AUSTIN, TX—It's not every day you become the richest man in the world, and the newly crowned holder of the title decided he was going to do a little something special for himself to celebrate. Famed inventor and all-around weirdo Elon Musk waltzed into a local Chipotle restaurant, slapped down a hundred-dollar bill, and ordered a burrito with a side of extra guac.
"You know what? I've arrived, and I'm gonna treat myself," he said with a smile as he told the cashier to go ahead and ring him up for the small cup of guacamole, unattainable for the average American at $1.95. "And what the heck -- let's add the chips and guac too. I've earned this."
"And you know what, hon?" he said to the cashier. "Buy yourself something nice." He then flipped a quarter into the tip jar, spun around on his heel, and waltzed out of the place like a total baddonkey.
At publishing time, Musk's careless spending had pushed him down the list several places.
