perils of the evil french Apple keyboard

⌘Q is just left of ⌘S.
⌘W is just right of ⌘</⌘>.

Over the last five days, I lost a total of three hours of work at home.

There must be such a thing as location-based muscular memory: losing work like that only happened once at the office, where I’ve been using a Mac for over a year. Yet once I get home, hitting the Apple key just isn’t natural anymore, as I fumble, grumble and close windows.
Damn you, command key place of interest sign!
