(RNN) - Before smartphones, teenagers who would claim they saw Warren Buffett sitting on a park bench with rock 'n' roll legend Paul McCartney would have been laughed at and called a liar.

Thank goodness for camera phones and social media.

Tom White, 16, saw this unlikely pair sitting on a bench in the Dundee neighborhood of Omaha after dinner, so he did what any teenager in 2014 would do - he took a selfie.

The Beatle and the Billionaire ate dinner at an Italian restaurant and had a couple of scoops of ice cream.

Although McCartney permitted photographs, he said no to autographs or handshakes, according to the Huffington Post. 

However, The Omaha World Herald reports Sir Paul was nothing but polite to the crowd.

McCartney was in town for a show. Back in June, the rock star was ill with a virus and canceled some tour dates in Asia.
