I need a comma!

Actually, it's an 'M' that I need. It has worn off my keyboard, and the result is that I frequently end up pressing the 'M' key when I want a comma.

Evidently, there is a pattern in my brain that says – since I don't touch type perfectly and still look at the keyboard a lot – that a comma is obtained by hitting the key next to the last letter along the bottom. I see the 'N', which also has the expected upright and diagonal strokes, then press the next key along.

The resultm I must saym is quite frustrating...
