BILLIONAIRE Bill Gates stunned diners at a fast food joint as he was spotted waiting in line for a £5.93 burger and fries.
The dressed-down Microsoft founder paid a quick visit to Dick’s Drive-In in Seattle on Sunday, much to the amazement of fellow diners.
Gates, who is worth a staggering £75 billion and according to The Street earns £98 per second, was papped by an former Microsoft employee who uploaded it to a closed Microsoft alumni board page.
Mike Galos, a local who saw the photo, shared it on his 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…
WORTH £75 BILLION
“THIS is how real rich people behave unlike the gold toilet seat wannabe poser in the White House.”
Gate’s casual appearance praised by hundreds for his ability to “fit in” with everyone else and not being above a greasy meal and sugary drink.
The picture of the 63-year-old has racked up 15,000 likes and 12,000 shares.

Mike added: “Bill’s not big on attention but is generally friendly and understands he’s a bit of a celebrity…I’ve chatted with him at parties before but on the street or in a restaurant I don’t know him well enough to go over and say hi.”
“Nobody seems to notice him…he fits right in!” one Facebook user wrote.
Another said: “Bill is legit, unlike some others.”
BURGER, CHIPS AND COKE
“Bill Gates, a true American.” another added.
“I know he’s a sucker for a good, greasy tech-fuel burger,” one fan wrote.
Many made jibes at the President, comparing the two billionaires’ attitudes.
