An Austin appliance repair technician is refusing to pay his bills after a video went viral showing him throwing away the dishwasher and washing machine.
In a video posted Tuesday, the owner of the dishwashers, an electrician, claims he doesn “have time for a piece-of-garbage,” but the owner also says he’s “not paying” the bills.
“It’s not like I’m giving you my time or my money,” the owner, identified only as “Cody,” told the homeowner.
“I’m paying my bills.”
The video shows Cody standing outside the home and throwing away a dishwasher he purchased a year ago.
“You got no business taking this stuff out of my house and just dumping it on the street,” he says.
“It’s kind of a piece and I don’t know what’s in there.”
In a phone interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation, Cody said he doesn.
“If you see me in the neighborhood I’ll tell you,” he said.
“That’s the truth.”
“I have to live in a place where you have to be careful around people,” Cody added.
“So, I’ll do whatever I can to help people, and I will always be careful.
If someone asks me what’s inside the dishwashing machine, I’m not going to lie about it.”
The Dishwasher’s owner also claims he was called a liar by the homeowner and called a “shill” by Cody.
“He said that I said he was a shill.
He was saying that I told him I was going to get rid of his dishwasher.
I’m telling you, he was saying all of these things, so I’ll just let that sink in,” the homeowner said.”
When I go out, I don ‘t bother anybody.
I don t want to talk to anybody.”
The homeowner said he didn’t know Cody, but his mother, who is also an electric company worker, told him the same thing about Cody.
“He said, ‘You’re lying,’ and he said it like that,” the neighbor said.
Cody denied this claim.
“I know it’s a lie, and it’s the worst thing I could say,” he told TheDCNF.
“All of this is just to try to hurt my reputation and try to get a lot of money.”
“You can’t blame me for wanting to take it out,” he added.
The owner of an Austin restaurant, a franchisee of the same name, also claims Cody called him a “dirty liar” and a “scam artist.”
The owner, who also asked that his last name not be used, told The Daily Call the owner told him that he had “no business” throwing away his dishwashes.
The restaurant owner told The Caller that the dish washers are in good condition and “all the dishes in the dishwash are clean.”
The dishwasher’s owners claim they will not be paying Cody and will not replace the dish in his place.
“We’re not going anywhere,” the owners said.
The owners are also calling for a boycott on Cody’s Facebook page.
“People who are not paying their bills are not going home, they’re not moving out,” the Facebook page reads.
“When you can’t pay, you can be evicted and your money goes right back to your landlord.
But you should always have to have your money back.”
