FLETCHER – Time moves slowly in small towns, but Fletcher, Ohio is still stuck in November.
The Miami County Bugle Caller Research and Discovery Unit (MCBCRDU) visited Fletcher on December 2nd to find out if it was actually a real place. Not only did they discover life within the town, they found that all clocks and calendars were six days behind the actual time and date.
The MCBCRDU encountered several individuals shopping for Thanksgiving dinners, and the only local business had a “Black Friday deal” sign on their door. The scene was strikingly Novemberish.
One reporter even cited a local man saying “welcome to Fletcher, Ohio! Today is November 27th!”
Our investigative team believes that the people of Fletcher never received memo about daylight savings, and the hours just added up over the years and kept them in the past.
“I don’t think they ever received that pigeon, back in 1918 or whatever. The people of Fletcher have lived in their own small world here since the town was incorporated.” said Chief Investigator Matthew Ronald Vasquez-Miller.
The phenomena still has no explanation, but is not likely to affect many people, since nobody has business being in Fletcher or can even find the town in the first place. Visit Fletcher yourself, it’s real, we promise.
