Photo of billionaire Bill Gates waiting in line at Seattle burger joint goes viral

Microsoft founder Bill Gates has a $95 billion fortune, but he still has to wait in line for a burger just like everyone else. On Tuesday, he was spotted in casual attire outside Dick’s Drive-In, a fast-food joint in Seattle, Washington. The tech giant could afford to eat lobster fritattas, Kobe beef patties stuffed with foie gras, and truffle-infused unicorn steak, but instead, he opted for more sensible fare: At Dick’s, a deluxe burger costs $3.40, fries cost $1.90, and a large Coke costs $2.38.

 Mike Galos, a former Microsoft employee, noticed the burger loving billionaire and snapped his photo.

Galos shared the photo on Facebook with the caption, “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.” He then took a swipe  at President Donald Trump, writing, “THIS is how real rich people behave unlike the gold toilet seat wannabe poser in the White House.”

 The photo of Gates waiting in line just like any ordinary man has received more than 17,000 likes and 14,000 shares. “Nobody seems to notice him…he fits right in,” observed one Facebook user, while another added, “He’s my kind of guy!” A third wrote, “I know he’s a sucker for a good, greasy tech-fuel burger.” Indeed, the 63-year-old philanthropist is a loyal customer at Burgermaster in Bellevue, Washington, as well.

 During an appearance at the University of Washington in 2011, Gates disclosed that money hasn’t changed his culinary cravings.

 “I can understand wanting to have millions of dollars, there’s a certain freedom, meaningful freedom, that comes with that,” he stated.

 He added, “But once you get much beyond that, I have to tell you, it’s the same hamburger. Dick’s has not raised their prices enough.”
