Shingles – 9
by Rick Gualtieri
David Reese doesn’t like technology. So, he was left feeling a bit hung out to dry when his new washing machine turned out to have more bells and whistles than he was comfortable with.
When a freak accident brings the machine to life, though, Dave begins to fear it could lead to a nightmare future, one in which mankind has been permanently pressed out of existence.
Is his newly sentient washer content with simply bleaching his underwear or is it planning to rinse humanity away in a final spin cycle of torment?
