GeneralI literally lost a unique key... Pin

I got home yesterday and found my left arrow key missing on my 20 year old keyboard...
The keys are pretty solid. I've tried to get them off once, but without success.

Suspect #1, the cleaner. She's the only one who has been in my house, save for the cat.
Suspect #2, there wasn't any. No way in hell that the cat could've done this without throwing the keyboard on the floor or anything.

So I asked the cleaner, but she told me it already was like that.
She sometimes brings her son, but he was at school.
She DID offer me a new keyboard though, pretty awesome for someone who did not break my keyboard in any way!
So... One person in the house and she knows nothing about the key.

I've searched and ultimately found the key, broken, in the bag of the vacuum cleaner.
Confronted the cleaner with it, but she still denies knowing anything about it.
"Must've happened while I was cleaning and I didn't notice."
So you wreck a nearly unbreakable keyboard and somehow manage to get the key in the vacuum cleaner (must've made some noise!) and do so without noticing!? WTF | :WTF:

I gave her the benefit of the doubt because she's been my cleaner for over a year without any problems and I really don't feel like finding another cleaner.

For a minute there I was afraid I'd be needing a new keyboard, but it seems my old friend can stay with me a little longer Big Grin | :-D
