Homeless Genius Bar Worker Doesn't Think Your Broken iPod is a Life Crisis

Andy Bussell works as a Genius at an Apple Store in California by day. By night, he is homeless. It's not that Apple doesn't pay livable wages - no, Andy is homeless by choice. He decided to start sleeping in his truck once he realized he was wasting all his money on rent and had credit card and school bills burying him. Now he's getting ready to graduate and has nearly paid off his $10,000 worth of credit card debt.

Here's an easier way to get rid of credit card debt if willful homelessness doesn't sound appealing to you: don't buy what you can't afford, no matter how shiny it is.
