A 4th Grade Drop Out Invented Flamin' Hot Cheetos While Mopping Floors

42 956 Áhorf 4,3 m.

Richard Montañez was a dropout. He could barely read or write in English and mopped floors for a living.
But that changed when he stood up to America's top executives when pitching a billion-dollar idea.

    Wait.. in the netherlands we only have cheetos cheese and we used too had peanut flavour.. but did it started with 'flammin hot', or is it just a side product of natural cheetos?

    i remember there was that simpsons episode where mr burns wanted a new executive on the board but someone from te rank and file. they pick homer and during a board room meeting mr burns asks his executives what are their ideas on bringing up employee morale. they give out the cookie cutter answers like layoffs, putting flouride in the water fountain etc. then mr burns got angry because those are his type of answers and the executives are nothing more than regurgitating his answers. he asks homer how he would increase employee morale. homer answers give the workers more tartar sauce with their meals for dipping... then mr burns applauds homer for his ingenuity, as a full employee was a happy employee meaning more productivity and employee morale boost up like crazy. so basically the executives maybe paid top dollars and they're supposed to be thinking of new ideas for new products to make money but they're in their own little bubble world sometimes and they can't see past the bubble.
