SEATTLE: Microsoft founder and billionaire Bill Gates may be the second richest person on earth but will be waiting in line just like the rest of us for a burger, fries, and Coke.
A former Microsoft employee Mike Galos on Tuesday shared on Facebook a casual photo of the burger-loving billionaire standing in a queue outside a fast-food restaurant chain in Seattle, Washington, waiting to get his order.
The American business magnate with a fortune of $95.5 billion was wearing a red sweater, gray pants and black sneakers.
“When you’re worth about $100,000,000,000, run the largest charity in the history of the world and stand in line for a burger, fries and Coke at Dick’s like the rest of us,” Mike Galos, a Former Program Manager at Microsoft wrote on Facebook.
“THIS is how real rich people behave unlike the gold toilet seat wannabe poser in the White House,” he added in an apparent swipe at US President Donald Trump. The post went viral on Facebook and has been shared more than 17,000 times.
Several Twitter users also joined in, gushing about the humility of Mr. Gates. The photo has racked up 15,000 likes and shares over 16,000 times.
