Bill Gates and Warren Buffett turn ice-cream delivery guys, break the internet
Billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffett took up jobs as restaurant employees and won the Internet over.
Bill Gates wrote in a blog that the two of them were in Omaha last month for Berkshire Hathaway's annual meeting and "broke away to visit a Dairy Queen for some lunch and to get some restaurant training, we learned to work the cash register, greet guests, and make a Blizzard (including the proper way to serve it, "Always upside down with a smile!")."
Gates posted on Twitter a video and said he would leave it to the viewers to judge their performance even though he thought he was a "quicker study than Warren in the Blizzard department."
He tweeted :
Warren and I recently picked up a @DairyQueen shift. I think I may have been a quicker study in the Blizzard department, but watch the video below and judge for yourself: https://t.co/BJc1nV4kpa pic.twitter.com/J1NgS0EbfE— Bill Gates (@BillGates) June 4, 2019
The attitude to continue learning at what age is wonderful.— 【公式】昼寝日和 (@ThisisSINoALICE) June 4, 2019

"Warren and I recently picked up a @DairyQueen shift. I think I may have been a quicker study in the Blizzard department, but watch the video below and judge for yourself," he captioned the post.
He wrote about Warren Buffet's "upside-down" view of the world in his blog and said, "He thinks differently—about almost everything. For starters, he credits his amazing success to something anyone could do," he wrote, quoting Buffet as saying: "I just sit in my office and read all day."
He even added said Buffet was "one of the most patient people I know", in a time when "instant gratification is craved in all aspects of life. Warren is willing to wait to get the results he wants. As he once said, "Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago."
Since the video was tweeted, it has gone viral, and the two have won praises for being humble and good sports despite their wealth and success.
