Leaky basement chimney and leaky basement block walls

chimney… so wtf was the homeowner supposed to do again? Raise and slope the stupid grade? pffft
Were they supposed to have some idiot come over and install drain tiles outside… inside? pffttt
What else? Add 500 mile long downspout extension from here to Trump’s Mara-dkkkko joint?

Block basement walls, homeowner gets water in … in the areas we’re digging! Nowhere else, owned the bitch house for 15 years, leaks nowhere else so wtf would any honest contractor talk any homeowner into doing any more footage than necessary? No, he’s no remodeling his fkg basement.
And how about the gas company leaving him with an exterior glory-hole, got dat?
