SF Drabble #292 “Quality Control”

Rick here. Third message. I really need you to call back, everybody here is getting a little antsy. The higher-ups O.K.’ed taking the prototype home for the weekend to put It through some real-world tests, but now it’s Tuesday afternoon and we haven’t heard from you or gotten any reports. And of course, the tech boys want the prototype back as soon as you can get it here, obviously: apparently there’s still some leftover military code they need to track down and cut out. Nothing to worry about, though. So, call back. Or just come in as soon as possible.
