Billionaire Buds Bill Gates and Warren Buffett Even Like to Test Out Mattresses Together
Entrepreneur's New Year’s Guide
From playing bridge to riding in golf carts, the billionaires always manage to have a good time together. In fact, they even make furniture shopping look fun.
During the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting in May, Gates and Buffett took a short break from the busyness to stop by Berkshire’s Nebraska Furniture Mart. Buffett gave Gates a tour of the furniture megastore, and the buddies even “tried out some lounge chairs, played with remote-controlled mattresses and somehow managed to get lost,” Gates shared in a blog post.
In a video Gates posted online, the pals are seen testing out some plush mattresses, chatting about leadership and careers and doing a lot of joking around. "My real vocational goal was to be a mattress tester," Buffett tells Gates. "I never got that, but they did name a mattress after me. The Warren."
The buddies then head over the Warren to test it out. "I think this is better than the mattress I sleep on at home," Gates says.
