    Is it the right shift key? If so, it would be very strange to see two keys just stop working with no outside influence (like a spill).
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    but why would it matter if it was the left or right key? (sorry kinda still new to mac laptops) like u said if 2 keys arnt working then something happen prolly.

    could some one have gotten to it while you were gone?

    Well, if the effected keys were grouped, I'd suspect it was a spill.
