  • Anatoly Shashkin is a supermarket manager.
  • Someone used a coupon from 1983 at his store to save 20 cents on Crisco oil.
  • He tweeted a photo of the coupon and it's going viral.

Anatoly Shashkin has been in the supermarket business for 13 years (as well as a gaming YouTuber and podcaster on the side). But this was a first.

A customer recently came into his North Shore Farms supermarket in Mineola, New York, with a coupon to save 20 cents on Crisco oil from 1983. That's a 36-year-old coupon.

Shashkin posted a photo on Twitter, where it went viral with nearly 2,000 retweets and 11,000 likes. 

People were impressed that someone had managed to hold onto it for this long. 

Some also pointed out that the inflation rate since 1983 has made the 20 cent discount less valuable. 

Better late than never, as far as coupons are concerned.
