BA of the Week: Professional House Bitch Elliot James Byrnes
Every week we feature a different person from the community shedding a little light on their life of brokeitude. Who knows, maybe you’ll learn something about the human spirit — probably not.

Elliot wrote me saying that he’s been laid off for a year and a half and has now become a legit broke-ass. Well, welcome to the club my friend! While his answers are short some are pretty funny. Plus, he’s the first “house bitch” we’ve ever had as Broke-Ass of the Week. Read below for what Elliot has to say.
