

GhostLaughingMan : That's not a mcmansion but just a big house

Tasha Macie : I live in it nice neighborhood with a lot of old almost historical houses and now every once in awhile when you're driving down the street you see a cookie cutter house that looks like it belongs in one of those gated communities and it just doesn't fit. It has no charm.

Gabe : She doesn't want to be on camera. Too bad. She works in a public building the public has a right to be, including press. You are literally public relations, everything you do at your job is public. LOL at the well timed face blur

Mike K. : i don't consider this house a mcmansion. it's not especially ugly (though not particularly attractive) like the usual mcmansion that's cobbled together with different housing styles, this one has a certain 'look'.

jim h : That's Gods way of telling her to fix her driveway

Dr. John Jones : The older home is flooding because in fact it is not up to code. Your house has to be 1 foot higher the city street in front. Thus why the old house was up and the new build is up. But none of the "news warriors" know the code so they just say anything.... Like how she said "you need a world war 2 nazi submarine" to park in a drive way. #cantfixstupid

juliadennehy : I just watched for the legs.

Brennan Matthews : A “ U-Boat!?!?” Lol

LillyLavine : Just put in a drain

Penny Adams : These developers don't care about the people that live next door. They don't care if their approved build affects others. They only care about profits. The build is to code for that property, that's as much care they give, now on to profit.

Sage Oldmann : People don’t don’t care if it doesn’t effect them

Patrick Ryan : The public relations officer doesn’t want to be on camera?? Shouldn’t that be a requirement of the job?

Vince : A public official doesn't want to be on camera well tough.

Julie Purpleskater : Replacing smaller, older, more affordable homes with McMansions is a large part of the reason why so few Americans can afford to buy a home these days. The stock of "starter" homes keeps diminishing. :(

Chris Edwards : Nothing will change the people that build these types of homes are heartless greedy bastards. And they will get protection from the city and never get punished they will spend the rest of their live doing this same thing

Dee B. : i laughed @ the blur after showing her face. so petty

Viktor Meilands : It's funny they blur her face only after she says it

Robert : The new home should have a retaining wall installed to direct the water to the street. You can tell the land was raised and yes the water is being directed to the neighbors house. The new home is fine, but the older homeowners should not have to deal with water issues or pay for it to be fixed.

VroodenTheGreat : A U-boat? REALLY?

Brandon Rutherford : Build a retaining wall at the edge of the driveway and let the new house flood

Rowan Quinn : What's so hard about them adding a drain in the grass be nice and easy and everyone would be happy

Barnaby ap Robert : 1:47 Is the reporter wearing stocking with seams down the back? Sexy! ;-P

Sickentist : As a homeowner I sympathize with the old lady. But where we differ is where she says she doesn't know what to do about it. I know exactly what I'd do.

Joe Shmoe : It is already against code and illegal to drain water onto your neighbor's property. But the real problem is the driveway doesn't shed water. It's a pool. If I was the owner of the large house it would be cheapest for me to give them a drain. Even if I put in a small retaining wall, a foot high, they still would have the flooding problem. They just got away with the mistake for many years.

Reid Plyler : I would just place a pump in water and spray back at the house especially when shown for sale. I think it would be fixed really soon then.

Joni I luv my fam : 👩‍💼🎙So back up the stairs we went to try and get real answers from Beth, the public relations officer... ..."📽🙍‍♀️I don't want to be on camera." Ok... "📽🙈"

Tom V : A public relations person that does not want to be on camera.

William Morton Jr. : The main problem is that the land where the old driveway was located on the property of the New House use to be level with the driveway that is now getting flooded. The builders completely changed elevation of the yard of the New House. The elevation on the edge of the property should not have changed.

Carl Clouser III : Local governments get more money from the bigger houses. They won't do anything because the smaller house can be destroyed and a bigger one built, in turn getting the government more money

Papa Bear : should have a 2% slope. Blame the mason who poured her driveway,

Numb Skull : Cursed mcmansions, I thought Ted Wassanasong learn his lesson the first time.

Angel Bulldog : McMansions are tacky. I wouldn't ever want one.

Brian Elton : That rain water build up is a fairly easy fix. Just a few thousand dollars would fix it. But the contractor who built that new house they should be responsible for that. Personally I think that's a lawsuit waiting to happen. And I believe that the owner next to the mcmansion has all the right here.

xsailor85 : It reminds me of what happened on King of the Hill when a McMansion came to their street.

JESUS is the only way : If it was my Gramma house all she would do is sweep the water away and she wouldn't complain.

AmethystEyes : We have them popping up everywhere in my town.

Frank Deventer : Just build a 4 feet waterproof wall. Or talk to the owners about a solution. Only thing I saw where those LEGS btw

Third3ye : I would find a way to pump that water back to their property, Screw that noise.

Randall Turner : The way things had always been before the driveway didn't flood. Now things were changed and the driveway floods. Who changed things? The developer did. So why are some of you blaming the victim here? Common sense is not a common thing it appears.

Joshua79C C : Not best size of lot for such a large house, look at how little lawn there is now! I seen such McMansions build on lots four times or more larger than this postage stamp lot, seriously sitting on a 1/3 rd to 1/5 th of an acre or a few thousand square foot of property.

Phish N' Chimps : a U-Boat? how bout walk through it.
